Review

Teachers Picks - Best for Learning Sight Words --Scholastic Instructor Magazine

It's really refreshing to encounter something that gets tangible results: 'Meet the Letters' combines a basic need (learning the alphabet) with a tried-and-true method (repetition), all while keeping Junior entertained... we give it an A. --Entertainment Weekly

The basic approach of seeing, hearing and repeating is given a fresh look that makes learning easy for pre-readers and struggling beginning readers. A must-have for every collection for young children. --School Library Journal

We bought all 7 Preschool Prep DVDs based upon the high Amazon ratings. Our 19 month old son seemed to enjoy the colors video, and picked up a few words from the sight words 1 program. He had no interest in the other programs whatsoever.

We have other educational video packs, and would recommend the Leapfrog DVD sets instead. Our son seems to enjoy them much more.

Let me first start out by saying that I am a teacher - I really value any educational toys or learning activities. I wanted to get a few educational DVD's for our car for my son to watch on longer trips. I was excited after reading about the awards this series received in a parent magazine. I popped in the first DVD and waited for my son to be "ooh-ed and ahh-ed" - after about 5 minutes, he no longer wanted to watch it. I brought the DVD's in the house and sat down to see what they were all about. I was shocked at how horrible they are, the graphics are very low budget, the character talks in a very high and hard to understand voice, and ther is no story/plot...the "characters" just move across the screen and repeat their letter over and over. No wonder he did not want to watch it. I thought maybe the letter one is just too basic, so I popped open the sight words DVD - same horrible experience, only the character repeats the word over and over. It is not educationally sound AT ALL, I think they must have made up the award they received. :) I thought maybe I was missing something so I took the DVD set over to a friend of mine who is also an elementary reading specialist, she agreed that they were horrible and was shocked they cost $50+ dollars for the set. She also said that they do not even follow the protocal of how letters are introduced and the foundations of phonemic awareness to teach phonics or sound. She said you are much better off with the Sesame Street or the Leapfrog learning DVD's. Amazon was great for letting me return this horrible series....we orded the entire Leapfrog learning DVD set when my son was almost 3 and he still loves this DVD's (and asks for them) at 4.5 years. Don't waste your money.

I was a bit apprehensive about purchasing these as other reviews stated the videos were SO boring and therefor failed to keep their little one's attention. As one reviewer pointed out, what is boring to an adult isn't always so for a child, so I figured I'd give it a try. BIG MISTAKE. I bought the 4 disk pack and I'm really kicking myself because after popping in the "Meet the Letter's' DVD we only made it to the letter D before the kids were over it. Literally, there is nothing more to this DVD then that they flash the letter on the screen--and then say the letter over and over. You might as well go get yourself a set of flash cards and use those with the kids--its essentially the same as this DVD.

We have Leapster's Letter Factory and both my boys LOVE it. Now I'm wondering what I'm going to do with 4 worthless disks that aren't going to be watched and that got a total play time of 7 minutes. ;/ VERY dissatisfied, what a waste of money. ;(

I was sorely disappointed in this dvd set. My (almost) 3 year old thought that it was very boring, and didn't sit through any of them. My ten month old couldn't have cared less. I sent it back and got the my baby can read series and everyone is loving them. Don't waste your money.....

These dvd's are very boring for my child. She walks out of the room every time I put one of these dvd's on. It's just repetitive, there's nothing fun or interesting in learning with these dvd's. I wish I wouldn't have wasted my money on these. :(

I got this set for my 10 month old. It is terrible. It repeats the color, shape or number over and over but doesn't say anything else. For example the colors start off with blue and for several minutes it just says blue over and over and over.

My boys (3 & 5) were so excited to turn on this new dvd. After 10 minutes (a slow and grueling 10 minutes) we ALL wanted to turn it off. So boring. There is nothing to captivate my children or keep their attention. Pure boring, slow repetition.

This stuff is not only annoying, it is absolutely terrible. During the whole time you'd hear:

"Yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow, ..." until you'd either turn off the TV or become a brain dead. (Yellow gets substituted with other colors, or shapes, or numbers, or whatever, based on the DVD theme.)

The reason I bought this stuff - it was suggested by Amazon after I bought Leapfrog's "Letter Factory", "Math" and 3 other DVDs. They are absolutely not comparable. I had a great experience with Leapfrog and was very-very happy with their DVDs. Don't waste your money and don't torture yourself and your kids - buy Leapfrog's DVDs instead - kids will learn faster and in much smarter way.
