Not What I Thought...

"They are excellent DVD's 5 star in fact BUT I really thought that the ABC's DVD would atleast cover the entire alphabet. It basically covers the letters which begin with the characters names only. I was a little disappointed but better then any other DVD where they learn ZIP. (...)"
Great Learning Tool!

"This 2-DVD set is a great way to teach your child numbers and letters.
The ABC DVD teaches kids not just to recognize letters of the alphabet but also how to write them. Previous commenters have indicated that it doesn't include all letters of the alphabet, but that isn't true. The story part of the DVD only focuses on selected letters, but the two activities in the Bonus Features include the entire alphabet.
The 123 DVD teaches kids to recognize numbers and to count up to 10 things. There's a great Counting Butterflies game in the Bonus Features. My 3 1/2 year-old son will play that game by himself, and I was surprised that he can actually identify a group of 10 things at his age. (Conventional wisdom says kids can only count a number of objects equal to their age.)
My son likes to watch the DVDs with a corresponding hands-on learning tool. For example, when he's watching the ABC DVD, he likes to have his wooden alphabet puzzle, so he can compare the letters. When he's watching the 123 DVD, he likes to have his number flashcards.
This is a great guilt-free way to buy yourself an hour of quiet time. My son asks to watch these DVD every single day. In the couple months that he's been watching them, he's learned to write almost every letter of the alphabet. (He already knew his letters, just not how to write them.) And, as I said, his counting skills are much-improved. These DVDs are great!"

"My 3 year old daughter loves both of these DVD's. After watching them 2-3 times she was counting everything that she could and writing the letters discussed in the DVD's. I wish that they would make another covering the other letters in the alphabet. I highly recommend these."
Nice package that includes extra flash cards

"The 2 DVD's come in their own box which also includes numbers and letter flash cards. I found that the ABC video was more about rhyming and beginning reading than about learning your ABC's. The kids love it just like any other Winnie the Pooh video but the included flash cards are very good and more helpful for actually teaching your child their ABC's and 123's"
