My daughter has lots of fun flipping through each card and understood how to use this easily. This also helped with attention and coordination when positioning of the pen. We just wish the pen would fit in the little container that the hot dots flash cards came in.

My students love using the hot dot pens but unfortunately it is a gamble on if yours will work or not. 7 out of my 8 pens work just fine but one has always detected all answers as wrong. I will have to go to the store and replace it because the students really love them...just frustrating.

        We received this pen along with the Hot Dots Additional Math Flash cards. It is sturdy and the feedback is great. My child loved both items. This is appropriate for ages 5 and up.

          Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Talking Pen - Silver:

          This silver and turquoise Hot Dots Talking a pen is an updated version of their other (yellow) pen. It requires 2 AAA batteries (not included) and works with all Hot Dots books (sold separately).

          These pens help make learning fun. With their lights and sounds it helps motivate kids when they get the correct answer in the workbooks. When choosing a correct answer, the pen will say things such as, "perfect", "way to go", "good choice". The sound options are low, high, and off (displaying only the light when pushing an answer). The light flashes green for a correct answer, red for an incorrect answer.

          Having an extra pen is great when you have multiple children and multiple workbooks to use at the same time.

            This is a great extra pen to have for all of our Hot Dots books. This allows for both my kids to play at the same time and NOT fight over the pen! Not to mention it can work with most any Hot Dots books just in case we misplace a pen. Win Win in our house :)

                Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots Talking Pen - Silver:

                My five year old loves the noises that the pen makes and she enjoys working her way through Hot Dots cards/books (sold separately) with the pen. I like that the pen has a muted but lighted mode, too, for more quiet times. I also really like that the pen instantly lets her know if her answer is correct or incorrect. The lights are green for correct answers and red for incorrect answers. We have had a few different Hot Dot pens over the years and she really likes the color combination of this one.

                We received a free pen in exchange for our honest opinion about it.

                  My students and daughter love this product. They love checking their knowledge using this pen along with Hot Dots activity cards because they get to hear cool sound effects. I have several versions of Hot Dots pens, but I think this one is my favorite because of its sleek look. Requires batteries.

I'm a teacher and a mom, and I'm always looking for engaging activities for my students and kids. Hot Dots are great and you can find just about any subject area you need! :)
