School is about to end and with it comes months of relaxating and no “real” daily schedules. Even thought we will spend many hours lazing or playing in the pool we will still be learning and one way is with some fun educational toys. Educational Insights is a company based in sunny SoCal and includes a team of experts who pour their passion for inspiring kids into playful products packed with serious educational value. For Lil Sis who will be going into Kindergarten in the Fall one great way to do that is with the Hot Dots Jr. Succeeding in School with Highlights Set. This toy reinforces the fundamentals and prepares kids for success with this interactive Hot Dots learning set that includes skill specific lessons, a parent guide, and Ollie—the Talking, Teaching Owl pen.
Product Features & Benefits:
- 80 Richly illustrated, oversized, double-sided cards feature 160 lessons (double-sided cards)
- Lessons cover reading, math, science, and more
- Interactive Ollie pen with lights and 17 speech and sound effects
Lil Sis absolutely loves this toy! She is only 5 and not reading yet so I work with her with while she is playing with it. Per the instructions do make sure to use Ollie upright instead of at an angle. His eyes turn green for the correct answer and red for the wrong answer. Super easy to use and lots of fun!
This particular toy is perfect for reinforcing the skills that lead to kindergarten and first grade success with engaging, interactive, multi-subject area learning. Keep kids entertained this summer with toys that will also teach them a thing or two! School will be starting back up before you know it and it is nice to give them a jump on learning.
