Dot Does Not Move So, first things first. Dot doesn’t move. For that, you need to buy the Dot Dash.I should note that nowhere on the product page does it say that Dot moves, but it’s a robot. I have that layperson expectation that a robot will move. It doesn’t walk. It doesn’t roll. It doesn’t move.Keeping that in mind, though, this is a pretty neat robot. (Yes, it’s still a robot!)Your child will need a device. Mine set up the app on her iPad. You can also set it up on Kindle and Android devices. Using the app, your child can code Dot to do all sorts of fun (and loud) things. The kit includes 20 project cards. With these, your child can easily code Dot to do pranks, to play games, and even guard their room.You also get all sorts of accessories to customize Dot. These are more for fun than for function. You can make Dot look a certain way to match the coding you do.Using the app, your child can also experiment with the coding…

ALMOST perfect… I am a big fan of the Dash and Dot robots. We started with Dot when they first came out under the premise that he was so cheap that even if it wasn’t great, we wouldn’t be out a lot of money. He turned out to be great and we ended up out a lot of money though, as we had to get Dash and some of the kits to go along with them because our kids were enjoying them so much and learning so much.That’s where this Creativity Kit comes in – to save you some money on the kits. By getting Dot and the Creativity kit as a package, you save a good bit of money. The kit is nicely packaged with an excellent unboxing experience. The “start here” card makes it easy even if you have never seen Dash or Dot and it is also great even if you have seen them.There are 20 project cards that are like recipes to tell you what projects you can do with Dot and the provided goodies, everything from magic eightball to Dot Potato and more. It is a really well-done, nice kit. And most of…

Fantastic gadget, it REALLY is fun and educational. The apps are cluttered and really need to be run on a tablet, not a phone. OK, this little guy is amazingly cute, especially after he’s dressed up. Or she. It’s a little robot and androgynous – the voice can pass for a boy or girl.I’ll start off with why 4 stars – the app. It’s next to impossible to use with a cell phone, and most of the compatible devices ARE cell phones. You need a tablet. Otherwise the text is too small, and when “programming” the Dot, it’s next to impossible to drag connections/commands – way too much screen clutter and teeny tiny fonts and icons. Whatever device you use has to have Bluetooth 4 or higher, AND needs to be pretty beefy. I tried this on a $50 tablet, dual core. Would not even run. Tried it on a $75 quad core older tablet – ran so slow it was impossible to use. So you need a decent piece of newer tech. We tried my GF’s cell phone – a $100 Boost Mobile smart phone – and it worked great. The screen was way too small, but it worked. You really need at LEAST 7″ of screen space. 8 or more would be…
