Over a year ago I posted about a couple of cool new toys that were being crowdfunded by a company called, “Play-i.” They were adorable robots that could be controlled with bluetooth devices and even programmed using block programming.
A lot has happened in a year. The company is now called Wonder Workshop. The robots are now called Dash and Dot. But the appearance and functionality are the same.
And they are finally available.
I haven’t had a chance to review the pair yet, but they are already getting quite a bit of press around the web. I decided to post about them today because, if you are interested in purchasing from Wonder Workshop, December 16th is the deadline for receiving your product by Christmas.
What I see looks very promising – a chance for children to code, problem solve, and create with cute robotic pals. These aren’t Lego robots (but you can purchase brick connectors to make them adaptable to Lego bricks and Minstorms). They are playful and full of personality, and will have great appeal to the younger set.
See what you think!
