Alphie was the best! My grandfather went to so many different stores to get me this toy for my birthday. I loved it!

When I was in first grade, from 1988-1989, I had an Alphie II, the white one and I would play with it when we had our play time. It was heaps of fun!

Ryan - April 04, 2008 - Report this comment
I used to be scared of this because of some of the sounds it made. I guess mother used to threaten to put Alphie on top of my closet if I was bad. (At night and where I couldn't reaach it)

Is it worth thousands? I have one in very good condition at 25yrs old. Without my knowledge my daughter put batteries in it,, I was cleaning on day and bump it. Needless to say when it came on, it scared the ^&$! outta me. I sat and played with it for an hour. Still have all the cards. Cool!
ceph - August 16, 2009 - Report this comment
I had an alphie when i was very little. Half the time (or more) that i had him he didnt have batteries, still one of my favorite toys ever though. In fact I loved him so much I named my old dog after him. :)

my neighbor gave hers to me. it weas the blue one. i used to carry it around with me were ever we went. dont know what happend to him.
Retronut - October 07, 2009 - Report this comment
I had the blue also. It nearly drove my parents insane because I played with it constantly. One night, my dad and I went somewhere and left my mom home alone. She usually got pretty nervous when left by herself. Unbeknownst to her, my Alphie robot was chucked into my toy box upside down. It slid down a little further, bumped into something else and punched the button on top of his head. The noise nearly caused my mom to have a heart attack.

I LOVED my Alphie, he was blue- exactly like this picture. I still have him in my Mum's garage. I remember trying to sleep with him when I was little- I just loved him so much. As an only child, he was my "friend." Definitely not a snuggle toy, though.

I am looking for one of these for my kids. I'm homeschooling and would love to find one. If you have yours still and it's in gerat condition let me know and how much you want for it. I'm trying to find all my old games (most I can't remember the names) because tehy were more educational I think. Anyway, if you have one you're willing to sell me shoot me an email THANKYOU EVERYONE!!!!

My dad co-invented Alphie - and I'm happy to report that Alphie is coming back! Hasbro has a new version of Alphie in its 2010 lineup at Toy Fair. My dad's gone now but he always said his goal was to "make the little children happy." Glad to hear he did!

Memories..yes I had a white Alphie II. I loved that thing. I am missing the back cover to it now. Do you think its worth anything? Not like I'd ever sell it, too many fun memories.

I loved this toy so much when I was a kid. I remember my mom had gotten it for Christmas one year. I've got it in the background of the Christmas picture. Now they have him back and I fully plan on getting it for my daughter for Christmas!

I loved my early eighties blue Alphie. I'm so excited he's back, I hope he's as much fun. I especially remember the little yellow and green robots that fit into his clamp hands. I hope my son enjoys the current Alphie.

I just saw an ad for Alphie and was like, "I remember having that!!!" It's great, with all the technological wonders out there, that they still brought back a classic toy like Alphie.

A few weeks ago I was talking about my Alphie with my mom. It was the coolest toy and I absolutely loved it. I saw the ad for the new Alphie and picked it up last weekend for my son. He is a little young yet but I just might have to open it!

Guys, they have these at Wal-Mart for $34. Go out and buy one. Now. As a huge geek and robot lover, I just bought one for my little girl, who also loves robots. I hope she likes it!

Got the new one for my daughter. When my sister and I saw it on the shelf, we squealed with excitement! Most played with toy so far. Like. constantly! It's not the same as when we were little. but close enough. Updated a bit, and no buttons on the bottom. Awesome toy!

Allison - February 13, 2011 - Report this comment
I didn't have an Alfie when I was a kid, but my neighbor/friend did and I loved playing with him. I had no idea they brought him back until I had taken my son to the store to pick out a potty training treat. Usually I get him a car or two (costing a measly $1-2), but when I saw the way his eyes lit up when we were playing with Alfie, there was no way I could leave him at the store. We got him two days ago, huge incentive for my son to continue his good potty usage. He totes this toy around like it's his new best friend (he has even ditched his teddy bear, which breaks my heart a little), he has introduced him to his old toys and we have had no potty accidents since I bought Alfie! This is a great toy, I'm so glad they brought him back.

One of my best friends had Alphie. Whenever I'd go to her house all I wanted to do is play with him. She would get sooo bored. She always had the toys I never got and vise versa.
