Jump into a world of music, movement, and reading readiness with this colorful, talking mat from Learning Resources. With four fun modes and two levels of play, the mat helps teach preschoolers basic language skills like letter recognition, sounds, even spelling. Encouraged by the enthusiastic voice of Alpha-Bug, kids get moving as they explore the land of language arts through the letters displayed on Alpha-Bug’s inchworm-like body. With the help of the electronic console, kids can control the mode, level of skill, and volume. For an educational change of pace, little ones can tap out tunes in Music mode. Winner of a Creative Child Magazine Top Creative Toy award, the Alpha-Bug Step ‘N’ Spell offers a wonderful introduction to early language skills and encourages interactive play. Designed to withstand marching, dancing, and jumping, this durable mat features an easy-clean vinyl surface and a carry handle for trouble-free transport. Generously sized to fit little feet and hands, the mat measures a roomy 60 by 20 inches. The Alpha-Bug Step ‘N’ Spell requires three AA batteries (not included) and folds for easy storage when not in use.
