My children love the Hot Dots alphabet cards. I am a pediatric occupational therapist and it is a great activity to work on grasping, visual discrimination, letter recognition, form constancy, and visual motor integration skills. For parents it is a great activity to work on independent learning and play, as the pen provides feedback as to whether or not the chosen answer is correct. My kids love when it lights up and makes a sound. If you want to do this activity in a quiet area, you can even turn the sound off and just see red or green lights to notify the child if the chosen answer is correct. The only thing I would change would be to have an option to only provide positive feedback (lights and sound) when the chosen answer is correct versus providing lights and sound for incorrect answers as well. I believe this would encourage increased attention to the task in a more desperate attempt to receive the auditory and visual feedback on the first attempt. Overall, I would recommend this product!

My 5-1/2 year old found this fun at first, but then realized it was too easy for her. I think it would have been great for her up to 5 years old. The box says its for ages 3-6, but I think that's stretching it. Although, I guess it depends on the child, how many years of preschool he/she had, and how much the parent works with the child at home.

      Comments about Hot Dots Jr. Card Set Numbers & Counting - 36 per set:

      These hot dots cards are a wonderful way to learn the alphabet. This product is a great educational tool to use at home or in a PreK classroom. The set creates many useful teaching moments that benefit children who are learning the alphabet. My children love using the hot dots pens with different hot dots sets and the Alphabet Cards are a great addition to our collection. My younger child (4) was given simple directions in the beginning and was able to work independently using this set to practice the alphabet. The directions were simple enough that when he needed help, my older child (6) could read it to him and give him assistance. My children already knew their alphabet when we tried this product, but they still enjoyed using it to practice their knowledge. Children who don't know the alphabet or letter sounds yet would benefit most from the learning experience if parents did the set alongside them. I would recommend this product. *I was provided this product in exchange for an honest review.*

          I really like how this product gives me an additional way to teach in my classroom! The cards are great for helping the children to review and in some cases learn to identify various colors! The only con that I have found in this product is that the cards can be bent or damaged easily. I wonder if they can be laminated!!??? The children in my classroom like the counting card set most of all!

          I really love using all of the Hot Dots Jr. products in my classroom because the children use these products with great ease and not much instruction. The Shapes card set does seem to be the most simple for the children so they quickly switch to another set of the cards but they are still very useful for matching and recognition!

            Comments about Hot Dots Jr. Card Set Numbers & Counting - 36 per set:

            The Hot Dots numbers & counting are a great mid-level intro to numbers and counting. This set is great for children who have a basic grasp of counting and can identify at least a few numbers visually. My son began using this set when he could visually identify numbers 1-5 and verbally count up to 15. I think that, unless you are an extremely patient parent, if you tried to introduce these cards to a child with no number knowledge you'd just get a very frustrated child.
            Ace, the Talking, Teaching Dog Pen doesn't come with the set, but can be purchased separately, and is very fun for the kids...sometimes too fun. Occasionally, when my son doesn't feel like doing anything he'll just press all the wrong answers because he thinks the incorrect sounds are funny.
            *I was sent this product at no cost to myself, in order to provide a review of it on my blog, Oh So Savvy Mom.

            Cartridge Comparison Guide
            • Cartridge Types
            • Ink & Toner Basics
            • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
            Cartridge Type
            Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
            Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
            Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
            Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
            What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
            Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
            Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
            Material Liquid ink Dry powder
            How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
            Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
            Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
            Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
            Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
