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!
Use imagination in a variety of ways and contexts to communicate ideas

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.

Keeps my grandson well entertained. He loves playing with the alphabet side and talking on the fun. We have a large family and this is definitely one of his favorite Christmas toys.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BC fun but could use some adjustments
the shapes should turn instead of being unmoveable, the top piece snake shape comes off too easily

Rated 1 out of 5 by MomTeacher Unhappy with letter recognition
I am unhappy with this product as the letter cubes are not recognized correctly. The first letter I put in was an H (beginning of our daughter's name) cube says "You found K!" I put in a V cube says "You found W!" This happens with almost all of the letters. If I had a gift receipt I would try to return it for something that will give my child the correct information instead of this cube. I have had to hide the letters from my daughter because I don't want her to hear the wrong letter name. Very disappointed in this cube.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ash incorrect letter recognition
We purchased the activity cube for our son for Christmas and were so excited about all the different play options. Unfortunately when putting the letter blocks in the reader area it frequently misreads the letters calling the "R" an "S" etc. very disappointing!

Everything about it was great except that about 20% of the time it misreads a given block's letter by plus or minus one letter, calling a J a K, for example. And since VTech's website rejects their own techline address, there's no way to even let them know. My granddaughter is VERY unhappy that we had to take the blocks away from her.

The ONLY reason I gave this a 4 and not 5 stars is because only 1 side is electronic. If 4.9 were an option, i wouod of choosen that. However, for the price of [$]. I wouldn't expect it to be on all sides. I would of paid over $100 if not more if at least 2 sides were electronic. If you are thinking of purchasing this toy, it's well worth the money. Best thing I have bought for my 8 month old yet. She's not crawling yet but sits up and the top of this cube is just above her head so everything is right there in front of her face. Thanks to vtech' I can now walk more than 5 feet away and she can entertain herself. I have nit been able to do that in MONTHS. I was literally about to go crazy. THANK YOU!

We just got this toy for our daughter and she loves it. I'm always looking for toys that can be used for more than a few months and this toy is perfect. Being that she is right months old she currently enjoys the blocks and the pressing the buttons. As her hand/eye coordination improves Puting the letters in the slot and building things will be fun. I can see us using it further to learn our numbers and letters as well. This toy is worth the money!
