When we opened it, we immediately called it 'her abc's' and she cottoned onto that straight away.
We took out the main unit and put it straight on the fridge, then we stuck all the letters onto the fridge. We then showed her how to put the letters in by herself - they just need to sit a certain way up in the unit - very easy for small and patient hands. Then she presses the letter in and it sounds a little song 'a says a, a says a, every letter makes a sound, a says a'.
There is another button on the unit which when pressed sings the whole alphabet - it says 'zed' instead of 'zee' which is nice too!
Within a few weeks she was able to copy the song, and a few weeks later could pre-empt the sounds and started distinguishing between the different letter sounds.
I also said that my sister needed to join in with singing to give my niece the confidence in herself and as my sister spends a lot of time in the kitchen this is a perfect way for them to interact in a pleasant and educational way.
A very good buy, would recommend to anyone!
