      Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots® Jr. Princess Fairy Tales Interactive Storybook Set:

      The princess "wand" pen is my daughters favorite part. She loves all the story books and how interactive they are. Not only does it help her work on her reading skills but it is also teaching her other stills like how to use the pen, problem solving, and the basics of how a story works. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with small children. It is one of my kids' favorite things to "play" with and its educational.

      Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots® Jr. Princess Fairy Tales Interactive Storybook Set:

      Do your children love Fairy Tales? I know mine do so that is why they are loving the Hot Dots Jr. Princess Fairy Tales Interactive Story Book set. As a mom I am pleased with this product because for less than $20 you get 4 books which is more than similar interactive pen/book style products. My 5 year old loves Rapunzel so it is great that she gets to interactive, and answer questions with the magical wand (takes 2 AA batteries not inc.)

      This set would make an amazing gift for a 3-6 year old child who is learning to read and comprehend stories. We are very pleased with this particular set!

        As a preschool teacher, my girls LOVED this! They all wanted a turn with the princess wand and loved the stories. I wish there was a little more reading activity with the wand since most of my kids aren't reading on their own yet but it is still a fun and interactive way to introduce young children to reading!

            My 4 year old loves this set! She is crazy about princesses and loves when I read the stories to her. I love that she is engaged and learning math and reading skills. The best part is that she doesn't even know that she's learning. It's just fun to her. My son always want to read with us and they take turns using the magic wand. That is their favorite part.

              Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots® Jr. Princess Fairy Tales Interactive Storybook Set:

              Even my 5 year old twin boys love the Hot Dot's Jr Princess Fairy Tales set! I received the Hot Dot's Jr Princess Fairy Tales set to review in my Pre-K classroom but before I could even put it in my bag to take to school, my boys INSISTED that we open it and interact with it.

              I must say, my boys really enjoyed the stories that the set contained; Rapunzel, The Frog Prince, The Princess and the Pea, and The Twelve Dancing Princesses. The stories do need to be read aloud to them but as you read along, the children are to be encouraged to answer the questions that are on each page. The children answer using the interactive wand and listen as it provides instant feedback. The wand flashes, talks, and plays music!

              I am very pleased with the quality of the box. It is very durable and has a strong handle allowing it to be carried and stacked by the kiddos without getting easily destroyed. The four books are also durable and laminated. They are very nicely laid out with colorful pages!

              I would definitely recommend this set, along with all of the other Hot Dots Jr sets. You will NOT be disappointed!

                I was given this product in exchange for writing a review. All opinions are my own, however.

                I use this kit at work teaching young children. Both boys and girls love the Hot Dots wand, and are willing to work on the educational concepts included on each page in order to watch it turn green. The activities vary in difficulty, which keeps kids coming back to the books as they master new skills. I would love to see a few dots on each page that non-readers could do on their own, in addition to the guided tasks.

                  I received Hot Dots Jr Princess Fairy Tales for free in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.

                  We already have enjoyed our Hot Dots Jr. Pre-K math set, so we were excited to test this new set out for review. Our daughter loves Rapunzel but usually isn't interested in other princess stories. She loved this entire set. She was excited to explore the different tasks and was adamant on doing it herself. Hot Dots Jr. makes it easy for little hands and fun for them to learn, all the while making me one happy Mama. I think the wand is a nice touch for this set as well.

                    Comments about Educational Insights Hot Dots® Jr. Princess Fairy Tales Interactive Storybook Set:

                    My daughter loves everything princess, so I was excited to give her the Hot Dots, Jr. Princess Fairy Tales collection. I am so happy I did. She is only beginning to read, but she loves to look at the pictures and tell herself the stories. Even though she can't read the questions on each page, she has figured out what to look for. She can now answer the questions by herself. The talking pen tells if she is right or wrong with either words, music, sounds or a combination.

                    The box itself is quite sturdy and she loves carrying around the pen and the books to every room in the house. I never dreamed that this set would provide so many hours of creative play while allowing her to develop pre-reading skills at the same time.

                      I received this Hot Dots product from Educational Insights to conduct a review. All opinions of this product are my own.

                      My daughter loves books. She will spend hours sitting down with a book in front of her looking at the pictures and trying to read all of the words or having me read to her. That being said I love sets that allow her to be interactive with her books. Hot Dots Jr. Princess Fairy Tales combined my daughter's love of books with my love of interaction with the story. In this set there are four- 24 page stories for children to read. Each book has eleven learning activities. The stories included are Rapunzel, The Princess and the Pea, The Princess and the Frog, and the Twelve Dancing Princesses. I think that it is so great that these books include less classic stories for children to enjoy. I love that if I am busy for a bit my daughter can take her time looking through these books and enjoying activities as she does. I would high recommend Hot Dots products!
