As an Educational Insights EI Insider, my girls occasionally receive new products for review, and this is one of them...

A part of the Hot Dots collection that we have several pieces of, this new "magical wand" from the Hot Dots Jr. line allows kids to choose their answers from Hot Dots books and cards with either spoken word or musical responses to gauge correct/incorrect. Listed for ages 3+, I'm thinking the 4-6 range is the window for this one - good for grownup assistance or early readers, as the questions are basic enough for self-guided play (ex: "Where are the letters on the page?"), but may be too easy for the older end of the younger kids.

Good for younger kids

This was a gift for my 4 year old daughter. She was excited about it at first, but has not touched it since she got it. I liked the volume control.

        Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Magical Talking Wand:

        The Magical Talking Wand™ is a fun tool for interactive learning. It's best suited for children age 3 to around five years old. This magic themed wand works with all Hot Dots learning products. I had both my kids try this one out and they seemed to like it. My 4 year old son however thought was better for girls and my 7 year old daughter was a bit too old to be that interested in it. From a parent and home school teacher view point, I feel it's a clever way to get children in the recommended age group interested in practicing their schooling. Batteries are required for this to work and aren't included in the price. On the wand, there's a volume control and music/voice music button. When children click the right or wrong answers in Hot Dots Jr. card and book sets, the wand will either have voice or themed sound depending on which mode you use chose.

        This may not be for every child but for the child that learns well in this way, I feel this a great tool to utilize. There are many different Hot Dots products on the market that this will work with. Children will be able to learn at their own relaxed pace. It's an affordable option and if you looking to steer clear from too much screen time even for educational games, this may be the way to go. I would recommend this for preschool through kindergarten age group, especially those princess and fairy tell loving little girls!

          My almost 4 year old really enjoys this and loves to hear when she gets the answer right. She loves the princess wand and her 7 year old sister loves it too! It's perfect for a rainy day or when the girls need a little down time from their busy life!

            This 7" pen is designed for use with Hot Tots products. It lights up green to let kids know they answered correctly. If they are wrong it will be red. It does take a few batteries so you might want to gift some batteries along with this pen.

You can buy a whole series of books to go with it to help them learn everything from shapes to math. I especially recommend this to all the homeschooling mamas and the moms getting their kids ready for school.

                  The Magical Talking Wand is a fun way for your little princess to get a head start on reading. The wand is compatible with all the Hot Dots products, which are books and flash cards that teach kids everything from colors to reading and math. We tried it out with one of the alphabet books. Each page asks a question, like finding everything on the page that starts with the letter B. If the child guesses correctly, the wand lights up green and congratulates them. If they get it wrong, it encourages them to try again. I was especially happy that it worked with all my old Hot Dots set, because I have a bunch of them

                  The wand operates using two AAA batteries. These are not included.

                    My kids are really excited to have another wand. They already own two of the blue dog wands and one of the toddler bear wand. The wand is great for kids who love girly items. My daughters get a lot of use out of the item, and they love going through their workbooks together.

                    I received the item for free to help inform my writing, but that didn't influence my point of view.

                    Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Magical Talking Wand:

                    I received this product from Educational Insights in exchange for my honest review, which I am providing.

                    I found this particular Hot Dots wand to be very responsive, which was great to see (some other models have been more spotty). The volume control was great to see (you can even make it silent so that children have to notice if the light turns green or red).

                    My major complaint is the princess theme. Obviously you know what you are getting if you choose to purchase this item, but I see no reason for this type of toy to be gendered in such a way. It seems unnecessary to throw a crown on something that isn't related to imaginative play.

                      We received this toy for review purposes.

                      We love using the Hot Dots Jr. cards for rainy day activities or to fill in time between lessons. Until now we only had the dog talking wand, but the princess magical talking wand is a nice addition to our learning tools. Built sturdy and with clear voice to indicate to kids whether their answer was right or wrong, this wand is an exciting addition to the Hot Dots line. Anybody who loves princesses will enjoy the sparkly lights and voice as they test their knowledge!
