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!

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.

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.

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.

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".)

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.

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.

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.

This video is pretty boring. The value of the previous leapfrog phonics videos were the catchy songs. You could sing the song from the letter factory and know the sounds all the letters make. The song in this video is boring and repetitive. The song is easily forgettable and teaches nothing. Without the visual of the video there is no knowledge remaining with "Big A little A" and so on and so forth repeated.

This video makes zero sense in the context of the previous videos. In this video Tad and Lily are twins. In previous videos it seems apparent that Lily is older. I understand that they did this to make the concept appealing to both genders. In the end they ended up muddying the waters and making this a very dull video that makes zero sense when combined with the previous letter factory videos; LeapFrog: Letter FactoryLeapFrog: Talking Words Factory

Skip this video and just stick to the letter factory videos. There is no knowledge to be gleaned from this video, the songs are dull and repetitive, and the plot is weak at best.
