Dash & Dot

"Kids can define how they want to play. Whether your child is into having make-believe tea parties, building elaborate forts, or adventuring with friends, Dash & Dot will be there every step of the way. Empower your child to program Dash & Dot into anything they imagine. It's a big world out there, and Dash & Dot are ready to help you explore. Program them to squeal when you pick them up, navigate around sharp corners, or be on the lookout for approaching siblings or pets. We set a low floor but a high ceiling for coding. Blockly is a drag-and-drop programming language that snaps together like puzzle pieces. Start by sending simple commands, learn programming concepts as you play, and progress to creating more complex algorithms. Add bricks (including LegoTM) to them with building brick connectors. Transforming Dash & Dot is easy with accessories and a small dose of creativity."

Other Information about Dash & Dot
  • Do NOT pick Dash up by the head (where the eye is), it messes up the way the head turns.
  • Charging Dash & Dot 
    • There is an orange USB cable included in the box that will charge both robots when connected to a USB port on a computer/laptop or USB wall adapter.
    • You can use any USB to micro USB cable to charge the robots.
    • The cable that is included is designed to enable the best charging time.
    • When a robot is at zero battery life, it takes approximately 60 - 90 minutes to fully charge.
    • The micro USB on the robot will illuminate until fully charged.
  • Dot’s “Legs” - Dot’s base part that looks like the legs come off. Just pull hard. It turns Dot into a ball shape.
  • Volume Control - There is no volume control at this time.
  • Device compatibility information - Dash & Dot won’t work with iPad 2 or older because they don’t have Bluetooth 4.0/LE. The company that makes them doesn’t have a way to work around this.
