Editorial Reviews

Have fun learning word building, rhyming, vocabulary and more! LeapFrog characters spring to life in this engaging and educational DVD. Leap, Lily and Tad journey into the Word Factory, where the Word Whammer, Sticky-Ick-O-Rama, and more amazing machines take letters and make them into words! Humorous songs and an out-of-control word machine add to the fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Superb DVD! January 28, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My son was diagnosed with Pervasive Development Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified when he was 3. PDD-NOS is on the Autism spectrum, and children with this diagnosis often have developmental delays.

My son had a speech delay and other developmental delays. His speech is great now...no one can detect that he has this diagnosis. However, the delays have, understandably, affected his learning in some areas.

While his spatial skills have been way above average--as has his grasp of science (such as planets and their attributes)--he has resisted reading. He gets tired and frustrated.

Well, trying many approaches for helping him, I thought I'd take a chance and get the Talking Words Factory from Amazon.com, especially since the reviews were so good.

I am very, very pleased with this DVD! My son watches it quite often, and he's now reading books on his own. I can see a marked difference in a matter of WEEKS. Before, he had to think about how some of the letters sounded. Now, he rattles them off like a pro--as well as 3-letter words!

This DVD also teaches about vowels and consonants, so he's learning how the vowels are sticky like glue, holding words together (thanks to Professor Quigley's Sticky-Ick-O-Rama machine!). The Word Whammer machine shows children how to put the consonants and vowels together, and how they sound. I like the fact that they'll switch around the vowels with the same beginning and ending consonants, to highlight how a vowel sounds within a word.

Talking Words Factory also teaches rhyming, which is a bonus.

Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars NO More Arguing Over Which Movie To Watch! April 1, 2005
Format:DVD
I have never felt strong enough to actually take the time to write a review. I am a certified k-6 teacher who has told everyone I know about Leap Frog's 4 amazing movie and now I am telling you...

LF Letter Factory: This was the first (out of 4) Leap Frog Movie that my children watched. My 3 1/2 year old and 2 years 2 month old boys are allowed to watch 1 movie a day. Each Day they agreed, in excitement, to watched this movie. Under a week my 3 1/2 year old knew his letter sounds. He could sing the letter sound song almost as fast as he could sing the alphabet. After a week, he amazed us when he sat down on the ground and wrote out the entire alphabet like a 4th grader. Had NO idea he could write like this! Shortly thereafter, the 2 year old knew all his letter sounds and letter recognition.

Talking Words Factory: I was so impressed that I bought them the Talking Words Factory that 2nd week. I wasn't surprised that my 3 1/2 year old began to spell, writing, and sounding out 3 letter words. He told me all about how the vowels were all sticky and their job was to stick letters together to make words. He went around singing the vowel song.

My kids loved the videos so much that for 10 months...My son's (who used to play with Thomas the Trains and puppies) were obsessed with letters and words. They made their own letter and word factory machines out of their toys and tubs, drew each letter cartoon character, and sang the letter and vowel songs, and the older one wrote, yes wrote, many of his own homemade books.

Talking Word Factory 2: It doesn't stop there...They got the Talking Word Factory 2 and Math Circus when they came out this Christmas. In a couple of days, the now 4 year old, was telling me all about sh, ch, th, and other blends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great Leap Frog DVD!!! April 11, 2006
Format:DVD
My two year old had already mastered her letters and phonics thanks to the Letter Factory DVD and this just helped her put it all together. By age 2 1/2 she was reading, and now at almost 3 she reads books at the library around a 2nd to 3rd grade level! People are amazed! (actually, most don't even believe me until they see her do it!) I think this DVD is great and, although a bit oversimplified in some areas, is a great start to your childs education.

4.0 out of 5 stars A hit with my 3 &4 yr olds. December 13, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
My kids love this tape! I'm pleased with it's educational value. However, I think kids (at this age) are going to need to watch it repeatedly before much of the content sinks in. The whole word factory theme reminded me of Willy Wonkas' chocolate factory minus the fun realism. This cartoon is typical of Saturday morning cheesy animation. My kids certainly don't seem to care in the least. The story line focuses on Tad wanting to fill out a form to nominate his Dad as the best and he needs to learn how to spell the words he wishes to put on his form. The words that are covered are almost all basic and ryhming three letter ones. Words ending in "at", "in", "ig", "an", and "ad". Also, "st" is illustrated in "stop" and then in "best". Vowels are named and described as "sticky" letters which are the "glue" to hold other letters together to make words. I'm disappointed in the shallow and "un"-catchy jingles throughout the story line. A few well written lyrics with catchy jingles could have made this tape so much more enjoyable and memorable. My kids strong interest in this tape did make me go buy The Letter Factory. I like that these tapes are only 35 minutes long, it helps with (time) limit setting for TV viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT, MUST HAVE VIDEOS FOR ALL KIDS November 21, 2006
Format:DVD
I bought the Talking Words Factory on a whim and it ended up being the best video I have ever purchased. My daughter started watching it at 3 and after only viewing it about five times, she knew ALL of her letter sounds. She already knew her letters, but I was amazed at how fast she picked up the sounds. She is now 4 1/2 and her PK teacher told us she is at the top of the class for phonics knowledge. When I told her why, she wrote all the information down to pass onto other parents whose children are struggling.

Now, my 2-year old watches them and she only knows a few letters, but she knows almost ALL of her sounds when you ask her. That is impressive! After seeing the success with my kids, I bought them for my nieces, one of which was struggling with severe ADHD and classroom difficulty. She mastered sound and blending concepts that she could not master in the classroom and she now has a great phonetic background. I know she would not be where she is today if she didn't have these videos. I am a Speech-Language Pathologist and I highly recommend them to ALL my parents at school. I have also donated the Letter Factory to all of my kindergarten and PK classrooms. I know they will enjoy them as much as my kids did (and still do!).
