If I would have known that HDMI cables make a huge difference I would have brought these a long time ago. I'm not a tech person, but found them easy to install. I will order another set for my tv in the bedroom. The price can't be beat. Have told a number of friends and family members to pick these up.
TV arrived safe and sound. Delivery took awhile.....Not sure why but the set sat in a warehouse for 4 days after it was picked up in LA before it was delivered. The picture quality is crisp and clear with alot of depth, the sound quality no so much, very tinny sounding. Tried adjusting the settings, but still poor. Thankfully I am using a sound bar, so this isn't an issue. Good buy for the money.
The cards are both simple and complex so they can grow with your child. For example there are cards where you have to complete the sequence of a boy dropping a plate, seeing it in two pieces and then gluing it back together – the first spot is blank and you have to choose the boy dropping a plate out of the three choices. It is relatively easy from the choices but it does make kids think. Then there are shapes and patterns to complete. My boys are 3 and 4 and while many of the cards are a little hard for them they are picking up quickly. The whole patterns and sequencing set great though for Pre-K as my boys are just learning that in preschool now. So I am hoping they will be ahead if not at least in line with the rest of the class. Hot Dots really are a fun yet educational product for kids. I also love how the Patterns and Sequencing set comes in a nice cardboard box with handle to take with you on the go! You can then fill it with other Hot Dot card sets or stick the Hot Dot pen in it! Overall, I really like the Hot Dots concept and will be adding to our collection!
