The Miposaur is one awesome robot dinosaur pet! You can train or play with this remote control dinosaur by controlling it through a mobile app on a smart phone or tablet.
Check out this funny video to learn how the Miposaur works AND to see if Batman, Superman, or The Flash keeps the Miposaur:
Will the Miposaur be on your wishlist this Christmas?

While most drone pilots know that they shouldn't fly their drones too close to animals, some pilots don't do that. These drone pilots hope to get good close-up video of the animals running or flying. But sometimes, the risk isn't worth it when the animals destroy the drones...
Check out this video to watch the drones get attacked by animals:
The Parrot Rolling Spider is a toy drone that is small, but has great speed & stability. It can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet to turn or do acrobatic flips. Keep in mind it can be used indoors & outdoors too. And since it has a small camera in it, it can take photos while flying up high. This drone is so easy to learn how to fly... well, you don't have to take my word for it.
Just watch this video to see what these kids think about learning to fly a drone in a few minutes:
The Parrot Rolling Spider is a great drone for kids! Do you think you could fly a toy drone yet? If you already know how to fly a drone, what advice would you give to someone learning how to fly a drone?
The Kid Galaxy robot is perfect for kids under 5 years old to get started with robotics early. Preschoolers will learn how to control a simple remote-controlled robot & also enjoy the robots' blinking eyes, spinning parts, & sounds while the robots move around the floor.
Check out this video to watch the Kid Galaxy robot in action:
Here's a great video with a review from a mom about the Kid Galaxy Robot for her little ones:
Do you think your preschoolers will like these robots?
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:
Check out this video to see a real kid show us his robot playing the xylophone & how he created the code to control the robot on his tablet:
Do you know how to program robots yet? If not, do the Dash & Dot robots seem fun & easy to learn?
