Letterland Turns 50!

Here at Letterland we're blowing up balloons and hanging streamers in celebration of our 50th birthday.

It's been half a century since the wonderful Lyn Wendon created Letterland at her kitchen table. Since then, we've helped teach thousands of children how to read in over 100 countries.

We wouldn't have got this far without all the amazing teachers and trainers that have supported us over the years, so a huge thank you to all of you!


To make sure we gave all our beloved Letterlanders the party that they deserve, we asked our friends all around the world to help make a special birthday video.

We want to say a huge thank you to everyone that sent us their birthday videos, and congratulations to all our competition winners featured in the video. We are so excited to have winners from China, Indonesia, Ireland, New Zealand, Nigeria, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Turks and Caicos Islands and the United States.

Here’s the finished video!
