    Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. - Beginning Science:

    We received this along with the Princess wand, which my daughter loves. She's 4.5 years old and I found that this is too easy for her she knew all of the answers, so I try to improvise by talking about each object on the card and giving her some extra information... I would definitely recommend this to parents with kids getting ready to go to preschool or barely starting preschool. The carry-on box is also handy, I personally don't like toys with many pieces but toys that come with something handy like a briefcase or a box with a handle to store all the pieces are always a plus for me.

      Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. - Beginning Science:

      My preschooler loves these! She received the princess wand pen from EI as well. These are the perfect level of challenging for her - some she's mastered, other she's still learning to master. She loves the cards just as they are - as a mom of a toddler and a preschooler - I kind of wish they were on a large ring or in book form. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of all the cards. The box they arrive km is sturdy and certainly acceptable for storage - but the individual cards turn up on various places occasionally. All in all - these cards in combination with a pen of choice would make an excellent gift for any preschooler!

        Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. - Beginning Science:

        We received the Hot Dots, Jr. Beginning Science as a gift for our 3 kids ages 4.5 and 3 yr old twins. They love the challenge of finding the correct answer. I can either read the question to them or they can figure out what the match is on the card. Questions are engaging, thoughtful and allows them to ask me questions about the animal or plant on the card. Like where do potatoes grow? Or where does a bunny live? Then the typical toddler/preschooler question.... But why? I wish it came with its own wand. It comes separately. We did receive the magical wand with with the box and the wand fits inside the box which is great so the cards and wand won't get separated. This set will be great for rainy days, car trips, busy bag activities and anytime a busy mom needs a break.

          I use these pens in a Literacy Workstation in my Kindergarten classroom and they have been going strong for a month now! The kids enjoy the buzzes and noises, and it has built their fine motor skills by having them click on the bubble beside the correct answer. I will be using these in the word work center all year! The noise is quiet even at it's maximum - which is a good thing!!
