Dash STEM Learning & Educational Toys by Wonder Workshop’s! @BestBuy, #ad, @makewonder #dashrobot

Technology has changed so much, if you take a moment to just look at all of your gadgets, like cellphones, computers, toys and more you’ll see just how advanced those items are today! In a world in which we live in technology has become very important, even to STEM education.

STEM has become an education curriculum course now in many school. If you’re not aware what STEM stands for let me share with you: STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math in which many products are produced and designed to teach our children to develop core skills in those areas. My kids have been learning more about STEM and have joined in with many other students working in many programs, on toys, devices and activities that has taught them about coding.

So when Best Buy sent us the Dash Robot by Wonder Workshop, my kids were excited to learn how to program Dash!

Now, Dash is a real robot for children ages 6years and up that will teach a child how to code while they are having fun. Using the Free Apple, Android or Kindle apps to program Dash to move, dance, light up, make sounds, avoid obstacles, and even react to your child’s voice.  The great thing about Dash too is there are several different apps available for different types of play for your kids.

I couldn’t help but play around with Dash myself first, but you better believe my boys were standing by waiting to get their hands on Dash. I could see the excitement on both boys faces, Jordan the youngest had already mentioned how he was going to interact with Dash!

Well, soon the boys turned Dash on and off Dash went, talking, rolling around, turning his head, changing colors and all geared up to play!

Now, remember Dash presents your kids with hundreds of projects, challenges, and puzzles as well as endless possibilities for freeform play. He works by connecting to apps that you download onto a compatible device.  The app will help you control dash and move him around. Dash has many coding skills that will help your child learn and grow. The boys spent a lot of time playing with Dash and they even added some of Dash accessories to help him do more tricks like launch a ball!

Dash also has a few other accessories like building blocks to help engineer and he also come with a Dash’s Launcher and Dash’s Xylophone. Jalen and Jordan had Dash rolling everywhere, making all types of sounds/animal noises and even changing his appearance. They tried to launch the ball but for some reason Jalen iPhone had a problem with the app so Jordan launched the launcher manually. I told Jalen not to worry for I would uninstall the app and reinstall it, we always sometimes encounter internet problems with our WiFi in my home.

The Launcher is connected to the Wonder App that can be download onto any compatible device, it also has some accessories that your kids can target to knock apart. They boys played all day with Dash, they even had him rolling around in the kitchen. Jordan was standing by to try out the Xylophone, he’s the music kid in our family so for him to be able to compose his own songs would be great!

Each accessory is very easily attachable to Dash plus Dash has many other accessories that Mom and Dad can purchase at Best Buy!
