I have that program. However, I did not let my kids play consistently :oops:

From what I've seen, it's not too bad. Although I find that some of the sessions can be pretty long, repetitive and boring. But I guess that's the reinforcement part.

It is from the program that I learned 'ae' sounds like 'ee' :wink:

Anyway, I intend to start my kids on the program again, maybe you can PM me to get updates :D

I bought that too, impressed at first with the presentation during the
roadshow in some mall i cannot recall where right now... however aft
i brought it back, fiddled with it a couple of times with the girls... the
items were left collecting dust. So i sold it off. The repetition from the
games didn't and couldn't hold their interest for long. Mine too actually.
But it is definitely a good effort by our own people. We didn't even use
the workbooks at the point of sale. My girls were already reading before
i even managed to show them all of what the set offered. So, i sold mine
like almost brand new. Only two discs were opened and used. I didn't find
it worth paying like 120 with one extra game disc for the entire set. A bit
ex. Just my personal opinion.
