Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pen isn't always right I love the idea of this and was really excited to try it with my children. My son gets very frustrated with the pen because it isn't always right. I watch my son pick the right answers and the pen says he's wrong all the time. The whole point of this is to be a fun way to learn and by not working correctly, it kind of defeats the purpose of it. I still use the cards to teach without the pen, so there's that, I guess.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for little ones who want to do "school" too. We homeschool and lately the 3 year old (3-1/2 really) has been wanting to do school, but with the busyness of Christmas, his "school" has kind of fallen off the radar. Instead of just reading to him, we've been doing these a few mornings and week and he has been loving it. He absorbs a lot just interacting with his sisters. These have been a perfect way to do some focused learning, just with him, without having to coordinate things or spend a bunch of time planning. This kit has 5 sets of cards. The Colors and patterns set has activities like, what is the same, what should it be, identifying word names (worthless IMO--I don't agree with sight word stuff) and what colors are in the picture. The Shapes set has activities like which shapes are the same, which matches the first, which are in the picture, and which is next in the pattern. Learning the alphabet includes matching letters to the first item (both upper and lower) and then picking all items that match the Ul combo at the beginning of the row. Let's Learn Numbers has you identifying the numeral through a series of which are the same and then counting exercises. The uppercase/lowercase set has things like giving you the upper and selecting the lower from a choice of two. As it gets more advanced, you pick from a larger list or find the box with the correctly paired set. These are perfect for us right now. He has great success with many things he already knows and there are several things for us to work on together. I like the succession of information (for the most part). The only thing I DON'T like is that the cards are sequential in content, but they are all loose cards. A book or a bound set of cards would be much easier (and frankly, make less of a mess!). All in all, though, I really like these and would recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Educational and Fun We love this product. It works as a refresher for my eldest who is in Kindergarten and my youngest who is just beginning to become interested in learning. The only thing that I wish that came with it was something to hold all the cards and maybe another reader other than Ace. We have about ten of him with every Hot Dots package we get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from School Prep My 5 year old really enjoyed these cards, it is cute product and covers a lot of information. There are 80 double sided cards and they get jumbled up and scattered all over the table- I wish they were in a spiral bound folder or something. Other than that, it was a big hit and everything worked perfectly! My child can't read yet, so I had to be there to provide prompts and read choices, but it was a great way to review and learn skills.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for awhile. My 3 year old loved it but did not want to go along with what it said. He just wanted to push the dots. The older kids had fun with it once and then it got put aside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We're Ready for Kindergarten with Hot Dots Jr.! The Hot Dots Jr. "Getting Ready for School" set was perfect for my daughter (age 5) and for my students entering Kindergarten. The talking pen allows the child to select his/her answer to the question and hear a sound or phrase to indicate whether their response was correct or incorrect. The cards cover a variety of topics like alphabet, colors, and more! This is also a great toy to have in the car.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ace does not work at all Ace only says "that's incorrect" even when the answer is.
