Cute and engaging toy done very well; some improvements could make it much better. Dot is cute and for a robot that doesn’t move, she’s got quite the personality. (To me, the voice and name sound feminine, but technically Dot is ungendered.) The software and hardware are generally well done, however there are some sticking points that make it less than ideal.If you have the money, go for Dash over Dot. I think Dash can do everything Dot can do and also move. But Dot is surprisingly fun on her own.The good:1) Dot looks kind of cool with the lights in the “eye” and “ears”.2) The software clearly has a lot of thought put into it. It is graphically great for kids to look at.3) There are many options for sounds, lights, and links. Robot will respond to sound, voice, tilting, and button presses. Random elements are also included. You can even record your own sounds and use that.4) There is a great deal of thought going into the training exercises. I think there are still some bugs/improvements to be made, but it is…

He loved it so much it only took him 3 days and then upgraded to Dash

Customer Video Review Length:: 0:31 Mins

Customer Video Review Length:: 0:31 Mins I bought this for my 6 year old to keep him involved with stem. He saw dash and I made a deal that if he finished all the quest I would upgrade.  He loved it so much it only took him 3 days to complete the 50+ quests.  He wakes up and is eager to play with dot and uses it as a night light in his room. 6 year old approved and loved by daddy.We added Dash and the launcher to the Mix and the fun continues!

Our Autistic child loves Dot, but we’ve experienced some connection problems Our 9-year-old Autistic child loves this robot. There are several iPad apps that he can use to interact with and program the robot. He loves it!Even though Dot is not mobile, (Dash is the mobile robot.) there are endless things you can do with Dot: sounds (including your own), lights, puzzles, etc. Using the various apps are the key to making the most out of Dot.We have experienced a few problems with keeping him connected to the iPad, so that’s why I gave Dot 4 stars instead of 5. To resolve the connection problem, we just turn Dot off and on again. The Connection issue is definitely related to Dot and not the iPad since we performed diagnostics on the iPad to be sure. Distance was not the issue either since we had Dot sitting less than a foot away from the iPad.
