Whether you are a Lego fanatic or just beginning to enjoy the adaptability and fun of Lego you’re bound to be captivated by what you are able to create with the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox. This is a great way for children to enjoy learning about various forms of advanced technology including robotics, coding and mechanics.
What better way to learn these subjects than exploring an 847-piece building kit. The building kit includes a LEGO move hub featuring low energy Bluetooth, two encoded motors, an ability to connect, an activation button, together with light and internal tilt sensor
Also included in the kit are building instructions for five LEGO models that come with the free LEGO boost application. The move hub has a color and distance sensor that can function as a light, also detect color, motion and distance.
A compatible tablet, either iPad or Android is essential for LEGO Boost to download instructions and make sure it functions correctly. By visiting the LEGO website (www.lego.com/devicecheck) you can check the compatibility of your tablet. The Bluetooth setup makes it fast and easy (no pairing on iOS).
Where the Fun Starts
You will see that the fun begins after you have downloaded the app. The first item to download is the free table app to your device. You will find easy step-by-step instructions and by following these, you will soon get started enjoying this wonderful toy.
Now you’re ready to put your robots together and get them coded. Choose from any of the five models.
Vernie the Robot talks and moves, and makes other sounds as well. Vernie is a interesting and exciting character for a child to play with.
M.T.R.4 is a multi-tooled Rover4 that comes with four tool attachments – one being a shooter that spring loads.
And then there is The Guitar. Who would have thought it possible to create music and sound effects from a LEGO set. Well, that’s what can be done with the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox.
Frankie the Cat is a pet that will show you its mood – playful or purring.
Then last, but not least, there is The Auto Builder which can be built on an automatic production line. Tiny LEGO models are made on the production line and this allows you see how the automation works.
Due to there being a huge collection of parts for the five models a child can easily build a range of intricate projects instantaneously. Although there may be a few challenges along the way, the LEGO Boost app smoothly leads the way to programming and building the models.
An exclusive coding experience is provided by the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox. This helps to bring a child’s creations to reality . Each of the five models includes exciting activities to add to the challenges and the fun.
A play mat to use with different activities of models is included in the set, along with a LEGO Boost wall poster.
I believe it would be hard to beat the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox toy when it comes to value and a great learning experience, together with lots of fun.
The LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox is recommended for children age 7 years and older.
Did you watch the video of the amazing creations that can be enjoyed from this fantastic Toolbox.
Just think of the fun a child can have creating each one of the five items:
Vernie the Robot and he actually does talk. Frankie the Cat who meows and purrs. A Guitar that plays music. And then there’s M.T. Rover4 and the Auto Builder.
To add to all of those is the learning experience of up to the minute technology.
With all the talk on World News these days about Robots taking over our lives, I have not found it greatly appealing. Now seeing this toy robot and what he’s programmed to do changes my thoughts, at least a little bit!
The good thing is this robot is not going to take over our lives, but he will give children lots of wonderful fun and learning.
