Alphabeasts Review

 The Alphabeasts are super-friendly characters that possess special powers. These incredible powers help the beasts work together to solve any problem on their exciting adventures. Always doing what is right, the Alphabeasts are giving and courteous, and they love to watch out for each other. 

Why do the Alphabeasts have letters on their bodies?These adventurous guys and girls have a letter of the alphabet right on their body that comes in handy when given a problem to solve or a duty to accomplish. No task is too small for the clan, and with the help of their most magical power…the ability to come together and spell words with their letters…they can get out of any jam or overcome any obstacle!Where do the Alphabeasts live?Not only do the Alphabeasts watch over each other, but they also keep a watchful eye on their home, Alphaland. Alphaland is a far away place that’s full of wonderment. Flowing blue rivers, green plants, tall trees, vast mountains, dewy meadows and a bright shining yellow sun are just some of Alphaland’s appeal. There’s one particular, massive tree in the center of Alphaland that stands high above the rest; a gigantic, strong and healthy tree that towers over the land. Little huts inside this tree are where our 26 beasts emerge from in the morning to start their day, and where they rest their heads at night after their adventures.What do the Alphabeasts do?Each day the Alphabeasts rise and shine to a new day, and set out on an adventurous journey that leads them through different parts of their homeland. Exploring nature and all the interesting places Alphaland has to offer, the beasts could be in search of food, a new place to play or teaching the sites and sounds they see and hear around Alphaland to the younger beasts in the family. And if they come across a problem to solve, then they jump to action with their special powers!Each Alphabeast has a unique gift. Some are strong. Some are swimmers. Some can soar. Some are speedy. And each duty or problem that they encounter and need to solve calls for a different solution, so it’s very important that the Alphabeasts work together as a team not only with their special abilities, but also by coming together to spell words with their letters. Whenever they spell a word, the word comes true! 

Alphabeasts are adorable little beast stuffed animals that have letters on them. Each side is different color, and there is a capital letter on one side, and a lower case on the other. I thought about what letters to get, should I try to make a word, or the first letter of the kids first names, or let them choose... in the end I let them choose, and  each child choose a different Alphabeast.
H chose-

L chose-
Zipperzoom ZZZZ
ZipperZoom who is purple and pink

and Z chose-
Wombat WWWW
Wombat who is Blue and Orange.

Each Plush is priced at $20.00 which I think is a bit much, they are not made the best,  H has had hers for about 3 weeks now, and I already had to sew up 2 holes in it. I would be less them pleased to spend that much for something that doesn't appear very durable. Now they are adorable and really help to tech the children their letters, I just could never see spending over $500 to do that.  

I do think the book set is a little more reasonably priced, at $20.00 for 26 books although not currently available, I think it will be worth ordering.
