Hot Dots are a favorite with my children! Hot Dots are a fun, educational learning toy that my kids love. We have spent the last week playing with the new Pete the Cat Kindergarten Rocks version and it's spent more time in my child's hands than in the box.

This Hot Dots set comes with two books and a Pete the Cat shaped "pen" (requires two AAA batteries). The marking pen has the option to play sound or silence, that make a whimsical sound when choosing an answer in the books. The books are age and grade appropriate and follow the curriculum my child is currently learning, including math, shapes, and language arts.

This set also includes a sheet of Pete the Cat stickers and a certificate to give your child when they complete the books. We have always had a love for Hot Dots but the addition of the beloved children's character Pete the Cat makes us love this set even more.

The concept of this product was great, but once I opened it for my 5-year old daughter and explained the product to her, she was pushing all of the answers and just waiting to the Pete the Cat pen to light up "green" or "red" even before I read her the question. I wished this product would give the pen the ability to read each question to the child because my daughter wanted to do this activity "alone" and at her age, she is not readinf fluently. This required for me to reach each question to her before answering. Overall, it was hard to keep her engaged and really get the full educational use. Lastly, she was not really into the whole Pete the Cat theme as she and all of the other kids read these books when they were 3-4 years old.

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

      My 5 year old loved this set. In her words, "It's awesome. Pete is a very cool cat. I love him very much." She loves the book series so that motivated her along with the stickers.
      The Hot Dots are great for instant feedback and reinforcing correct answers. As a Kindergarten teacher some of the questions are a bit hard, especially for beginning of the year. It is not an independent activity unless you're reading on a 1st and above reading level. With an adult reading the questions it's a great activity for K kids although some questions (long vowels, capitalization) may need explanation.

        My Kindergarten class loves Pete the Cat, so they were excited to receive the Hot Dots featuring Pete the Cat. There were 2 books and the hot dot pen that came in the package. There are 2 levels that focus on Reading, writing, math, science, social studies and foundational skills of Critical thinking and making inferences. When they are finished with their work they may choose to look at books or use the hot dots and most choose to use Pete the Cat!

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

          This set has been a great addition to our homeschooling resources. Being homeschoolers we didn't have to prepare our daughter for school and therefore my daughter was not familiar with Pete the cat stories prior to receiving this set, but after watching YouTube, she loves his songs. My five year old only recently began to read so she can't do the books completely on her own yet, but she has lots of fun with them. She loves the noises that the Pete the cat pen makes and she enjoys working her way through the interesting activities in the books. I like that the pen has a muted but lighted mode, too, for more quiet times. The stickers are a bonus incentive and I like that the books have a specific place to put them. We are very pleased with this set and definitely recommend it.

          We did receive a free set in exchange for our honest opinion about it.

            This is a great set to get for your student in Kindergarten. It helps reinforce what they are learning and it makes it fun and exciting. Pete the Cat is a great way to keep them engaged and entertained. There are two spiral bound booklets with over 200 activities and the musical part of it makes it that much more fun. I love that it incorporates reading, math, science and other subjects so that my kids can have fun learning "on their own" but still be guided. I totally recommend this - and it is a great gift.

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

              I reviewed the I Love Kindergarten set and I loved it- and I love this set, too! {I rec'd this set in exchange for my honest review.}
              The Kindergarten Rocks from Pete the Cat is as awesome as the I Love Kindergarten set! I still love the Pete the Cat pen, the great illustrations, and the great quality of this products.
              Like the first set, this set reviews K concepts- and are slightly more advanced than the last set.
              Book 1 reviews proper sentence punctuation, number sequence, letter sounds, opposites, additon & subtraction, etc.
              Book 2 reviews compound words, counting larger numbers, riddles, complex shapes, graphs, rhyming, time, etc.
              I would recommend this set for anyone who has a Kindergartener in the second half of the year.
              I also hope the EI makes additional learning books to go along with this Pete the Cat line of Kindergarten products!

                I love all the illustrations and even the pen is super cute and I love how it makes silly sounds.
                My son is so into getting all the questions right and when you get them right, Pete's eyes light up green.
                Even though the books are thin and small enough to carry around, they are packed with so many questions. It's perfect for traveling
                and you can turn off the sound to make it quite at restaurants. All in all, a great toy that I highly recommend this to anyone who has kids 4-6 years old.

                  I can't believe I didn't know about these before! I love that there are different grade levels. We got the kindergarten one for my kindergartener and he love playing it. He is not quite reading yet but the words are easy and the pictures make identifying the answer super easy. The cute little pen that is pete the cat has eyes that light up green for the right answer and red for the incorrect answer. It also makes a sound for added fun. The best thing is we go on lots of road trips and this is the perfect thinges for my son to take in the car. I plan on getting the preschool one for my 3 year old.

Then, her sister helped and now the two of them play together with it. I love how it's educational and fun at the same time. Great toy!

                      Pete the Cat is great! Our 5 year old just started kindergarten and loves Hot Dots. He is very familiar with the preschool version, so he picked up the Kindergarten Rocks level very easily. It is a little more challenging for him to do on his own right now, as he is not a strong reader, but a lot of the questions are easy to figure out by the pictures. He constantly wants to play with Pete the Cat throughout the day and his confidence level has sky rocketed!
                      If you ask him, the best part is when you answer correctly, it plays music and Pete the Cats eyes are green. If you answer wrong, his eyes glow red! He loves it! He recently pulled it out with the babysitter, and they played "school" for an hour! Great learning fun!!
                      This product is very durable and can be played again and again. The package came with fun stickers and an Award Certificate!

                        My son enjoys his Pete the Cat Kindergarten Rocks and was eager to open it. He likes the fact that he can play and learn at the same time. I was surprised how well he was able to navigate through the books with the pen with minimal help. This is truly what every kindergartner should have.
