My son was given this DVD as a gift. He is 2 and is Autistic. His only form of communication is echolaic words and phrases. He has watched it once a week or so for the last 3 months and now can recite the phonic sounds of the letter a-z! He can also tell me some of the words beginning with each letter.
In my opinion this DVD is fantastic. It is fairly dated in terms of the cartoon visuals, but the friendly voice I knew from the Mr.Men of old, is great.
The graphics for the letters and words are clear and in lower case, I think these graphics are the main appeal for my son. You'll know about this if your child is fixated with programme titles!
As the letters are phonically sounded and the letters are in lower case, I think this is one of the best DVDs of it's type.
