I remember I have this when I was little. It was one of my favorite toys of all times. I'm gonna discuss about this toy. To turn on Alphabet Pal, you must switch it on, it will play a short opening tune, and Alphabet Pal will introduce you to himself by saying "Hi! I'm Alphabet Pal". There's a string you can pull along, so once you pulled it, it will sing the ABC Song. There's also the Edison button on Alphabet Pal's back. Once he's pressed for the first time, Edison will introduce you to himself by saying "Hi! I'm Edison. Let's sing along with Alphabet Pal". After he's pressed the second time, it will play the fun melody of the ABC Song. There's also a volume control switch which you could either turn it louder or quieter. There were also antennas that light up. There's also a speaker in the back of Alphabet Pal's head. It has wheels on the bottom where batteries are located. It also has the automatic shut off. After Alphabet Pal is left on and it's not played within at least 15-20 seconds, Alphabet Pal will leave you a short message that it's getting ready to turn itself off by saying "Thanks for learning with Leapfrog! Bye bye!" followed by a short ending tune. Pressing any of the buttons will turn him back on. There were four different modes in this toy. There was:
Letter Names - In this mode, you have to press a letter, and Alphabet Pal will say the name of the letter you pressed on. For example, if you press the letter "A", Alphabet Pal will say "A".
Letter Sounds - In this mode, you press a letter, and Alphabet Pal will the say the sound of what that letter makes. For example, if you press the letter "M", Alphabet Pal will say the sound of what the letter "M" makes by saying "Mmmm".
Colors - In this mode, you will press a letter, and Alphabet Pal will say the name of the color, based on that leg you pressed on. For instance, if you press the letter "O", Alphabet Pal will say the color "red". There were 4 different colors. The colors were red, yellow, green, and blue.
Music - In this mode, you can press any letter, and it will play fun melody for you to hear. For instance, if you press the letter "W", it will play "The Wheels on the Bus".
I would highly recommend this toy, and I really liked this toy a lot ever since I was a kid.
