To begin with, I believe that this pen should be included with the card sets it is intended for--or at list should be offered at a much lower price, considering that the cards themselves are pretty expensive. That being said, the educational value of the dog is dubious. It acts as described, lighting up red for wrong answers, sometimes with a "sad" sound, and green/barking for the right answer, but the child seems to be encouraged by any sound/light, and, frankly, the "sad" sound is much more fun for my 3-year-old son, so he deliberately presses the wrong answers just for fun--or selects random answers, just to hear the dog do anything. I think it would make more sense for the dog to light up/make a sound ONLY when the right answer is selected. If, however, your child is encouraged enough by "good job," etc., this may be the right choice for you. However, keep in mind the cards (which I like) will have the same educational value with or without this pen.

Received the Patterns & Sequencing set as a gift. At first, Ace worked fine, but within a week, Ace started saying every answer was wrong. We thought maybe our 3 year old had broken it so we ordered a replacement. The brand new Ace says every answer is right. I guess there's a nice balance between the two but it's not exactly what what they're supposed to do. It's a shame because our 3 year old sooo wants to play with it, but this one needs to go back. Don't know that I want to take a chance on a 3rd one after getting 2 defective ones in a row.

This is a great concept.....IF IT WORKED PROPERLY! I'm on my second dog (returned the first one due to the same issue) and I just returned the second one and got my money back. I'm over it! I'm super frustrated b/c my little girl LOVED it and doesn't understand why I have to send it back.
What happened is the dog is supposed to tell you when you get an answer right or wrong.There is a picture on a card and a list of answers off to the side. You click on the answer that matches the picture and the dog tells you if you're correct. This dog (and the other one), after about 3 weeks, started saying everything was wrong. If my kid is learning how to match things, and the dog is wrong 24/7...it completely defeats the purpose.

I bought this doggy pen to go along with several packets of Hot Dots, Jr, packets. My daughter loves when the sounds tell her she is correct in answering. Must be precise when tapping the correct hot dot answer dots, which helps with my 4yo daughter's hand-eye coordination. There is a kitty pen available, too.

The kids love them and I like the concept, but they are not durable enough for preschoolers who tend to press or bang. I bought two and only one still works - sometimes. What makes it worse when they don't work properly, is that it tell the child it's the wrong answer when its CORRECT! THEY NEED TO WORK ON IMPROVING THE DESIGN.

Like most people's, ours died. Batteries didn't help. Cleaning the tip of the pen didn't help. Our son, though, wanted it so badly so we bought another....suckers! I like that it has a volume adjustment, and he (2 years old) finds the phrases entertaining. Honestly, he likes to hear it whether it is a positive message or not, so sometimes he goes around poking random things like his parents to hear the "that's not right," "try again," "howl....", and other messges of redirection.

Unfortunately I have bought and returned two pens and they don't work! They always say it is the wrong answer, even when it is the correct answer! So frustrating. I already bought the hot dot cards, so....now I need a pen that works. I think I might try the other pen not the Ace pen, maybe that pen will work...we will see.

This is great... When it works. And it doesn't work for long.

This is our second 'dog' as my kids call him in a year. Eventually, it will report every answer as wrong or every answer as correct

It either makes my kids feel like the smartest things or the dumbest people on earth, depending on which way it's broken...
