Short-lived fun

The pen worked for only a few months before indicating every answer was incorrect. I tried calling the customer service department but the phone prompts don't work correctly - they route to incorrect departments. (Surprise?) My son loved this toy while it was working but now it's useless. I'm not in...see moreof the reviewer's review

Our own has worked great for some time, but now it says everything is incorrect. I have changed the batteries, but it still isn't working. My kids love this product! I hope I can figure out how to fix it!see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a great learning tool but it is also fun. She loves doing them over and over. We keep adding cards and she is never bored. Even if you have a problem, this company stands behind their product.see moreof the reviewer's review

Love the Hot Dots Jr., but HATE the dog pen that came with it. My little one is not able to use it because she picks the correct answer, but it keeps telling her it's incorrect! I've tried changing the batteries, wiping the tip off as suggested in another post and nothing works. Very frustrating!!!!see moreof the reviewer's review

My daughter is only two and a half, but she loves using this "big kid" interactive tool. She is so proud to be able to go through the Hot Dots cards using the pen (almost) by herself. We have the Hot Dots Jr. colors set and plan to invest in others. Also, when the pen randomly stopped functioning (a...see moreof the reviewer's review

I saw this and thought how engaging! My two year old was excited to get this home. We opened and he did about 20 flash cards without being bored. Overall it's a very educational item...if it works. Day 3 of trying to use "doggy" he started telling my son all his right answers were wrong I took the p...see moreof the reviewer's review

Hi there I bought a set a and an extra pen for my pre-k class. They loved them and so did I! Sad to say both pens stopped working within two months of buying them. I was very bummed! I changed the batteries and no luck:( I was told that the children had to be gentle with them which they were. What e...see moreof the reviewer's review

WE love the idea behind using these, we had some older products, a set of card and the kids broke the "pen" that came with that. WE have 3-4 of these kicking around now and it's nice to have some extras as the cards are useless without them. It's really nice to be able to set them up with the work a...see moreof the reviewer's review
