5.0 out of 5 stars If you're looking for a gift, this one gets 5-stars across the board - Great Alphabet learning tool, May 22, 2012

This review is from: LeapFrog Lettersaurus (Toy)
This was a gift from an aunt for a 2-year old. The challenge was, our daughter loves dinosaurs but it's very difficult to find one that's not scary (big teeth, etc).

But this is also a great educational tool, and helping our 2-year-old learn the alphabet. This would definitely be appropriate for a 1-year-old, especially if they like pushing buttons. And hopefully they would grow into the phonics/alphabet educational components (which are really geared for 24-36 months).

The dinosaur features the alphabet song (when you touch the head), and it has alphabet buttons along the back & tail to help you learn all the letters & has corresponding songs. Even if your child is too young for the alphabet, the songs are fun to dance to, and it's not too loud or obnoxious. After birthday parties a lot of parents get stuck with LOUD obnoxious toys - it's kindof a joke among parents, that the friends & grandparents don't actually have to live with these toys! But not to worry - this one has a volume control, and even turned all the way up it's pleasant, upbeat, fairly soft music.

Additionally, this is very durable - it's been dropped many times and still looks & plays like brand new. And the battery life is excellent.

Only two complaints: First the songs are a little fast - wish they were just 10 or 20% slower so the child could follow along a little easier. Second, the dinosaur only sings the alphabet song - the other 26 songs (one for each letter) are just music, no lyrics. Someone really has to be there to teach the child the words to the song.

Bottom Line: An excellent product from Leapfrog, great value for the price (currently $14 on Amazon), great gift idea for 12-36 months. I rarely give 5-stars for kids toys, but this one gets 5-stars across the board.
