Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Xylo for Dash Robot is a free app but requires the robot Dash and the xylophone addition, which retail for $149.99 for the robot and $39.99 for the xylophone pack. A suite of five apps can be used with the robot, teaching kids robotics and programming. The robot requires a device with a Bluetooth connection and must be connected to the app each time kids play. Kids can program moves for the robot to complete as it bangs out a song on the attached xylophone. If kids also have the robot pair, Dot gives a light show as the music plays. The long but easy-to-read privacy policy details the kinds of information collected and shared.

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Dash is adorable and human-like, the xylophone is brightly colored, and the songs are familiar. It’s all really fun until the xylophone gets off balance and out of tune.

The Support Level for Xylo for Dash Robot is about a 2 out of 5.

Kids can create their own original songs to extend the fun, but the movement options are limited.
