Parents and grandparents are always on the look out for toys that are fun, engaging, and educational. Kids learn through play, and the Creative Baby activity flashcards and voice pen make learning a lot of fun for toddlers and preschoolers.
For our review we received the Creative Baby interactive Voice Pen, Alphabet activity cards, Under the Sea activity cards, and My Animal World activity cards. Each pack of cards comes with around 50 high quality cards with colorful pictures and/or photos. There are also 2 Language/Game cards in the Under the Sea and My Animal World cards. Your child can learn in either English, Spanish, or Chinese, and interact with the games.
The voice pen is activated simply by touching the end of the pen to the flashcard. Children can learn the alphabet with the alphabet activity cards. When the pen touches the 'L' flashcard, it will audibly say "L is for Lion," and it will also say how the letter phonetically sounds.
The Under the Sea cards have pictures of sea creatures and a sentence written on the back that teaches kids a fact about the creature. For example, when the pen touches the swordfish card it will audibly say, "The swordfish is fast and hard to catch". When the pen is in "game" mode it will ask the child questions like "Which animal is fast and hard to catch?" or "Find the swordfish." The My Animal World flashcards help children learn names of animals from all over the world. The cards have clip-art style pictures of animals, as well as actual photos.
One more fun feature of the Creative Baby Voice Pen is that it doubles as a music player. This is actually my daughter's favorite feature, because she enjoys anything that involves song or dance! By pressing the green arrow buttons on the pen, she can scroll through a number of sweet nursery rhymes like "Mary Had a Little Lamb". It's her personal music player that she dances around the house with.
The pen has 2 different volume levels; the lower level is perfect for quiet settings at home and the louder level is ideal for noisier settings like in the car. These activity cards and voice pen are an excellent activity for our frequent 6-hour road trips to visit family!
