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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Oh no! Please don't throw it way. We can help! We're very sorry that your granddaughter is experiencing issues with the pen. Could you please email us at CS@educationalinsights.com or call 800-995-4436? We’ll gladly take it back or send out a replacement. Thank you.

Most of my pens work

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.
Merchant response: I'm very sorry for your inconvenience. Has this issue been resolved? If not, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can replace any pens you may be having trouble with.Best regards,LeslieEducational Insights

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.
