Let The Magic Moments of Your LEGO Play Come To Life Through Coding
With the LEGO® BOOST set, you can immediately form five unique creations, promising hours of endless fun play:
- Vernie the Robot,
- Frankie the Cat,
- the Guitar 4000,
- the Multi-Tool Rover 4 (M.T.R.4),
- the Autobuilder.
Creative Canvas Boosts Unlimited Creativity And Imagination
To further inspire creative building and coding, the LEGO® BOOST app includes a “creative canvas” that includes basic building instructions for three simple base models that children can use to customise their own LEGO creations:
- A walking base for making animals like a dragon or a pony
- A driving base for building vehicles like a dune buggy or rover
- An entrance base so that children can make their own castle, fort, or even a futuristic space station.
Once children are comfortable with building and coding the various LEGO® BOOST models, they can use the kit to “boost” any LEGO creation – from LEGO® CITY and LEGO® FRIENDS to LEGO® NINJAGO and everything else!
LEGO® BOOST Creative Toolbox includes:
- 3 BOOST bricks:
- Move Hub with built-in tilt sensors
- Combination colour & distance sensor
- Interactive motor
- 843 LEGO® elements
- Playmat, calibrated to the app, designed to facilitate mini challenges to practice simple coding trials
FREE LEGO® BOOST APP available for download at both Apple App Store and Google Play store
BOOST uses 6 AAA batteries. Alkaline batteries are recommended, but rechargeable batteries can be used, though may result in weaker power output.
