alphaTUB | The World’s First Dynamic Alphabet Peg Board

$30,650

217

alphaTUB is your child’s best friend. 

The patented and award-winning alphabet peg tool brings the letters of the alphabet to life unlike any tool the world has seen. Designed for more than just your preschooler in mind, each letter is represented with a range of symbols that are printed on interchangeable content sheets that slide into alphaTUB’s letter template. The more your child learns, the more content sheets you can customize for them to build on their knowledge.

Stimulating, delightful and educational, alphaTUB gives an upgrade to the previous static pegboard we’ve used for generations and allows preschoolers to learn faster and better, while expanding their creativity.

alphaTUB comes in two variations: 
The alphaTUB is made with child safe ABS-grade plastic and the alphaTUB Classic is made with the finest quality wood.

On average, a typical two year old knows around 100 words, but present-day wooden peg boards limit them to just 26. With alphaTUB, your child is immersed in a world of dynamic learning where they can create what the letters stand for as their vocabulary broadens and their creativity is unboxed.

Simply insert any original alphaTUB sheet into the TUB slot, and watch your child’s creativity take them in new directions. Traditional wooden peg boards can hold back the potential your child has, but alphaTUB is the only one that can truly bring color into their world and their imagination to life.

alphaTUB is the world’s first and only alphabet peg board with a one-of-a-kind design that empowers your child to associate symbols with anything they can imagine. It even allows parents to dynamically change the content so that “A” also represents ant, alligator, avocado, or even atom! We’ve taken a proven learning tool and created a toy that invites open-ended play and faster, better development for your child.

Our kids’ learning progress is a top priority, but sometimes life’s troubles get the better of us and it becomes hard to keep track. With the alphaTUB mobile app, you can not only keep track and share the learning progress of your child, but you can also create and download new graphics or sheets, and even share or sell your content on the TUB marketplace.

Your kids can even draw their own content sheets to learn and share with others. With the alphaTUB mobile app, the opportunities for creation are limitless for both you and your child.

                                      
                                 
                                     
   
       

Founded in May 2016, alphaTUB is made up of people dedicated to developing and producing children’s learning products. These products are designed to help children find new ways to learn throughout their growing cycle and create an everlasting bond with parents and teachers alike. After six years of extensive research, and winning the 2017 Edison Award for Innovation in The United States, the team is excited to introduce this dynamic and personalized language learning tool to children. alphaTUB is the winner of the Red Herring Asia 2017 Award in Manila and Red Herring Global 2017 Awards in Los Angeles. alphaTUB was chosen as a Jury Finalist in 2016 and again in 2017 for the CII Industrial Innovation Awards in India.

 
The very foundation of life and love fosters discovery, creativity and progress. alphaTUB is a story of love. The seeds of alphaTUB were sewn by the love of two sisters. It is a story of love, play and learning in the family. It is the story of two fearless fathers who became passionately in love with the dream of alphaTUB and made it come true. It's a story of the love of a patient wife and an ever-challenging beloved who inspired and marshaled to make alphaTUB a reality.
It's a story of the love of friends and family connecting. The refreshing, engaging and immersive world of alphaTUB is a ticket for everyone to relive their childhood. With alphaTUB, take a flight back to the wonderful fun filled days of your childhood. It’s another chance for you to revisit where it all began. Love. Play. Learn.

We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t purchase an alphaTUB, if you’re a supporter of alphaTUB, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of! Remember, every child deserves freedom & creativity and alphaTUB can help.

We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project, helping us unbox creativity, and contributing to the success of alphaTUB.

Risks and challenges

From the moment we first created this concept to development and testing the prototype with children, creating alphaTUB with the highest quality child safety standards has been a top priority for us, and we cannot be more thrilled to provide this product to you all. We’re raring to go and are excited to start manufacturing! However, just because this is our plan doesn’t mean it will be perfectly executed. We face potential risks, whether it’s with scheduling, production delays, or something completely unexpected. If any of this happens, don’t worry-- we will be sure to reach out to all of you immediately with information to keep you in the loop.

You will be the first to know if anything arises that will affect our ability to give you an alphaTUB on schedule. We would be nowhere without you all, and we cannot be more grateful for your support. Be on the lookout for updates from us!
