Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Succeeding inSchool Set is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Educational Toy I have bought other educational toys that either are too tricky or aren't fun to play, my son actually asks to play hot dots and loves Ollie. Great easy to use/understand, and highly educational.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love Hot Dots! My son loves this Hot Dots pack! It is much more fun than workbooks, especially when you are asking for educational work over the summer. The owl pen is interactive and cute. The activities are age and grade level appropriate. I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great learning toy that builds independence All I can say is WOW! We just purchased this and my daughter loves it already. She really likes that she can do it all by herself and has a ton of cards to choose from. I really like that she is learning while playing and building her confidence and keeping her interested in studying. I see more Hot Dots in our future. Since the pen and cards are slim, they will travel well also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun learning toy This is a fun educational toy to use. It definitely beats worksheets and is somewhat self-directed. My kids enjoy doing a couple of cards every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Learning Tool I am a Kindergarten teacher and mother. My daughter and students love using the Hot Dots pen to identify the correct answers to math, reading, science, and other educational questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this for my older preschooler! My daughter loves this! She is a little young to work with these alone, but with my help, she understands and really enjoys learning! I am really surprised she understands some of the math concepts at such a young age! Very cool to watch her learn and feel excited about learning too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think we just opened the flood gates! We. Love. Hot Dots! I had never seen these before, which is odd because I am a teacher. This pack has it all but we can't wait to add to our collection! The concept is simple: use the Ollie "pen" to choose the correct answer on each card. When you tap Ollie on the dot of the correct answer, you get positive feedback with green lights, when it's an incorrect answer, you get an "oh sorry" (or something similar) with red lights. We love that you can adjust the volume of the Ollie pen and you can choose to hear only musical feedback. I have a Kindergartener and a second grader who I have used these with. My second grader, of course, was able to do most of these on his own. He especially liked the science and the reading comprehension cards. I was able to give him the cards and Ollie, and he used them as a self-directed activity, checking along the way. My Kindergartener needed much more help, of course. She needed directions read to her, as well as the bigger sentences. On some of the sets of cards, once I read her a few, she was able to do the rest on her own and gradually built up her own fluency so she could just go with it. No, Ollie does not read anything to you...he only provides the appropriate feedback to your answers. If you want something that does it all for you, there are many apps out there. I think this set is great the way it is. It allows the parent (or teacher) to scaffold to a certain point, and then the kids can run with it once they increase their learning. I was definitely NOT looking for something that did it all for me - so this set was perfect! Both of my kids really enjoyed this set. I can't wait to see what else is offered with Hot Dots! I also plan to use these in my classroom in the fall as well as with some of the kids I tutor.
