Computers are such an intrinsic part of our everyday lives that most of us take them for granted. But, did you ever wish you could learn computer code? That’s right, like the guys that started it all? Maybe your kids? Wouldn’t you love for your kid to be the next, Steve Jobs or the inventor of Microsoft, multi-billionaire, Bill Gates? As we all know, coding and programming are the languages of the future and it’s increasingly important that kids understand and can speak these languages. The question is how can your children learn these skills if you can’t teach them? Are robots for kids the answer?
What if there was a tool, and a fun tool at that, with the ability to teach your kid’s this every increasingly important language? Well, let me introduce you to my new best buds, Dash and Dot. Dash and Dot are literally, the wave of the future when it comes to kid centered technology. This dynamic duo are real robots that teach your kids, ages 5-12, programming and coding through play. Because kids learn through play, they are more likely to retain what they learned if it is hands on and something that will hold their interest. We know how short a kid’s attention span is, right?
With Dash and Dot, you get REAL ROBOTS that can dance, race, play games, sing, and even respond to objects and voice commands. Just in time for your holiday gifting for your kids, Dash and Dot from Wonder Workshop are hot, hot, hot! Just think; in just a few steps, your child can program these two cutie pies to do all sorts of fun stuff. What is so genius, is your kids are actually learning the basics of programming and problem solving without even knowing it!
For the adults, you will love that Dash and Dot is ready to go straight from the box. There are two styles available that come with 100’s of games, programs and missions for hours of learning. And because Dash and Dot are designed to grow with your child, you are making a sound investment in your child’s educational future! Dash and Dot have built in tutorials in the available apps, so they are learning the program and controlling the robots from the app. And if you are not tech savvy, don’t worry! You do not need to know programming! There are 5 free apps available on the Apple Store or Google Play. It is recommended you check to verify your smartphone or tablet is compatible. Just head over to Make Wonder and check at the compatibility page. Dash and Dot are available on the Make Wonder website, makewonder.com, Amazon.com and Apple Retail stores.
Who are you buying Dash and Dot for this holiday?
We have Dot and Dash and my kids love them! I’ve always loved the idea of them so I was excited when my kids received them. They are so great for STEM. My kids definitely understand science more and they love watching How It Was Made and other shows with my husband. I really think it’s because their love of code grew from Dot and Dash.

My three kids would really love these. However, my husband might enjoy them a little more haha!
Oh my goodness, talk about tech for today and tomorrow. Ha! My kids would love this and I am sure it would help them through the years. Thanks so much for sharing.

This is really cool! I would have even loved to have one as a kid. Too bad that was a really long time ago, haha. This would make a great birthday gift for my son.

Those are majorly cool! My boys would love these robots.
I just finished shopping for my son for Christmas. I wish I knew about this because he’s really kind of interested in programming. This would be perfect!
It’s amazing how far technology has come. I like that these robots grow with your child.
I love toys that allow kids to use their brain! What a fun, entertaining, and practical gift!
That is such an awesome idea! There’s nothing better to get kinds interested in learning than making it fun, and these interactive little robots certainly do that.
