Hot Dots, Jr. is one of my favorite purchases. The flashcards are nicely designed with pictures and questions that help a small one learn with fun! AND more than one child can interact with the cards, with the help of one of the Hot Dot pens. The directions are easy to follow and my grandchildren LOVE this, I have purchased a few more of these because they are loving these questions, responses from their "Pen Pals" and it is a game to them, The flashcards come in a nice Velcro closured box.

To be a fully autonomous product for pre-readers, there should be a black dot next to the instructions on each card. This way the child can hear what is expected of them rather than having an adult have to be nearby at all times to instruct. Was disappointed when I discovered this. If this change was made this would be a really phenomenal product. This critique goes for all of the cards/books that are designed for pre-readers.

Pen doesn't work. All answers are "incorrect"

By Michael

from Los Angeles, CA

About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children

Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Cards - Beginning Phonics:

Worked for a little bit. Now we're using it for our 2nd child and the pen gives "incorrect" for every choice.

Tried cleaning the pen tip, changing batteries, tapping on every part of the circles... Nothing.

        Bought this for my daughter for the summer holidays before she started school. What a great resource. We can do it together or she's getting confident to do them by herself. She uses the cards with the kitty pen, who kindly tells her she is wrong so she's not put off to try again.
        Cards got a little bent when my niece got hold of them, but still work fine and were easily flattened!

              *I received this product in exchange for my honest review.

              My four year old son loves having his own hot dots set, just like his big brothers. We use our "dog pen" with these cards and it works well. My son is motivated to review the cards since he considers the pen cool. I love that it's educational and that he can review on his own. My only complaint is that if the pen is not directly on top of the dot, it can give the incorrect answer. Sometimes it helps to wipe the tip of the pen with a tissue.
