The Appy Alphabet, from Kidz Delight, will help kids ages 2 and up learn the alphabet and phonics. The realistically-styled keyboard is bilingual in English and Spanish and features two modes of play. In standalone mode, kids can choose from five games that help them learn letter names, letter sounds, and first words. In app mode, the handle can be unplugged and converted into a stand for a smart device, including most tablets and smartphones. Once the smart device is inserted, kids can press any key on the keyboard and watch animations appear on the screen while learning about educational facts and spelling.

For those times we cannot be there to tuck our kids in at night, recordable books can be a great way to allow parents and other family members to still be part of a child’s bed time story routine.
Available in 2 versions, the AnyBook reader, from Franklin Electronics, allows users to record their voice to “any book” in a personal library. The device is targeted to children ages 3 and up, and does not require any additional software. AnyBook’s electronic stickers can also help bring a personal touch to the bedtime story experience.
