Thanks Keurig for the free packs for this review. I am really enjoying the K550. The regular coffee and tea is great. I was worried that the tea would taste like coffee, but that is not a problem at all. The milky k-cups don't really work. The controls could be clearer, it is not really clear what the different settings are for. Also, it is annoying that some cups, including many official keurig cups won't work.
The Hot Dots numbers & counting are a great mid-level intro to numbers and counting. This set is great for children who have a basic grasp of counting and can identify at least a few numbers visually. My son began using this set when he could visually identify numbers 1-5 and verbally count up to 15. I think that, unless you are an extremely patient parent, if you tried to introduce these cards to a child with no number knowledge you'd just get a very frustrated child. Ace, the Talking, Teaching Dog Pen doesn't come with the set, but can be purchased separately, and is very fun for the kids...sometimes too fun. Occasionally, when my son doesn't feel like doing anything he'll just press all the wrong answers because he thinks the incorrect sounds are funny. *I was sent this product at no cost to myself, in order to provide a review of it on my blog, Oh So Savvy Mom.
