about this item

Practice makes perfect, and it's never been more fun to practice writing than with the Fisher-Price Think & Learn Alpha SlideWriter! It brings hands-on fun to learning how to write and spell…and it's mess-free, too! With the moveable tiles, kids can touch each of the letters and slide them around to make a word. Then they can use that word as a model to practice writing, letter by letter, on the erasable screen. And there are printed guide lines on the screen too, so preschoolers know where to cross their T's and dot those I's! The Alpha SlideWriter comes with a specially designed pen that guides preschoolers into a correct (and comfy!) pencil grasp, helping them develop important fine motor skills. And when they've mastered that grasp, simply remove the triangle-shaped grip and store it on the back of the Alpha SlideWriter! Where development comes into play Letter Recognition: Kids are introduced to each letter as they begin to manipulate and move them. Spelling: Once preschoolers can recognize the letters, they begin to slide them around to make familiar words. Dexterity: The pen was designed with growing hands in mind; a triangle shape guides little hands into a correct pencil grasp and can be removed when they're ready! For ages 3 to 6 years.

We got this toy in hopes of getting my four year old to practice her latter writing. My daughter is a lefty so it can be hard to use toys with built it cords. She liked using this toy. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]  see moreof JanetG's review

    This product is like a slate that helps your child learn how to write their ABCs uppercase! What I love about it is that it's mess free no need of chalk or crayons....the pen is attached to the product so it won't be misplaced. Besides learning the alphabets, it allows your child to form/spell o...  see moreof Fatema's review

      Fun to use, tiles tricky to manipulate

      My daughter is enjoying this product so far. A few suggestions: letter tiles should have extra vowels and more blank tiles (for stickers), as children who are developing readers/writers will most likely be practicing CVC and CVCe words. Perhaps include pictures with the letters (cat for c, for examp...  see moreof 's review

        I was very pleasantly surprised by this item. I love how you can slide the letters around the board to create a word. My kids have not stopped playing with this. I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old, both who are highly entertained by this toy. My 4 year old recognizes letters and can even write cer...  see moreof FLMommyof2's review

          My 3 year old son absolutely loves this writing board. I can put letters or words together for him to practice his writing, spelling and sounding out words together. It's easy to erase the writing and slide the letters to make new words. I love that it came with extra letter stickers to put in the t...  see moreof Stephaniean7's review

            I have two kids one in kindergarten and one in preschool. They love this learning toy so much. My son was able to practice writing his name and was able to recognize letters easily. The rubber grip helps him on how to properly hold a pen. He would sing the ABC song and move the tiles in order. My da...  see moreof ddmae's review

              Both my 3 year old and 4.5 year old have used the Think & Learn Alpha. My 3 year old loves writing and practicing letters. My older daughter has less attention and likes to draw. The writing screen doesn't allow for much creativity other than writing letters. The letters are like a puzzle to maneuve...  see moreof ReenieO's review
