I started a company creating animated series (17 videos 3-6 minute-long each) to teach children phonics. We wanted to make learning fun. The series is about a place where letters of the alphabet go to learn their shapes and sounds, and do magic in the process.

Kids love this but I'd love to do proper efficacy testing and get feedback from reception teachers. What do you think - do you like this? Is this usable in a classroom? Would anyone would like to use/test some of these series in the classroom (for free)? Here is a link to one of the lessons teaching S and T.

I really appreciate your help! I wanted to get feedback from someone else than the teachers we have worked with.

Please respond to this post or contact me at
Thanks a lot,

Personally I wouldn't use it for teaching I'm afraid. It looks fun and I'm sure children will like the characters but it isn't teaching phonics
