The xylophone attachment for the Dash Robot is great for kids who like music and want to make their own and learn about composition. Everything is controlled from a free app called “Xylo”, available on the App Store or Google Play. It can be used along with the lights to create quite an elaborate show. The striker attaches to Dash’s head and it moves its head up and down to play notes on the xylophone. It sounds great and isn’t so loud as to get annoying, the sound is actually quite pleasant.
The Xylo app includes a number of songs that you can start playing right away or you can remix any of those songs in any way you like. You also have the option of creating your own songs from scratch. The types of songs you can create is a bit limited but there is still enough variety to create and endless amount of catchy tunes. This is one of those things that parents might catch themselves enjoying just as much as their children. Overall, this is a must have addition for anyone looking to expand the functionality of their existing Dash Robot. Highly recommended.
