Editorial Reviews

Help Lily, Tad, and Scout find the letters to start the fun at the amusement park! When their firefly friend, Edison, takes Tad, Lily and Scout to the place of his childhood dreams, the gang is shocked to discover that Alistair Alphabelly's Amazing Amusement Park is... closed! To make matters worse, Edison has gotten himself stuck atop the Amazing Alphabet Ferris Wheel. The only way to save him is to turn on the rides in the park with the magic of the alphabet. Now the children must learn all of the letters, big and small, to save their friend, save the day and perhaps even meet the rhyme master himself, Alistair Alphabelly!

2.0 out of 5 stars needs improvement March 9, 2011
Format:DVD
Having taught Kindergarten for 9 years I can say that this video is cute but not as good as previous Leap Frog videos. The Letter Factory is a much better presentation of the letters with emphasis on letter sounds (needed to learn to read) vs. letter names. If you buy only one leap frog video I would recommend the Letter Factory video.

4.0 out of 5 stars Done Well, But Feels Familiar January 19, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Along with LeapFrog: Numbers Ahoy, "The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park" is the newest release in the LeapFrog DVD series. It features the new design first seen in LeapFrog: Let's Go to School and also introduces a new character, Scout, who LeapFrog fans might be familiar with if they own, or know of LeapFrog My Pal Scout.

Like most LeapFrog releases, this is done well. Scout is a fun addition to the series, though if you were expecting him to talk, forget it. He is Lily and Tad's pet dog through and through and he communicates through barking, yipping and body language. But he is a curious and also mischievous little scamp and adds a lot of entertainment value. The animation is fun to watch, the educational content is strong and the songs are generally fun and catchy.

In this adventure, Tad and Lily find themselves in a bit of a jam when Scout snatches letters from around town and buries them in their yard. They want to return the letters to their owners, but they don't know which is which. Edison, the firefly, offers to take them on the Learning Path to the Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park. But a cotton candy mishap causes Edison to get stuck to a ferris wheel. The rides at the park are all powered down and Lily & Tad must learn to recognize letter shapes, both uppercase and lowercase, in order to power them back up. They also learn about rhyming.

If some of this feels familiar, it is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, But a Bit Disappointing February 25, 2011
Format:DVD
I was delighted to find this and other Leap Frog videos available on instant play from **the popular DVD rental/streaming video company** to which we subscribe. My 4.5 yr. old and I watched The Amazing Alphabet Amusement Park today and I found the video to be disappointing. As an elementary teacher, I have to say that the original Letter Factory is so much more effective for teaching letters/sounds. The most disappointing part of this video was that it doesn't teach letter sounds at all. It basically teaches two skills: letter recognition and rhyming. On a positive note, I thought the video did a good job of pointing out differences in letters that look similar (such as "i" and "j"). They also effectively presented both uppercase and lowercase letters simultaneously. Overall, this is a decent video for toddlers and younger preschoolers. But, if you're looking to make a purchase, I recommend buying the Letter Factory instead of this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as The Letter Factory February 9, 2012
Format:DVD
I was so excited to buy this at the store when it first came out. We already own "The Letter Factory" and "The Talking Words Factory", but we had never seen this one, "The Amazing Alphabet" before. Oh my gosh, what a disappointment. Please don't waste your money on this one! This definitely goes into the category of "edutainment", meaning that there is too much cartoon and not enough learning. (On a side note, the music from this video sounds a little bit like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".)

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK January 22, 2011
Format:DVD
I think the first review gives a great summary of this DVD. I think this DVD is aimed at those that are somewhere between 18 months and 3 years of age (or any child that doesn't know their letters). This movie was quite boring for my 3.5 year old that knows all of his letters and their sounds. I thought it would be a fun alphabet refresher for him but it didn't work out that way. It did talk a bit about the concept of rhyming but I'm pretty sure that will go right over the heads of the ones that will actually enjoy this DVD.

I think Leap Frog could have done a better job than this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great content, Weird Singer February 16, 2011
Format:DVD
I loved that this video really teaches Big and Little letters, as the Letter Factory leapfrog movie doesn't. There was a lot of great repetition, and my 2yr old loves it. The cadence of the singing voice throughout most of the movie is kind of creepy sounding and strange to me. My son doesn't care though, and it's not too weird to watch. He likes the dog and calls out the letters with the narrator/singer. Definitely worth buying, and seems right at a very early alphabet learners level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie February 15, 2011
By Laura
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My 3 year old loves this movie. She has known her letters for a while but she still really likes the show. I like that it shows her both the Capital (Big) letter and the lowercase (small) letter. In my experience most preschools, daycare's, etc. only teach them the capital letter. I highly recommend this product.
