Material Resource: Hooked on Phonics

Last Summer at a great sale I bought this kit for $16 after shipping (it's selling for $68+ on CBD now). The Yellow Workbook (Uppercase letters) is mostly revision for Ian since he knows the uppercase. There are activities (using the cards) with every revision break and I thought they are quite interesting. There are also early phonetic activities (like picking out which words have same ending sounds) but Ian is not good at that. They also have CD-Rom for him to play.
We have finished the Red Workbook (lowercase letters) and Ian is now very proficient in the letters. He is much better in the mirror-image now.
We have not started blue book for he's not good with phonetic sounds.
This material is interesting; however, I have a complaint about this material. It lacks creativity. The games (on the CD-Rom and in the books) are all repetitive. They really could have made it more varied and interactive. For $16 it's ok. I won't pay $70 for this.
