Letter Factory Phonics
The 26 singing letter tiles bring the alphabet to life! view larger

LeapFrog Letter Factory Phonics

The LeapFrog Letter Factory Phonics teaches letter names and sounds in a fun, interactive way. Appropriate for children who are at least 2 years old, this learning toy lets little learners place the 26 letter tiles of the alphabet in the factory to hear songs that teach the corresponding letter names and sounds. With its tactile play, amusing songs, and convenient portability, the Letter Factory Phonics provides an engaging way for your child to build early literacy skills at home or while travelling.

Musical tiles talk, teach, and sing

Based on the award-winning Letter Factory DVDs (sold separately), Letter Factory Phonics introduces children to the alphabet through the Alphabet Song and hands-on play. When children insert one of the 26 letter tiles into the battery-powered Letter Factory reader and press it into place, the unit plays a song about the letter and sound. Moving the letters into and out of the reader not only helps children learn their ABCs, but also helps develop fine motor skills.

An additional button atop the unit allows children to hear the Alphabet Song, reinforcing what they've learned. For added convenience, a sliding switch allows the user to set the volume to the desired high, low, or off setting. The Letter Factory Phonics will automatically shut off after 15 seconds of inactivity to conserve battery power.

Designed for easy portability and storage

The compact size of the Letter Factory Phonics makes it ideal for home use, at school, or on the road. The lightweight, detachable Letter Factory reader sits snugly atop a plastic pail that doubles as a storage unit for the 26 letter tiles. For easy transport, the pail has a bright yellow handle printed with the letters of the alphabet.

Singing letters bring the alphabet to life

Using the Letter Factory Phonics is a fun and simple way for children to learn the alphabet. Children as young as 2 years old should have no problem placing the letter tiles into the factory and pressing the button for play. While children will enjoy the playful songs and phonics, parents will appreciate the unit's portable, storage-friendly design.

I have a four year old who has been learning phonics at nursery since she was 9 months old.

I bought this for my 1 year old daughter who is in the early stages of learning phonics.

It's a really good toy! Really clever in that you put a letter in the top and it will do the little song pertaining to that letter. Plus all the letters store inside the storage box bit.

It also has an alphabet song which you can play at any time.

Both my girls in fact love it.

I do like the fact that the voice is a UK English accent as opposed to American. One negative point is that during the song, some of the letters are not clear in the rhyme. In fact 'V' often sounds a bit like 'P' - so much so that I had to re-listen to it several times. So that bit could have been clearer.

The only other negative is that the carry handle is a bit odd - once it's upright to the carrying position, there isn't much room to get your fingers underneath but maybe my children should be carrying it (with their minuscule fingers) not me?!

I do generally love this toy. Would have given it a 4.5 if I could!

This was purchased for my nearly 2 year old, who is going through an alphabet obsession.

The toy sings the alphabet song in a way which is well enunciated and clear (if a little slow). It uses English pronunciation so there is no requirement for me to heartily join in, yelling "zed!" over "zee" as I've had to with a number of other songs.

Letter blocks are slotted into the top of the lid, and the name of the letter is sung along with its phonetic pronunciation(s). This brings me to my only criticism of the toy - that a couple of the phonetic pronunciations aren't clear because of the quality of the speaker - "C" is a good example of this. It's not enough of a factor to destroy the entertainment or educational value of the toy, though.

I really like the fact that it comes with 2 volume settings, and the quietest setting is actually quite pleasant and non-intrusive.

The toy packs away neatly with all of the letters fitting well into the bucket, and it's small enough to fit in a corner of a toy box.

Does what it says on the tin. Very pleased, got it at a good price. My 2yo is interested in it, likes putting the letters in to get the noises and I'm sure it will aid learning.

My little girl loves these, I've also bought the magnetic ones with a bus.
To be honest, it would be better if these were also magnetic (they are the same, just the others have a magnetic backing on them) but I guess then they'd not be able to sell us both sets.
