    Having learnt the character names many children found it difficult to stop saying Clever Cat for /c/ and so on. Jolly Phonics works much better and, as someone else said, much depends on how you teach it.

    The letter names irritated me no end, and I always felt that it overcomplicated things.
  3. We use it at my Kindergarten in Hong Kong! :)

    No more Water Witch...it's now 'Walter Walrus' - several characters have changed since I was taught as a child, mainly due to PC reasons

    I used it years ago. The children liked the characters and learned their names. But it didn't help them to recall actual letter sounds, and was useless as far as blending is concerned.
