Meet Alphie, the alphabet baby, who teaches children about words, letters, and object association through curious exploration on this simple, interactive online toy. All that is needed is a recent Flash player that is free to download and a child that likes to laugh. When a letter is pressed on the keyboard or clicked on the screen, a word appears with sound and short animation plays. Alphie discovers gravity on the letter A and attains enlightenment on the letter Z, while exercising, recycling and conserving water in between. There are many funny mishaps along the way too.
