A New Update to Blockly!
As part of our ongoing commitment to bring you the best experience with our apps and our Dash & Dot robots, we’ve made three key improvements to our Blockly app based on your feedback to us:
- Sound Recording* – now you can record sounds on your tablet and use them in Dash & Dot!
- More control on Dash’s movements – Dash can now turn in more angles and drive further with one block! Dash also knows when getting picked up or stuck.
- Easier programming for younger learners – we’ve overhauled our controls so that now when you select a piece of code, you can visually see how it works on Dash & Dot! This is a much more intuitive way to code!
Check out our challenge of the week involving new features in Blockly to create your own superhero robot!

Loving the Dash & Dot Show, programming challenge of the week, and magazine? We now have a COPPA compliant email list for kids to get all the learning and fun directly in their inbox! Sign up with your child’s email address here.
As a parent, you will always get a copy of the emails we send to them, and we will never share your child’s email address. Please email us at email@example.com if you have any questions!
* Because your child’s privacy is extremely important to us, we do not save the sounds you record to our servers. Sounds are saved to your device temporarily and on your robot until you record a new sound over it. Deleted or overwritten sounds cannot be restored.
