We are loving the Wonder Workshop Dash Robot. Dash is a real robot suggested for children ages 8 and up. However, we think its very appropriate for ages 5 and up. Dash is responsive to its world and your child can bring it to life with several free apps available on iOS and Android.
Dash comes with hundreds of exciting coding adventures and projects available in Wonder and Blockly apps. Use your Apple or Android smart phone or tablet to program Dash to move, dance, light up, make sounds, avoid obstacles, and even react to their voice. With the revolutionary free app Wonder, kids can program Dash to be the real robot pet, pal or sidekick of their dreams. No instructions needed!
The Wonder and Blockly apps feature built-in challenge tutorials that teach your child how to program Dash from the very beginning of each program! Forget robot camp – you can easily learn Blockly and Wonder right in the app!
Dash comes fully assembled and no batteries are required. It also comes with a USB charging cable and two Building Brick Connectors to extend play with LEGO® and LEGO® Technic compatible bricks. There are also several fun accessories like a launcher that turns your Dash Robot into a projectile hurling machine.
Wonder Workshop Dash Robot has won several awards including the 2015 National Parenting Gold, Time to Play Magazine 2015 Holiday Most Wanted List, Opening Minds Innovation for Schools, and ISTE Best of Show for Schools
