The sound of the ice cream truck is a sound that even a two year old knows. Even a teething toddler loves a popsicle. Learning Resources took this love of frozen delights and turned it into a love of learning. Smart Snacks Alpha Pops is a brand new addition to their 2012 line of educational toys. These soft plastic popsicles each come with two sticks, just like the treats from the olden days! Made for little hands, they come apart easily and go back together just as easily: an excellent toy with which to practice their fine motor skills. Each popsicle set has the capital and lowercase letter to match together. There are 13 popsicle sets, with different letters on the flip side to include all 26 letters. These bright colors and familiar shape instantly draw children into play, learning, and using their imagination. It was really nice to see that when the kids starting playing with these, the first thing they did was offer to share..."Who wants a popsicle?" The older children began naming the letters and the younger children began naming the colors. Disclosure: I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.

This would be a great product except there are only 13 sets of pops, rather than 26. Differing letters are printed on the back and front. For instance the red set has A and a on the front and N and n on the back. Very confusing for kids trying to learn letters. Visually its tough for them to locate a letter or figure out that they might have to turn over pops to locate the right letter match. They just scan and scan and scan the pile until they give up. Also, without the complete alphabet on 26 sets, I can't use this toy to teach children the order of the alphabet.

I am considering ordering a second set so I can have the whole alphabet, but only if I can figure out a way to remove the letters on one side of the pop. Maybe Nail Polish remover? Also, it feels just wrong to do this. It's like rewarding bad design....

If this product was complete, I would LOVE this toy and probably be buying a ton more of the smart snacks brand, but now I am afraid of what I might get.

Disappointed in packaging

By C. Davison

Comments about Learning Resources Smart Snacks Alpha Pops:

No where on the packaging does it say that this set is reversible. Packaging is misleading....you think that you're getting the entire alphabet on 26 popsicles not 13 popsicles.

    Comments about Learning Resources Smart Snacks Alpha Pops:

    I purchased Smart Snacks Number Pops and Smart Snacks Alpha Pops. Then I use a large colorful box to separate the Ice-cream numbers and the alpha Popsicle. Next, I set-up a starting line for the kids at one end of the room and the box at the other. The kids race to the box to match either the dots and cover on the ice-cream or the capitol and small letters on the Popsicle, then race back to a table and place their matched item in their small bin. The child with the most correct matching items win! This is great for large and small motor skills, hand and eye coordination, visual, language skills, and it also promotes sharing and unity working together if someone else has your match. I love these toys and so do the kids. Thanks!!!!

    Great Learning Tool

    By Anna, mom of two toddlers

    from Cincinnati, OH

    Comments about Learning Resources Smart Snacks Alpha Pops:

    I bought this for my 2 yr old son to learn matching colors and upper/lower case alphabet letters. It is perfect. We ask him to find the "big H" and then he finds the matching "little h" either by color or name. He loves it. It also helps his fine motor by connecting the two pieces. I just wish I had purchased 2 since each set has 2 different letters on them. Also, they are really easy to clean, but you'll need a container/bag to store them in. We love this toy!

        Comments about Learning Resources Smart Snacks Alpha Pops:

        This product would be absolutely amazing except it was designed poorly. There is only 13 sets with half the alphabet on the front and half on the back. Plus an image showing more that two can be snapped together to form words which they can not do. I now have to purchase a second set just to be able to complete the alphabet.

            Disappointed with this item from Learning Resources, have always been pleased with products from this company and own many. Item was purchased at a store. Packaging does not describe that Popsicles are double sided with letters or how many items were in the package. Letter Q is printed upside down on our set. Definitely would not recommend this product to others. It is a shame because it is a great idea just poorly done, should have separate Popsicles for each letter and not be double sided. Had I read the website information I would not have purchased since they are double sided.
