The CogniToys App allows parents to give consent for kids to use the CogniToys Dino. The App is intended for parents to configure the Dino to Wi-Fi. The CogniToys App contains a Wi-Fi Address Book where parents can save frequently used Wi-Fi networks (home, school, friend’s house, etc.) so the Dino automatically connects to trusted Wi-Fi networks when within range. All Wi-Fi networks & passwords typed in using the App are case sensitive. The Wi-Fi Address Book can be used to delete networks as well. The App contains FAQ & troubleshooting tips.
You must have a CogniToys Dino to use this App. Using the App, you can connect the Dino to networks which support 802.11b/g/n, operating at 2.4 Ghz (most common). Dinos are not compatible with 802.11a/ac or enterprise Wi-Fi, MiMO routers, or networks operating at 5.0 Ghz.

This app does not do what it is supposed to do, on the Cognitoys website they show a screenshot of the Parent Panel that is nowhere to be found, COGNITOYS if you don't have it or if you are still in the process of development please don't advertise it on your website, it is very misleading and just plain and simple false advertising.
The idea behind it is awesome but the toy still has a lot of flaws, the most absurd in my opinion is the way they designed the battery compartment, the batteries go in a vertical position with the negative pole been a spring, if my son puts it down on any surface with a little bit too much force, the toy resets instantly by loosing connection on the springs.
In my opinion they rush it into production, they should come out with an updated version.
2 stars just because my son does like the freaking Dino.
Unable to connect
We purchased 2 Dino's- we are able to get one to work and the other will not- we have tried multiple times to connect only get - please download the app so we can play! It's very frustrating explaining to a 6yo why his toy isn't working. We are on day 3 of waiting for technical support to call back. Very disappointed
This toy could be an amazing toy! ..BUT sadly it DOESN’t work, i have bought 2 and returned both of them... I honestly think there is something wrong with the toy’s server Which doesn’t allow it to connect, furthermore now the account doesn’t work!!! On the app it now says: ERROR cannot connect with the server error error error error!!!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
