I bought this set, as I wanted a fun activity during this covid-19 homeschooling period. I have 10y old twin daughters. They both loved it. We very quickly built the robot and the guitar. I'm thinking of buying a second one so that we don't have to break a construction to build a second one!
I always try to avoid technology when I buy toy for my kids, and this is why Lego my best buy. We get Boost and things went wrong. We have boost since first day release and until now we did not fully enjoy it. It would be a complete if just provide this toy with a controller. So we tried to solve the problem of not using the iPad to build or play with Boost we couldn't, you cannot even avoid being connected to the net 100%. Lego listen I am sure 90% of your parents buyers don't want the kids to hold an iPad connected to the net. So we as a family suggest to Lego to come up with their own controller that can handle and control and build Lego without connecting to the iPad, something like Kindle with colors. I hope you get my idea, and thank you for all of the wonderful toys you bring to our life.

Don't worry, you don't need to be connected to the internet to play with our LEGO® BOOST once the app is downloaded and up to date. We want our young fans to enjoy learning how to code, this is why we opted for an app in this case! We do have plenty of sets which include remote controls such as our Powered Up selection. Check it out! Happy coding!
If you have the correct pad ie kindle or IPAD this is good. Challenging and good for their own confidence. My son is 7Years old and did this alone. He loves he programming part and is enough challenge. Recommend this highly
The application freezes and does not allow you to move to the next level, this is completely unacceptable. And yet there is no paper provided if this scenario happens. My son can't complete the first stage application is on two devices waist of money.

Hi there, We're sorry to hear that you can't use the app. If the app freezes, make sure you don't have any app running in the background. You can also try to uninstall and reinstall the app, this should do the trick. If you need any more help, don't hesitate to contact our Tech Support at LEGO.build/Service.
Lego Boost creative toolbox is amazing! What an incredible product if you want to expose your child to robotics and coding. The app is extremely easy to use. Anyone can build these robots if you follow the instructions on the app. Endless hours of fun and learning. We bought this for our 6 year old son. He built Vernie on his own following the directions. We are avid Lego fans so our son has been exposed from an early age to Lego. If your child is used to Lego Duplo this will be challenging build. And the pieces might be difficult to manipulate. And they might get frustrated. Your child needs to be able to build with smaller pieces than Duplo. Lego Duplo has a coding train if your child is used to Duplo. ( Lego Duplo coding express). The coding in Lego Boost creative toolbox is from basic to more complicated. The app teaches your child to code. What an brilliant product.
I bought this for my nephew and he was so excited just after watching the videos of Vernie. After completing the 1st lesson with help of his parents, he really loved it and is now waiting to complete more lessons.
This was an awesome robot to build with the kids, but once we reached a step that required turning the robot on, it would start to move and shutdown or continue to complain the sensor or motor was not connected. I ended up finding the full instructions online to complete the build, since the app prevents you to move on. So all in all, a great project to build, but expensive when you can't actually use it.

Oh no! I'm sorry you weren't able to enjoy the full LEGO® BOOST experience! While building the robots themselves is fun, the real magic of BOOST is bringing those robots to life through the app. Make sure to check the compatibility of your device at LEGO.build/DeviceCheck (especially that it has Bluetooth 4.1 or higher). If you're still having trouble, our tech experts at LEGO.build/Service are more than happy to help!
