That being said, I still think Letter Factory is the best one, followed by Words Factory. They just seem to really click with my son.
Phonics Farm is very similar in terms of the lesson being taught when compared to Letter Factory, but Phonics farm doesn't do as good of a job in my opinion. Both videos are aimed at teach children their letter sounds. The one advantage that Phonics farm does have is that it acknowledges both the short and long vowel sounds. There is also an actually point made about vowels which was nice.
All that being said, you probably won't be disappointed with many of the Leap Frog purchases. My son genuinely learns from them and enjoys them as well.
My 1.5-year-old is not interested in it at all but my 3-years-old loves watching it again and again. I think it is the mixture of animals talking and frequently breaking into song that makes this interesting to her. She doesn't remember all the letters but she is starting to associate each letter with a specific sound. Most important of all, I feel like she's watching something beneficial.
As for that classmate of my 3-year-old, he is so advanced in his phonics that he is already starting to read. For example, if I write the words "purple", "red", and "yellow" on a piece of paper, he can guess which word is which, by looking at the first letter of each word and sounding out its phonics. All due to this DVD.
My son just turned two. He is growing up in a Bi-Lingual family which can cause a delay in actual speaking of words (not speech recognition). So I purchased this DVD and others to replace the Pixar movies he spent time watching. I have to say they are a classroom @ home. He sits, transfixed and is attempting his best to speak what he hears & sees in Leapfrog's DVD's. When he knows a Leapfrog DVD is coming on, he rushes to 'his seat' to watch (bottle in hand). When it ends, he hands me the remote to re-start the DVD.
I would highly recommend these products.
