Dash and Dot robots are simple, cute, & fun robots that can be used at home to teach young kids (ages 5 & up) the basics of robotics. In addition, they are a great first robot to learn how to code or program on a mobile phone or tablet so that they can control the robot. What I really like about these robots is that there aren't many construction pieces (e.g. LEGOs), so you can really focus on learning the basics of programming a robot before you buy another robot kit with construction pieces. The Dash & Dot Wonder Pack is a great buy at $280.
Dash and Dot robots are so fun that there is an online "Dot & Dash Show" with 10 YouTube episodes. Each episode shows what you can make with these robots!
Check out the first episode of the Dash & Dot robot show in this video:

Do you know how to program robots yet? If not, do the Dash & Dot robots seem fun & easy to learn?
