Letter Factory

Spring 2013 Video Games
Ages: 3 - 5 yrs.
Price: $24.99
Gaming System: LeapFrog Explorer

In LeapFrog's Letter Factory, children join familiar characters Leap, Lily, and Tad, on a trip to the Letter Factory where they meet Burfder, an aspiring letter who needs their help realizing his dream. While playing through the story, children practice letter recognition, phonics, word building, letter writing, and matching. They can even collect letters of the alphabet in their own letter journals. Catchy songs serve as both learning and mnemonic devices. One of our favorites teaches children the sounds associated with each letter. Grown-ups may find themselves humming and singing this song! The colorful animation and friendly characters engage and encourage children throughout the program. This game is a great addition to a family's library of LeapFrog games, and it coordinates well with the DVD of the same name.
