Met DASH! You can find him sitting on the shelves of your local Best Buy store. That big center eye will look at you with almost a pity stare because he needs a friend. He knows that kids love making friends so he comes with a free app that your kids can easily learn to use so he can become the robot friend of your child’s imagination.
The first thing your new friend needs when he gets home is a name. The first task in the app after you download it is to state his name and my son thought long and hard about this. He loves Pokemon, soccer and sports so given all the possibilities he named his new friend, Dash. I did ask him how he possibly came up with such a name and he said, “…it is obvious he wants to be called Dash so I want to name him Dash. It’s all he knows.” That makes sense I suppose.
Just as no one would ever move to a new home without some luggage, this Wonder Workshop DASH comes in his box with a charging cord and 2 building brick connectors that can attach to his sides. You need a compatible device such as a bluetooth enabled phone or tablet with access to Google Play or the Apple Store for the app download.
DASH has so many fun features to help your child develop, learn, create and problem solve. The main goal for your child’s new robot is to introduce your child to the world of robotics. He (or she) responds to voice commands and can sing and dance on command. Children as young as preschool age can begin to learn coding with the Path app. Then as they grow, they move on with Wonder Workshop for bigger tasks with the help of apps and accessories.
This Wonder Workshop robot will be a hit this holiday season. And f you are a fan of shopping at Best Buy like I am, then you must stop over and visit DASH. In my Best Buy store he sits on the shelves near the video games with the other app-enabled toys. While there you will see additional accessories that can make being DASH’s friend even more fun and engaging. My son has the launcher and xylophone on his wish list for Dash. The accessories are only optional so once you buy DASH you don’t need to acquire additional costs unless you choose. Visit Best Buy today to learn more about the Wonder Workshop DASH Robot.
