    Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Pete The Cat I Love Kindergarten! Card Set with Pen:

    Pete the cat is the coolest cat of the Hot Dot, Jr. characters, he rocks when answers are correct. His eyes flash green for correct and red for incorrect answers, There is plenty to do, if you're looking to occupy a little ones mind during those boring summer days. This is a great learning tool. There are all kinds of skills included in this Hot Dot, Jr. pack and kids don't realize the fun they're having is actually teaching them something! Don't forget batteries!!

      I had thought that it would be difficult to get my son into doing school work, he's very enregetic and un paticaint to wait for any thing, wont sit still for 2 minutes.
      He does this everyday and says mom I got to do my school work know, just about an hour after we finish he wants to do it a gain. I can't keep up with him.

        Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Pete The Cat I Love Kindergarten! Card Set with Pen:

        My son loves school and learning but something is to be said from being able to enjoy and good way to integrate education and fun and allow them to have some "independent" learning time. The Pete the Cat Hot Dots I love Kindergarten set moves him to the next level with its great questions, problem solving and learning. He has a great time going through the more that 200 activities in the two booklets and because of the interactivity he doesn't get board or ask for help. This is a great way to help their education go to the next level and let them have some fun doing it.

        I received a sample. This did not affect my opinions and they are 100% my own.

            Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Pete The Cat I Love Kindergarten! Card Set with Pen:

            my daughter loves Pete the cat and I wanted to start working on some of these concepts. She loved the sound it made for reinforcement (even loved the wrong sounds and sometimes did the wrong answer on purpose so she could hear all of them). Because kindergarten in pre-reading/reading, I would liked that the font for the targeted words within some of the activities was "normal" and not the cute fonts used in the rest of the book. It may have been me or the batteries, but I had a hard time initially getting it to work, but all worked out

              Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Jr. Pete The Cat I Love Kindergarten! Card Set with Pen:

              Pete the Cat is one cool cat, and now he helps with Kindergarten! I rec'd the I Love Kindergarten set in exchange for my honest review, and I honestly love it.
              First of all, the Hot Dots Pen IS Pete the Cat! This adds a level of fun each time your child uses this set. You can use Pete to ask the questions, read the answers, etc.
              The first book touches on counting, opposites, letter sounds, patterns/sequencing, addition, subtraction, etc.
              The second book teaches the same concepts but they're slightly harder. For example, the shapes are oval and cones which might be a new concept depending on how far along your Kindergartner is.
              Each subject is captured in full color, whimsical illustrations that keep your little one's attention.
              The only down side I experienced was that the pen would indicate a right answer when it was, in fact, the wrong answer. This was remedied by turning the pen off. The next time I used it, it worked fine.
              Unless your child can fully read, you're going to need to work on this set with them instead of using it for independent work.

                These booklets are a wonderful skill building tool for kids. It is less a game than a quiet independent or one-on- one activity but because it is designed with Pete the Cat as the main "character" it gave my daughter the incentive she needed to continue asking to use this activity over and over. The pen is a fun tool!! I love that it notifies the child if a question is answered incorrectly.

                    My daughter is really enjoying this toy. She loves the sound Pete makes when she chooses the right answer (and also sometimes, purposely chooses the wrong answer to hear a different sound). I do wonder how many times she'll go through the books. It would be nice if there were additional (more challenging books to purchase).

                      My daughter is 5 and had so much fun playing with this toy. She liked the fact that Pete's eyes lit up and produced different sounds if her answer was right or wrong. The questions were on grade level for the most part, though I would have liked book 2 to include more challenging questions. I am giving it 4 stars only because I wonder after going through the books, if my daughter will go back and use the books again. It would be great if the toy had additional books to purchase that are of increasing difficulty.

                        I love the character Pete, so I was really excited to see how my younger son who's 4.5 likes this toy. It's actually very educational and if your kids are into learning like mine, they will love it. The only thing is that all the questions were written very small and not easy for my son to read on his own so I had to read them to him. But even without knowing what the questions are, I think kids will have fun just placing the Pete pen over the answers because it makes silly noises. Overall it's a very engaging toy/learning tool for little kids!
