  • I have never tried it, but as a reading specialist I can tell you it is a scam. If you want your child to get a "head start" then the best thing you can do is talk to them a lot, read to them a lot, let them learn through play and exploration and limit tv/screen time as much as possible. Even if your baby can memorize the words on the cards and learn to "read" them, it is not going to help them in the long run, the other stuff I said before will be much more valuable for your child in the long run that that silly program. A big waste of money if you ask me. Instead spend your money on some good quality blocks, puzzles, and books.

  • Work with your children and that works best that's all they have you pay for you can go to walmart and buy flash cards or make your own.

  • My sons aunt bought it for him. It works. Sure you could just talk to your child but he can identify words and pronounce some of the words of the songs. He even recites body parts to me and phrases that he learns. Im impressed. There is a 30 day money back guarantee. Try it. Besides I play it back to back twice while I clean or cook. He loves it and hes 18 months old.

  • We have it. I don't do the flash cards or anything else, but my LO learned her colors, and can say many more words after using it. By the way letter factory and word factory by leap frog are just as good and a lot cheaper.

  • My mom used it for my little brother. When he was 1.5 years old he knew his colors, numbers and letters. Seeing that, I say it works but every child is different.
