The programming side was maybe a little too complicated and didn't hold interest that well, but maybe that will change soon. Overall pretty satisfied with them, but they didn't blow anyone away.
The iPad app "Go" allows a kid to control the brightness, color, and pattern of both robots' lights simultaneously, as well as Dash's movements and sounds. My nine-year-old grandson prefers to use Go as a remote control for Dash. He gets Dash to perform maneuvers that would be very complicated to program.
The "Blocky" iPad app is a kid-friendly graphical programming environment that allows Dash to be programmed to perform any of its actions. Blocky provides a menu of action types (Start, Drive, Look, Light, Sound, and, Control). The Control menu provides ways to make Dash repeat actions until some condition is met, as well as ways to make Dash perform an action only when a condition is met. For example, it's simple to tell Dash to move forward until it detects an obstacle and then to say "Hi!"
The internal battery of each robot can be recharged by connecting the supplied USB cable to an iPad power supply or a computer's USB port. When plugged in, Dash will move only its head. When left idle for a few minutes, Dot yawns loudly and goes to sleep. I suppose Dash does something similar.
These are very cleverly-designed toys that will provide hours of entertainment and teach substantial programming skills.
