Both of my kids love to learn. My daughter actually asks for learning toys each year for Christmas. However, her love for learning could be fueled by the fact that learning is something that we share in our household. Every night we snuggle together on the couch and either read a book together or fill out worksheets. It is something that we enjoy doing in addition to schooling and have found that it gives us a chance to unplug and share time together. While the kids look forward to this sharing time each night I do know that someday they might not want to do it anymore, so I am buying into it as much as I can now… while I still can. So when I found this learning toy I was immediately sold. Plus, it will cut back on the paper and ink used to print off worksheets and it is also interactive!
The Hot Dots boxes I received both contained two learning books and a pen that when placed on the correct answer dot would speak comments of praise, such as “Awesome!”. Subsequently, when a wrong answer is clicked the pen would reply in phrases such as “Whoops, not it.”. The child would then be able to choose another answer until the got it right. The questions seemed adequate to both of my children’s learning levels. They were not too hard, but would challenge them as needed. The pages were thick and not easily ripped like paper would be. My three year old isn’t quite as gentle with books as he should be yet. Also the picture quality is superb. The colors are bright and eye catching. Many of my readers already know how much I love picture learning, it does wonders for my “visual learners”.
The sets are available for grades Pre-K through third grade in both math and reading. I picked up two of them. One for my daughter who is six and one for my son who is 3. The best part? These sets are only $24.99 at educationalinsights.com. That’s a great price for everything that is included.
