What might your favorite DVDs be (or Amazon/youtube streaming) for a 2.5yo, covering alphabet and sounds?

Alphablocks, it's on YouTube. It's a series. It starts with alphabet sounds then the letters hold hands and sound out words.

Leapfrog Letter Factory is brilliant.  There are others in the series that are good, but Letter Factory is amazing at teaching letter sounds.

I keep hearing about LF Letter Factory, so I guess I need to give that one a try.  Thanks.  :-D

1. Signing Time ABC signs is my very favorite. I usually start w that and then move on to Letter Factory.

2. Rusty & Rosie videos if you can find them. They were recommended by a mom on this forum years ago and we really liked them. Quite old-fashioned (80s/90s computer animation) but oddly catchy songs and illustrations.

3. My must-have alphabet book is Curious George Learns the Alphabet and then second (for letter sounds) is Abadaba Alphabet, which comes with a CD narrated by Jim Weiss.

Yes, the frog. Under $10 from amazon, that little frog never tires of repeating himself. Worth every penny and then some.
