Customer Reviews

Lots of learning fun.
Jeff Sybesma
The user has to get the small pen end exactly in the center of a hot dot that is just as big or smaller than the pen's tip.

I recently purchased two of these pens to replace the older version of the same product. After several years of use, our older pen no longer worked. My kids thoroughly enjoyed using the hot dots cards and I liked the self correcting feature. The new pen, however, does not work with the older hot dots flashcards. It marks every answer as correct! When I called the manufacturer, I was told that the new pens do not work with the old cards; that the technology is different. So I am stuck with two sets of cards and no pen, and two new pens with no cards. The manufacturer appologized and recommended I look on Amazon for an old pen or return my new ones to the store for a refund. I am very frustrated and disppointed that those are my choices. My cards are in excellent condition and it bothers me to think that I should have to repurchase a product I ALEADY OWN because the stupid "new" pens don't work. I also liked the style of the older pens better. The new pens are chubby and kind of babyish looking for my 3rd and 4th graders.

Kids do actually find it very entertaining. I wish that the pen came with a pack of cards that pronounced the words specifically for that pack. I'd recommend it over the Leaptag if that did happen. Great for teachers that have centers. I'd say pick up 4 of these and a couple packs of cards and you have a Hot Dots Center. I wouldn't consider it an everyday center though. It's good for about 10-15 minutes at a time. The box of cards I was using for this demonstration was theSet 4: Blends and Diagraphs (Hot Dots Phonics Flash Cards).

My 5 year old enjoyed working on her hot dots package, but the pen is often inaccurate- meaning she has to put it exactly on the dot otherwise, it does not provide an accurate reply. It is hard to expect five year olds to often be that accurate, and this means I have to sit with her when she is using the pen to make sure that the answers given by it are correct. That said, any independent learning potential is out of the window. Nevertheless the pen is fun, and she gets a kick hearing it praise her correct answers.

This is the second Hot Dots pen I have purchased (one for each of my girls)! I also have the Hot Dots Jr pen "Spike" (it works great as well)! The designs are nice and sturdy! My children like using them. We have not had any problems with any of them not working right. You do have to hold the pen straight up or it will give you a "try again" but my daughters have figured out how to use it properly and enjoy using it! I would recommend any of the Hot dots educational toys.

I got 3 of these for students to use when they finish their assignment. They work, but not as quickly as I would have liked. You have to hold it on the dot for a bit and wait to see which light or sound will result.

I won this product in a giveaway. My son is in kindergarten. We won the Vocabulary Cards, Prefixes And Suffixes and the Math Flash Cards - Telling Time. He was able to read the questions, understand them and answer some of the questions. He found the Hot Pen such a cool toy that could give him the correct answer. My son had no problems with how to operate the pen and understood he had to click on the dot to properly use it. This learning tool would have been pretty much the same just listing which answer is correct. But the Hot Pen makes it cooler for kids and can be used with other lessons at different age levels. I will definitely buy more lessons that are designed more to his grade level. This will be a great learning tool as he gets older.

This product shipped quick and seems to work well. I had slightly higher hopes for the use of the product. I wasn't fond of the responses it makes...but it works.

A must have to go along with the Hot Dot flash cards. My kids love to practice their math and I don't even have to ask them to do it.
