Rewards baby as they learn that their actions have reactions
Babies’ actions help them discover they can make things happen! If baby pushes an animal button on one of our toys they will hear the corresponding animal sound effect and learn that by pressing this button they get a response from it. To enhance babies learning experience VTech products provide many stimuli to get baby involved! Baby can press buttons to play music, push shaped blocks through windows to learn shapes and press number buttons to learn numbers!

Some things never go out of fashion. For generations, babies have been happily diverted by toy activity centers—sturdy panels with an explosion of colorful, easy-to-move buttons, knobs, wheels, and sliders that make interesting sounds or change pictures when a baby handles them. VTech’s new version of this classic toy, the action-packed Alphabet Activity Cube, is sure to fascinate any curious infant or toddler.
From an early age, play is an important component of a child’s development and learning. Great philosophers and scholars such as Plato, Aristotle and Locke placed significant value on play. Today’s educational experts continue to support the importance of developmentally appropriate play and developmentally appropriate toys for boys and girls. Choosing toys that appeal to our children and also support learning are important.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Molly LISTEN To It, The Grammar Is Just Fine
If a previous reviewer actually took the time to listen to this toy instead of just hearing it, they would know that it does NOT say "It be the letter __." It says "It's me, the letter __." Our 14 month old daughter loves this cube.
My main complaint is that it sounds off all day & night when no one is around & it hasn't been touched in hours. It's quite annoying to be fast asleep & startled awake because the demonic toy decided 3am was a good time to randomly play the same 7 songs consecutively & for no reason. It's creepy & incredibly irritating.

I love this activity cube. I think it is a great toy that will last a long time and my daughter will play with it for months to come. That is what makes this toy worth it. Bright colors, removable parts and many activities make this toy a must have.

My daughter loves the blocks. They fit her little hands well. More and more everyday she interacts with the toy. The bright colors, lights and sounds draw her attention. She loves to use the the cube to lean on, and has even climbed up and sat on top of it a couple of times.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ashley, mom to two For a learning toy, it teaches bad gramm
When your kid is learning about letters and the cube says "It be the letter B" does this sound like good grammar? No. As soon as we heard that we wanted to return it but it was my 10 month old's Christmas gift so we were in a bind. IF I had know it taught grammar like that I would have never bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnnie This product is awesome!
My granddaughter loves it! She's only 9 months old, yet it keeps her attention longer than anything else...she is definitely learning already, playing the keys, putting the blocks in the storage area(and getting them out!)...was worth the money, by far! Started playing with is @ Christmas, and the batteries are still going strong!
