This starter app acts as a remote control for the Dash and Dot robots, giving kids an introduction to the cool things the robots can be programmed to do with the more advanced apps. The robots are cute and lifelike with their sounds and expressions, and kids get to control their eye and head movements, their movements, their sounds, and their lights. It's delightful for even the youngest kids, who may not be ready to handle coding blocks just yet, and it's still smart fun for older kids who are just getting started with Dash and Dot. Though the robots are prohibitively expensive for many families, the potential for learning and fun is great, and perhaps the prices will fall over time.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
