As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.
My rating of Hot Dots Jr. Getting Ready for School Set
As a teacher, I was really excited to find and use this product. My son LOVES the dog pen as it makes its noises. This product is VERY much all about academics....but that's what is great about it! The only two downfalls that I have found with this product is that sometimes the dog pen makes a 'wrong' sound when it should actually be right. You have to make sure that you are holding the pen a certain way and are smack dab on the dot. The other being the fact that my son already knew most of what the activity cards were teaching, so it didn't take him long to get through them. The ages say 3-6 but my son knew most of these before he turned 3. But I looked at it as a good review and a confidence booster in his cognitive ability. I would definitely recommend the Hot Dots (but maybe at an earlier age)....children don't even realize they are learning!
My daughter loves playing with her new hot dots kit. Her face lights up when she gets the answer correct. She is determined to find the correct answer if she answered incorrect the first time. This has strengthen her knowledge of letters, numbers, shapes, & colors in a fun, independent way. Thanks Hot Dots!
