Who would love this: Young kids that want a little "companion" + parents looking for a visually appealing words/ alphabet learning tool
Thanks to Divisible by Zero , we recently discovered Flipsee from Mobi - a sturdy alphabet board that has quickly become our Little Missy’s trusted and faithful companion. Not only that it is visually-appealing with bright and attractive colours, Flipsee also incorporates tactile elements for sensory exploration and provides a creative way for alphabet learning!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Features 26 Alphabet Letters + Flaps - This azure blue alphabet board is a delightful friend to our three-year-old girl - it calms her on moody days, soothes her during restless moments, and brings smile to us all, day-to-day. The board features 26 alphabet letters in both upper and lower case, each with its own liftable flap that gives us a glimpse of animals/ objects associated with the letters. It reminds me of a cheeky game of Peek-a-Boo, and an adorable “lift-the-flap” book. I absolutely love the sensory silicone material of these 26 bright and colourful “windows”. I like the clever touches on the design that make the flaps really easy to be opened and closed by little hands.
(2) Letter & Word Correlation - Each flap, when lifted, reveals an animal that starts with the letter (“A” for “Alligator”, “B” for “Bear”, and “C” for “Camel” etc), with the name of the animals printed beneath the picture. Once the kids get familiar with the animals, they can take the challenge a step further by identifying the additional object in the picture that starts with the same letter, e.g. a “gorilla” strumming a “guitar”, a “hedgehog” with his “Hula Hoop”, and an “octopus” holding an “orange” etc. This is an awesome learning tool for object recognition, and letter / word correlation.
(3) Shape-Learning - At the reverse of the board are 8 colourful shapes, each labelled with the name of the shape (circle, square, triangle, hexagon, oval, rectangle, heart, and star). I love that each of the shape is surrounded by a unique pattern of raised border for an additional textural touch.
(4) Light Weight + Handle - The board is light weight and thoughtfully designed with an easy-to-hold handle. I also love the calming non-primary colours range of the flaps - fuchsia pink, light orange, soft lawn green, and sweet turquoise.
