The Smart Snacks Alpha Pops is a simple toy that has provided me with a way to sneak some preschool skills practice in with my 3-year old son, who happens to be highly motivated by anything food related. We have been using this toy as a way to practice letter recognition, letter-sound recognition, and matching uppercase with lowercase letters. These are skills that he needs continued practice with, but he's grown tired of the 'old toys' in the playroom. Although he often avoids most alphabet-work games, he is more than willing to go find the "other B popsicle" or the "popsicle that says b-b-b" as long as we follow it up with some pretend eating of the popsicles too!

This toy is great for anyone who has a toddler hesitant to engage in language skills practice.
