Learning Resources Alpha Pop Review & Giveaway


     Once again I have a great educational product to share with you from Learning Resources.  This time I have the Alpha Pops.  Alpha pops are a fun smart snack for learning.  Basically they are realistic plastic Popsicles that snap together.  Each Popsicles has either a capital or lowercase letter on each side of them.  Then you can match the lowercase to the uppercase letter.  These are fun colorful Popsicles that can also be matched by color.

     I pulled these out for Jayden and he was immediately making matches.  It took him a moment to realize they were double sided and once he did he was able to go through and match all the letters.  He had fun identifying the letters.  After he put them together then he would take them apart again and give me one to "eat".  We would pretend to eat the Popsicles and then he'd put them back together and set it aside.  He did this until he had made all the matches.

Skills learned with Alpha Pops:
*    Matching uppercase and lowercase letters
*    Matching colors
*    Identifying letters
*    Fine Motor
*    Imagination

     Overall we really like the Alpha Pops.  They are fun and educational.  They are rated for children 2 years and up.  Jayden is 4 years old and still had fun playing with them.  They are durable and will likely last until Evan is old enough to play with them too.  The only thing that I would like to see different is I'd love to see each letter have their own Popsicle instead of being on the back.  I think putting them on the back helps to have less Popsicles, but putting them on the back makes it so children really only have to match 13 letters since they can turn it over and match that letter.

Learning Resources has so many great educational toys and games.  You can also read my reviews from many of the other great Learning Resource products.
