    As a primary school teacher I am often sceptical about electronic phonic games as they are often phonically incorrect or have phonic 'flaws', however I bought this for my 'just' four year old and he loves it! It is phonically correct and it reads 2 letters as one sound when they make one sound for example e and a as 'ee' when in the word 'sea'. It uses letter names as well as sounds (something which is now mentioned within the new early years framework) and encourages children to play around with the words to make new ones, so good for pre-school children who may have only just started to be interested in letters.

    The only reason it has lost a star is because for me it could reinforce the letter sounds a bit more though I guess that's me being a picky teacher! Definitely a toy that you will enjoy helping your child to use - particularly if you have no idea how to help to introduce your child to words and letters. It doesn't have to be on the fridge - works just as well on the table. As I mentioned definitely one of the best phonic/word games for 3+yr olds I have seen and it is a very reasonable price.

    My son loves this. He has been very slow in his reading ability and this was great fun for him to use. It still stays on the fridge door and all the children use it to make words. The older ones try words like 'poo' - which it does not understand and gets them to try again! They all think it very funny - and it helps with the learning I suppose! The different levels are great for moving on. Good value for money.

    Brought this for my son (3yrs old) as he was starting to show an interest in letters and I wanted to give him something that starts to develop that interest. It is slowly working. He likes placing letters into the plane and once he gets a word right (the machine reads it out to him with congratulations), I suggest replacing one of the letters. He likes this as he gets another one right!
    No problems with the product. It's robust and sticks to my fridge just fine.

    My two yr old loves this!
    Sings along with the abc song and enjoys trying to make 'words'
    it doesn't really matter if they aren't real words it still makes comments like 'great sounds' and plays little tunes.
    Great fun.
    Have bought it again as a birthday present for a 3 yr old who enjoyed playing with it when visiting :-)

    On the whole I am very impressed with this. My daughter has just started school (she is 4) and is currently working on her phonics. The only thing I would say that is negative is the sound is not particularly clear and you can only turn it up slightly, which means some of the letters are difficult to understand.

    I bought this for my son. I have the first Fridge phonic, so I wanted to get this one to help his reading along.
    I love the idea and know that it works.
    The only downsides to this product are that there are lots of letters that tend to go walkies when young kids are around and so, if you loose a vowel, it's game over!!! Also , even though the machine will sound out all letters, the machine does not recognise all three letter words, like my son's name for example!!! I suppose you can't have everything!!!

    I bought this for my three and a half year old son, who is learning about letter sounds at pre-school.

    I wanted something which reinforced what he was learning and I wasn't disappointed. This toy gives the sounds and names of the letters when you put them in.

    A slight problem I have found is that my son wants to create words already and he expects there to be a word when he puts 'in any 3 letters' as it asks him to do. We get around this by limiting the number of letters on the fridge at any one time and explaining that for now he needs a red letter in the middle.

    The toy is robust and sticks well to our fridge.

    My daughter really enjoyed the farmyard version of this set when she was younger and so as she was showing an interest in letters we thought we would progress onto the phonics version.
    When we unpacked the letters I was suprised how much space they took up (almost covered our fridge door!) so we then put the base unit onto the freezer next to it so that it was at a height that she could see. Unfortunately the unit is quite heavy and on our fridge it started to slowly slip down the door. Once it had 3 letter tiles in it picked up speed and ended up at the bottom!
    This may not be the same with all fridges but it is no use on ours and we have resigned ourselves to the fact that it will now have to be a table top game. The reason we chose this was BECAUSE of the magnetic element - tidy & always around and visible ready for play.
    Fun and durable as a phonics word building game in its own right but 'doesn't do all it says on the tin'!
