Ranger has the 4 directional buttons that you program to get him to perform a task. We programmed him to catch Zip on the slide, play hide & seek, use the fire extinguisher (he is a male doggy after all 😂) and circle his house to get inside for a 'nap'.
When you press Rangers nose for 2 seconds it turns on the play mode. Ranger dances to 4 different songs; goes on patrol, makes munching sounds for chewing his bone & snores. Zip is not programmable but he does have 4 wheels and can magnetically attach to Rangers nose. That's actually how Ranger can 'catch' him when he slides. They can also dance together the same way. We found Ranger works on several surfaces, including granite. Kids shouldn't tire of this playset as quickly because you can code Ranger to move in so many different scenarios or put him in the play mode for different options.
I will say that Ranger does not make tight turns. When he's dancing to one particular song he needs plenty of space. Also, when coding him to go to a certain location you have to take into account his turning radius to get him to that point. Our 18 month old is fascinated by Ranger and always wants the "doggy" to play with. She's obviously not coding (yet!) but likes the play mode and rolling Zip around. So this toy is appealing to multiple ages .🙂
The larger and main animal takes three (3) AAA batteries, which are not included. The big dog is the coding robot. With directional arrows on its back, a child can easily press and enter the path they want the toy to take. To familiarize kids with usage, a short story with instructions using the characters is included. There are directional paw prints to help little ones visually lay out the path they want the animal to take before they enter commands. Along with the coding mode, there is also a "play" mode, allowing for more interaction.
The main animal has a smaller friend to interact with via a magnet in their noses. Our small friend is a puppy. The other plastic play pieces in our set are a dog house, a slide, a teeter totter, a ball, and a bone. The slide has a little "house" at the top that is easily lifted off the slide, which my children were frequently asking me to fix.
Besides the cardstock paw prints, there is also a cardstock tree and a fire hydrant. Both stand with the help of a plastic disc base. I found that the tree, which is large at the top, needs a larger base to be more stable. Our tree was also bent in half within a few moments of play. My kids quickly incorpirated other ibjects for the dogs to mive around and avoid. In my opinion, both tree and hydrant could easily have been left out and would not have been missed.
I tried the set with my three and four year olds. They had a lot of fun choosing directions for the dog. The three year old really enjoys the "dance" mode. My six year old wanted to try it out as well and enjoyed determining the dog's path.
