We received the Hot Dots Jr. - Getting Ready for School set. First I want to say the pen it comes with "Ace" - the Talking, Teaching Dog is super cute.
The cards that this set comes with really covers all of the basics, letters, numbers, shapes and patterns.
My girls love this set. They really liked quizzing each other on the concepts. They have also played school with this set - with one child as the teacher and the other as the student.
I love that this has been seen as more of a game than a learning tool. They are having fun but learning at the same time. I also love that this can be used individually as the pen tells them if they have choosen the correct answer. You can also use it together for guided learning.
