Cabin fever, anyone?  My kids are practically climbing walls.  We had such a good daily trip-to-the-park routine going, but the cold weather can’t tempt any of us to stay out longer than we have to.  I feel like we’ve already played to capacity with all the indoor toys we own, so an opportunity to review a new (and education!) toy from Educational Insights came at the perfect time.

logo01Education Insights is a wonderworld of award-winning toys and games.  You can search by subject, category, theme, or brand to view ingenious after ingenious, and the variety of products is so vast.  From Sprout & Growâ„¢ Wonder Soil® to a 40 Smencils® Set, you’re bound to find just what you had in mind to foster a budding curiosity in your child or student.


After reading what this Hot Dots set is all about, I was 100% confident that my toddler would be interested, intrigued, and then excited to figure it out.  Marking pens, lights, sounds, and numbers is a winning combination with him.  These Dots Let’s Master sets are activity books and markers that range from grade levels Pre-K to Grade 3 in reading or math.


We reviewed the Hot Dots® Jr. Let’s Master Pre-K Math, which is intended for children ages 3-6.  I thought it was completely developmentally appropriate for my 3-year-old.  As you can see below, when the correct dot is pressed with the “puppy marker”, as my son calls it, it lights up in green and a positive statement can be heard.  If the wrong dot is pressed, you hear a “try again” or “that’s not right”.  I feel like the instant feedback is so encouraging and motivating for my boy to keep trying and to keep answering correctly.


There are 100 lessons of a big variety.  He’s not just counting and adding things; there are activities like picking out what things are similar, what happens next, and picking out shapes.  Some of these activities are hard to figure out what to do if you can’t yet read the directions, so having a parent near by to read the directions and explain the task is ideal, and this only makes this set more appealing to me.  This has become a learning activity that we can do together, where my son doesn’t get frustrated and it is easy to move on to another lesson, or go through the whole book if he wants.


In all, what a great toy!  The activities are not grueling for kids and the talking light-up pen is just the ticket!  I also love that this activity is completely transportable.  Its a notebook and a pen.  Everyone can fit that in their purse or backpack, and this could even make a great activity for a car ride.

And how affordable!  Each set is $24.99 and currently available exclusively at www.educationalinsights.com.
