i absolutely love Alphie and so does my son. everything about it is great my only problem is that it says for 3+ my son is a very advanced 3 yr old and found a lot of the educational stuff was more towards a 4 yr old. but even then i probably still buy it for him and work on the cards eventually

I bought this as a gift for my 5 year old son. I wanted to buy it for him because I remember having so much fun with my "original" Alphie from the 80's. Alphie teaches a wide variety of things a child his age should be learning and is also very encouraging and confidence boosting.

I bought this for my 3.5 year old son for Christmas. It's great, it's heavy duty, big and seems durable and easy to use. reminds me of the robots I loved as a child. I recommend!

I used to have an Alphie when I was a child. Now I am a 28 year old mother of a 2 year old son. My son plays with my old Alphie at my parents home. (YES it still works!) I asked my son what he wants for Chiristmas while we were looking at a toy catalog. He turned a few pages back and then said, "I want Alphie!" I just bought it today and I know he will love it!

My daughter just turned 3 on February 1st- we got her this toy for Christmas and she loves it. It's a great toy-the pack of cards included has some of everything, music, counting, letters. She listens to the ABC song over and over as well as the numbers. She loves to hear the praise alphie gives with correct answers. Some of the cards seem a little beyond her, but she will get them with time =) I remember alphie from when I was little! Good to see it remade.

My 3 year old got the Alphie Robot from Santa Claus this christmas. He loved it, but it was not working. To use another card we had to turn the robot off and on again and thats not correct. we returned it to toysrus and heard it might come up an recall for this product because we werent the only once that returned the Alphie Robot. Its cute and sounds funny and could be great if it works correctly.

bought this for my 5 year old. i know its targeted for ages slightly younger, but i felt it would be a good reinforcement and practice for kindy. he LOVES it (as he does anything 'robot') no problems with the cards, we havent gone through all of them, but so far so good.

  • A. There are additional card packs you can purchase--and I recommend them. That way, once your child completes the fairly substantial number of cards that comes with Alphie--they have new ones to learn with! We bought the music & sounds card pack in addition to Alphie.
