    My children are aged nearly 2, 4 and 6 years and they all love the Alligators and use them in different ways. The nearly 2 year old plays with them as 'just' alligators, he practices pulling them apart and pushing them back together, making up funny coloured versions or matching colours. My 4 year old matches the letters, colours and can recognise the letters from his name. My 6 year old can put them in alphabetical order. We have also made up our own game with the Alligators. Lots of fun to be had. Very well made and easy to store too.
    We were sent the Alligators for review purposes.

    The n is upside down

    Poorly made and check my photo. The n is upside down! (And no it's not the u, the other side matches Aa, and there is a different alligator with Uu)

    Comments about Learning Resources Snap n Learn® Alphabet Alligators:

    I just bought this at the MiAEYC early childhood conference for my classroom, and I was very excited for my 2.5yr olds to use this. The first child I show it to, gets to the letter K and tells me there isn't a K. And as we continue on through the alphabet, I notice there isn't an X either. Instead of those letter, I have 2 duplicates. Since I got this at a conference, I dont know how to go about trying to get the missing letters. The kids do love this product, but I'm not happy about what's missing.

          Bad paint job

          Comments about Learning Resources Snap n Learn® Alphabet Alligators:

          I like the idea of this toy and it is a cute design/concept. However, the quality of the paint is bad since it was coming off when it was fresh out of the container. I just hope the paint is not toxic as I'm sure it will continue to come off with use. The eyes were painted on poorly and there is excess paint on the snout and side of the head. One of the pieces has something broken inside so it shakes like a rattle. I just hope that the rubber does not come off so that piece won't fall out and my 2 year old swallow it.

          I have another product by this company and the paint job on it looks terrible as well. They may need better quality control.

          I agree with the review which mentioned it would have been better with 26 whole alligators instead of 13 with the other half of the alphabets printed on the other side.

                Comments about Learning Resources Snap n Learn® Alphabet Alligators:

                Pre-school has been a fun journey so far and my daughter comes up everyday talking about new things and of course a million questions. Her most recent question was the difference in lowercase and uppercase letters. I thought the Snap n Learn® Alphabet Alligatorsnofollow would be perfect to show her and help differentiate. She caught up pretty quick matching and creating all of the alligators. I liked that they were two sided and have a great container to store them in when not in use. Learning Resources is our go to learning toy line and we enjoy sharing their products with our readers. They have helped our daughter work on so many different learning tasks and overcome many obstacles from colors, letters, shapes and more. Their products are creative, effective and fun. A toddler wants to have fun and when they are having fun they are learning and taking in everything. Learning Resources allows for just that and i am pleased to recommend adding them to your holiday shopping list for the little learners in your life!

                • Only 13 Alligators Not 26

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Learning Resources Snap n Learn® Alphabet Alligators:

                  Adorable and easy to snap together, but packaging is a little mis-leading. On the packaging it states that there are 26 pieces...which leads one to believe that, since there are 26 letters in the alphabet, there are 26 pairs...which is not the case. There are 26 1/2 pieces, 13 whole alligators. Therefore, each alligator has one set of letters on his right side and a different set of letters on his left side. So, when the kiddos get to the 13th alligator (Mm), they have to backtrack to letter Z. It's confusing and a real disappointment to the little ones when they can't complete a line of alligators to the end of the alphabet. Great concept. Just need 13 more alligators so that all 26 alligators have the same letter on each side.

                    Comments about Learning Resources Snap n Learn® Alphabet Alligators:

                    There are 13 brightly colored alligators. Each alligator has a capital letter and a lowercase letter on either the head or tail section. Each alligator snaps together and apart easily. They are double sided so there is a letter on each side of the alligator. They can be used to match up the letters (capital to lowercase). They can also be used for color matching, fine motor skills, or making a pattern. They are made from a thick plastic. The small piece that is used for the alligators to attach to each other is surprisingly softer.

                    These are easy for my toddler to use. He mostly likes to put them together and take them apart. He has not gotten to the matching stage yet. I love the learning value of these fun alphabet alligators. They are colorful, fun, and interesting for my toddler. Even my 1st grader enjoys playing with them. I like that this comes with a reusable container to keep them all in. Makes it easier to keep them all together. The only thing I don't like is that they are double sided so there are only 13 with 2 letters for each. It would be nice if there were one for each letter. Although it would be more difficult to keep track of them all if there were more.

                    I was provided these in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and not influenced.
