Asked for phonics toys to help my son for christmas and even i know that these are not the sounds of the letters, awful that they are classing this as phonics, good idea but perhaps would have been better if they had got the sounds right!!!

This is a great idea but beware, the letter sounds are not accurate! Maybe this is just me being picky due to my teaching background (Primary school teacher). The letter 'S' should make a 'sssssssss' sound (like a snake) but this toy says the sound 'Su', another example is 'M' should be 'Mmmm' (like you are enjoying your food) but this says 'Mu'. These are not accurate phonics sounds.
Shame as this could have been very good!

This is very poor! Certainly not for ages 4-8!!! All the child has to do is match the letter on one card to the letter of the word on the other. Nothing to do with phonics or learning to read! Can't believe ELC are selling such a poor product. Very disappointing, I'm taking it bake asap and I expect a full refund!!!

I am a primary school teacher and was shocked by the phonics that are being taught to children through the use of this product. The phonics children are taught to help them read and write are NOT the phonics this game uses. I bought the game for a low ability child to try and improve their phonic knowledge and after a play with the product myself, I returned it for a refund. Terrible product and ELC should recall the product until the necessary changes are made. If the product was corrected, it would be a very helpful learning tool.

Bought this for my daughter, It only has 17 alphabets , but there is no opportunity to buy the remaining alphabets, and no phonic sounds. Can be quite confusing for a child who is trying the learn the complete alphabet in order.

This product is shockingly bad! I wouldnt have even given it one star if I didnt have to. I wish I had read all of the other reviews before I bought it for my son. It doesn't even have all the letters of the alphabet in it!!!
Absolutely awful product. I would have expected better from ELC.

Bought this for my little girl to try and help her with her letters. Very disappointing indeed and really would have thought better of ELC! It doesnt even have all of the alphabet letters and as other reviewers have pointed out - no phonics! The only goodish thing about it is that the product is fairly well made but that's not reason enough to buy. Save your money and dont buy - what a load of rubbish!!!!
