Dot Creativity Kit

Review date: 11/01/2018

Meet Dot. This DIY kit is the fun baby sister robot to Dash and Cue. A little green ball you can code, dress up, and accessorize. It might not have all the features its older robot siblings have, but it did win a Parent's Choice award last year. Plus, it comes with a pirate's hat! Arggh.

What could happen if something goes wrong

The app for the toy accesses the microphone on your phone or tablet, so if hacked, as with any app that accesses the microphone on your phone or tablet, there’s the potential someone could listen in. We have no reason to believe that this app is any more susceptible to hacking than any other app.
