Not what we expected. Very boring and disappointing!

"We were disappointed with this. We were waiting for them to tackle up the whole alphabet in the movie....but to no avail. My son was not even thrilled with the movie itself (compared to their 123). He looks bored and does a lot of yawning to this. He'd ask for his WTP 123 instead. They just touched on very few letters, which doesn't even emphasize on them well. The Leap Frog Letter Factory is so much better. I would not recommend this especially for beginners. They might think that's all what the alphabet is about. Don't get this. Get the Leap Frog's version instead. But if your child adores Winnie the Pooh so much, get the 123 instead. A 3-star for some great credits like the animations & sounds."

"I bought this video for my 2 1/2 year old because he is very interested in the alphabet. The dvd was a huge disappointment because it didn't deal with letters but focused on rhyming words, etc. Not suitable for my son's age, boring and short. They sing a 60 second song with the alphabet that is an extra feature and that was the only thing he liked. Not a good buy."
If You Want More Letters, Get the DVD Version

""Winnie the Pooh ABC's" is an original Winnie the Pooh story designed to teach rhyming, words and letters. Rather than straight, rote learning, this is presented in the form of a half-hour adventure. Things all get started when Christopher Robin introduces Pooh to a book of rhymes about the characters in the Hundred Acre Woods. Christopher Robin lets Pooh borrow the book and soon Pooh and all of his friends are learning about rhymes, words, reading and the alphabet, with some help from wise old Owl.
One of the major complaints about this movie seems to be that it only introduces a few letters. If this is a concern for you or your child, then I recommend making sure you get the DVD version and not the video. It has a wonderful special feature that goes through the alphabet thoroughly, having the characters teach each letter in both upper and lower-case and associated words. Adults will probably get bored with this pretty quickly, but it'll be dead useful for your kid(s). There's also an ABC song with scenes from "The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" that's quite worthwhile.
Overall, if you want your kids to learn the alphabet, or just wanna see another good Pooh story, I'd say you can't go wrong with this, especially if you get the DVD version. Also included on the DVD version is a Fast-Play option and previews for movies such as "Mulan II" and "Pooh's Heffalump Movie," as well as the original trailer both this and the 123s video / DVD.
