Play Ideas

Create your own delivery vehicle out of Dash with LEGO!

What you'll need:

  • Dash
  • Building Brick Extensions
Set up Time

45 minutes

  • The Compact Tracked Loader Set from LEGO


Turn Dash into a dump truck so you can drop off some toys, give a tasty treat to a friend, or clean up your room. These building instructions help you build your bot, and then it’s your turn to program Dash and bring your truck to life!


  1. Build your dump truck attachment with the Compact Tracked Loader Set and two Building Brick Extensions. Detailed building instructions here.

  2. Attach the Building Brick Connectors to the left side of Dash’s head and back. Check out this photo to get the right fit.

  3. Create your program in Blockly. Every time Dash’s head turns 30 degrees left, the dump truck dumps! What can you use Dash’s dump truck for?
