The Fisher Price alphabet peek a blocks is a nice way to introduce the alphabet to your kid at home. Chances are though that at the time you introduce these to your children they will not be able to fully understand and learn from the toy blocks. It personally does not matter because these blocks, as long as they are played with, will be worth your money. The blocks are very soft, don't have sharp edges, and can easily be gripped by the child. My child likes to pick up a block and throw it a couple inches away, and likes to repeat this process. My child is not at an age where he can build anything with the blocks, just pick up and throw them. But with this set i am taking baby steps. Right now I am perfectly fine with him just chucking the blocks and experimenting around. Later I imagine he will do some light stacking, and later on I plan on using the blocks to teach the alphabets. The colors on the alphabet blocks are very beautiful and illustrated well. Fisher Price did a great job with these blocks.
We have had the Fisher Price Peek a Blocks Sing and Sounds Farm for almost 8 years now. We got it for our oldest, and he absolutely loved it. Each of our four kids have played with it over the years. They love the songs that it plays when they put the blocks in. They loved singing along to Old McDonald. Little kids love the spinning windmill, and that they can pull down the barn door to get the blocks out. The blocks that came with the toy were of farm animals, of course. The horse block was hard for little fingers to turn, but they loved the clicking sound when I would turn it for them. The duck block was easier for them to spin around. The pig block has always made us laugh, because there are little brown pellets in the block with the pig, and we could never tell if it was supposed to be dirt, mud, or something else from the pig. The duck in the egg block was always a favorite because it squeaked when little fingers pushed down on the button. Fisher Price makes toys that last, and this farm is no exception. It has lasted a long time, and it was definitely been a loved toy.
When I saw the Fisher Price Alphabet Peek A Blocks, I was so completely excited that the price tag didn't matter. I just had to have this toy. I imagined all the wonderful learning experiences I could have with my daughter by just playing with these blocks. I had it all planned out!
They were cute, they had the letter stamped on the front, and there was something on the inside that started with that letter, a lot of the blocks even moved, or made a bit of a sound when you would shake them. They all had interesting textures on the top/bottom. I was thrilled!
So, I get home and open the bag of blocks and my daughter wasn't impressed with the fact it had anything to do with the alphabet. She tried chewing on them (she was only about 10 months old), she tried stacking them (they don't stack as easily as typical alphabet blocks), she tried throwing them (they hurt more than regualr blocks). Anyway, after just a few short weeks, she was no longer interested in the blocks at all. The Fisher Price Alphabet Peek A Blocks were a zero for her.
I now have another child, who wasn't too interested in them at all, so we sold them at a garage sale.
