If you are reading this, chances are you are at your wit’s end, having endured countless hours of pointing at dogs, cats, balls, trying to get your child to recognize letters. You put on your happy face, and spoke in your super excited voice, but still your child was not having it.
Well this is exactly what happened to me. I had book shelves overflowing with board books illustrated with cars, trucks, and bouncing balls, the words in bold colored letters. I’d sit to read these with my son, “Look Xander, it’s a Ball, b, b, b ball!” Before I could get him to even look my way, he was onto the next activity, which was most likely jumping on the bed. Even more frustrating? I am an elementary school teacher with a masters degree in curriculum and instruction, so this should have been a piece of cake for me! To say I was frustrated is a complete understatement.
One day the following transpired in my kitchen: Xander, my son farted, big and loud. “Xander, you farted, F is for Fart!” And he lost it in a fit of giggles. I actually had his attention. We went on from there, creating more and more funny words to go along with the letters, and that’s when He’s All Boy Alpha Cards: ABC Flash Cards were born, literally from my son’s stinky, loud fart!
Our collection of learning tools continues to grow and now includes: Alpha Cards: ABC Flash Cards, Alpha Cards: Alphabet Memory Matching Game and 3 Board Books!
At He’s All Boy, our goal is to engage boys in the learning process through laughter and play.

Our products jump outside of the box and land in the imaginative and often stinky world of little boys.
