Why we love this

Get ready for school in a fun and active way. With 3 action-packed games and 5 learning levels that adapt as children play, the Word Whammer gets kids busy developing phonics skills as they spin, push and twist the handles to identify letters and build words. Thrust the handle to blast a rocket into letters to spell more than 100 words. Match upper and lowercase letters by spinning the handle to bump a car into the correct answer. Listen for a letter sound, then twist the handle fast to spin the teacup into the letter that makes that sound. The learning adapts automatically as children play, keeping them challenged, motivated and having fun as they progress through 5 levels. Designed for children ages 4 and up, the Word Whammer comes with a Parent Guide. Requires 3 x AAA batteries.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great On-the-go Educational Toy This product was provided to me free of charge for the purposes of this review. All opinions are my own. My 4-year-old daughter loves playing with this toy, and it's the perfect game to bring along to her siblings' sports practices and games. She loves the action of twisting and spinning the handle — a fun departure from the touch screen — and she thinks the "slot machine" reward at the end of each game is hilarious. I think this is a good educational toy, but I think the 3 games lack variety. Each game is pretty similar and the words and letters seem to be repeated a lot. The good news is, the repetition has my 4-year old telling me she knows how to spell words (and she does, thanks to the Word Whammer!), but I think a more advanced reader/speller could tire of this game quickly. In my opinion, it's more appropriate for 3-5 year olds. 26 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Spelling has never been so easy product was provided by leapfrog for the purpose of this review. thoughts are 100% ours. Kids are learning how to spell and read much earlier than we did as kids. knowing their Letters and site words are key to helping kids take the next step to reading. Word Whammer makes reading fun. There's 3 fun games and silly tunes and fun lil cartoons that make kids laugh. My son is 7 and he already knows how to read but playing spelling games with the word whammer is even fun for him. My son says he likes when he wins prizes for spelling words. Then he likes bringing them to the carnival and showing them to all the other animals. He says he likes playing the Dragon’s Rocket ride the most because you get to be in a rocket even though dragons can fly. He thinks that’s funny. At the of the game it shows you how many you get right and it says you win six tickets and shows them on the screen. I like that alot about it. I play before bed and sometimes like to bring it in the car with us when we go for drives. My best friend the school teacher says she really loves it and is going to pick up one for her son who's starting Kindergarten next yr. She loves it teaches 3 letter words and the sounds to the letter. Letter matching is great for kids. 20 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun Learning Toy! I was so excited when the Word Whammer was sent to us from Leap Frog to review. My son was entering Kindergarten and had just begun reading when the product arrived. The design is brilliant for the 5-ish year old! My son loves steering it as he twists, taps and spins the little device. The three included games are fun and educational and the child can even drive a car into the correct answer. The price falls right into the birthday party range and the toy is light enough to tuck into a bag or bring in the car. Like all Leap Frog products - the intuitive automatic leveling keeps the child engaged. This is a fun and helpful tool to work on phonics and spelling skills. 17 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great game for little learning readers! Word Whammer is awesome for the kids that are ready to start learning to read. The games readily helps them identify the letters to complete the words while sounding them out as well. This is another great item by Leapfrog. It's great for when we're on the road. It keeps them occupied happy and learning all at the same time. Which is a win for the whole family. 30 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun for Learning to Read This product is a great toy for early readers. I have a kindergartener and this game has been a huge hit. I like that there are 5 levels so the child can continue to learn. The Word Whammer teaches letter names, letter sounds and word building. This toy would make a great birthday party gift! Disclosure: I received products for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own. 18 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So helpful and fun! This new toy is so great- it is small enough for me to carry in my purse so that I can whip it out when we are in waiting rooms, traffic or restaurants for my kids to work on their letters while I enjoy a meal! They love it and are really engaged with it. It's nice to have a portable toy that educates them. HIGHLY recommend! 03 September 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Letters Are Fun! Word Whammer is a toy that kids spin, tap, twist and more to spell words, match letters and pick the correct letter sounds. It reminds me of the Bop It toy but Word Whammer is both educational and fun. At $20, I think its a neat toy for any child ages 4-6 years old, perfect to get them ready for Kindergarten and 1st grade. I gave it to my 4 year old and she immediately had the thing figured out. She is still learning so she makes a lot of mistakes but I love seeing her try and pick it back up randomly throughout the day. I like to keep it in the car and it is a great way to keep her busy while learning. I received this product to review in exchange for sharing my honest opinion. 02 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by just perfect for little hands Disclosure: I received a copy of this game to facilitate my review, however, all opinions are my own and I was not required to give a positive review. I LOVE this toy!! It has a few different games on it that went over sounds and letter recognition. My four year old is already building words with this whammer and it helps my 6 year old learn new words. It is a great size - just perfect for little hands and easy for traveling. I like watching the girls play the whammer and seeing them twist and push it to make things happen. The games are perfect for them. They have rockets and other subjects that they like. It was a great way to get my daughters to do something educational while having fun and keep them entertain while I am at meetings, games, and appointments! 01 September 2015
