      Comments about Hot Dots® Pen:

      The pen was part of a Hot Dots gift to my granddaughter. Her brother, age 6, picked up the pen and tried to write on a piece of paper. The felt piece on the tip must have elongated from his pressure on the paper. The pen called every answer "wrong" on the worksheets. So, we could never use the Hot Dots gift. My daughter may try to buy a new pen, but I think the gift will end up in the garbage due to the cost of a second pen.

      Comments about Hot Dots® Pen:

      My students love using the hot dot pens but unfortunately it is a gamble on if yours will work or not. 7 out of my 8 pens work just fine but one has always detected all answers as wrong. I will have to go to the store and replace it because the students really love them...just frustrating.

              Comments about Hot Dots® Pen:

              My daughter has lots of fun flipping through each card and understood how to use this easily. This also helped with attention and coordination when positioning of the pen. We just wish the pen would fit in the little container that the hot dots flash cards came in.
