Hot Dots BrainBox Let's Learn! About Our World comes complete with the popular Hot Dots Talking Pen. Children are motivated as the fun Talking Pen responds to answer choices for self-checking, providing instant feedback, gently redirecting incorrect answers and congratulating correct ones.

Gary Wyatt, Chairman and founder, Green Board Game Company added: "BrainBox is one of the leading visual observation games in the world, available in 23 languages and in 60 countries. In linking Brainbox content with the Hot Dots range, a valuable learning resource will be made available to millions of children around the globe."

Children learn about the world by studying an image before flipping over the page and answering three multiple-choice questions. As they learn geographical facts they also develop memory and observation skills.

Flags features different flags from around the world, testing children's recognition skills and knowledge of the countries they represent, whilst Places broadens children's awareness of countries around the world through identifying landmarks and iconic objects. Capitals & Currencies helps children learn about the capital cities of different countries and the currencies and coinage associated with each.
