Content is great, but DVD Implementation is flawed

"WordWorld is great, and the DVDs for my two-year-old are awesome. She says "Woof" when she wants to watch this DVD because Dog is so cute, and she spells along with the animated Build-A-Word sequences. The content is top-notch!
What I do have a very big problem with is the "Hopla" trailers that run automatically at the end of the WordWorld disks. It's pretty sneaky to piggy back another series for toddlers at the end of a series this good. It's just an unwelcome commercial, which I shouldn't have to deal with since I *bought* the DVD. I definitely DO NOT want my daughter to watch the inane Hopla series and would never buy it. Unfortunately, the jingle is permanently stuck in my head after hearing the first few seconds three or four times in the background before I could stop the DVD."
Some of the cutest WordWorld episodes yet!!

"This DVD is awesome. The great literacy lessons continue...and these are some of the cutest WW episodes we've ever seen. My kids love them, especially the "monster maker" music video at the end- so fun!

"I really adore this entire series, which we discovered on public TV while visiting the United States with our kids. Most of my previous "nostalgia" purchases (eg, Sesame Street) sadly tended to enchant me more than the kids, but this one seems to be more in tune with the groove of the modern toddler and as a parent I see that it has been a good support for vocabulary and spelling. Also, I love the Klezmer-inspired theme music. When the disc is over and you have that playing in the background for ten minutes until you can get around to turning off the darn thing, this is an important criteria."
