LeapFrog Explorer Learning Game: Letter Factory is a playful way for kids to learn the alphabet and early literacy skills. Unfortunately, the "games" aren't all that fun (with the exception of Lily's ball drop) and game play may start to feel repetitive with 26 letters to play through and nothing to vary the activity. The activities are age appropriate, but young kids may be confused and/or overwhelmed by trying to learn to identify both the upper/lowercase letters, recognize their sounds, and draw them, all at the same time. Parents may need to help young kids get started. Despite a strong premise and educational foundation, this title feels like it focuses on too narrow of a topic without sufficient variation to sustain interest over a long period.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
