LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox – Brilliant Technology for Children

Lego Boost Creative ToolboxWhether 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 ( 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.

    I just escaped having these kind of toys in my childhood. My legos were stationary. It would be fascinating to have access to these as a kid and I will keep it in mind for my nieces for a holiday gift – it’s never too early to learn about robotics and mechanics!

      Hi Penelope,

      Thank you for visiting my site and leaving your comment. As it was with you, I too missed out on lego. However, it is a great toy for children of this era as learning about robots will be helpful for them as they mature. I’m not keen on the idea of robots replacing humans in the workforce, but no doubt there is a role for robots somewhere! For now, it is a good educational toy for children to enjoy.

    WoW, what a fantastical toy! My husband has been talking about getting Lego toys for our grandchildren this Christmas. I will have to show him this and see what he thinks…. I had no idea there were such sophisticated toys at this age range and five very interesting characters to create much excitement for them. Thank you for the great toy idea.

      Hi Riley,

      I’m pleased you like the Lego toy. It is amazing how sophisticated toys can be these days. I”m sure your grandchildren would love this Lego set, particularly with five toys to make out of one box of Lego.

      I hope it provides some ideas for Christmas. And, thank you very much for visiting the website and leaving your comment.

    That looks like a wonderful toy. Legos have come a long way. The Boost can be many hours of fun and learning. Our world is becoming more robotized. Kids need to experience this at a young age.

      Hi Joe

      Thanks for visiting the site and leaving your comment. I agree with what you say about children needing the experience of robots, and to have fun at the same time is a treat for them. It seems certain that robots are going to be big time in the future, so enjoying them before the novelty wears off is a good idea, I believe.

    Wow, this is brilliant! I’m 35 and I want one. I always loved Legos as a kid, it was by far my favorite toy. It’s amazing to see how Lego has stayed relevant. With no exaggeration, I am completely blown away by this set. A couple of questions, are the instructions for building the different models through the app? (I remember the old paper instructions). Also, can all 5 models be constructed with just the one set? Thanks for sharing, this is really cool, I can’t wait until my kids are old enough to start playing with Legos.

    • Valerie Joy November 4, 2017 at 4:38 am #

      Hi Will,

      I love the fact that at the age of 35 you want a LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox. And why not. Of course you should have one if it makes you happy.

      To answer your questions. 1. Yes, the instructions for building the five different models are to be downloaded through the app.
      2. The five models are constructed from the one set of Lego.

      I’m sure when your children are old enough there will be great fun in your household with toys such as this Lego set.

    I love LEGO! This robot looks fantastic! My child is a bit too young to play LEGO as small building blocks could be considered by him as something edible… but I know a big (grown up) fan of LEGO :) I mean my husband, of course. He would find this toy very entertaining (He often tells me to buy some LEGO for our son – who is 1,5 y old btw – and he’ll “take care” of it until our baby will be old enough to be able to play with it :) LEGO boost Creative Toolbox seems like a fantastic idea for the Christmas present!

    • Valerie Joy November 4, 2017 at 4:48 am #

      Hi Gosia,

      Your husband sounds to be like so many fathers who can’t wait for the children to be old enough to play with toys they missed out when growing up. I loved reading that this man will take care of LEGO until his 1.5 year old child is old enough to play with it. That’s precious!

      I think you had better not let your husband visit this website or he just might not be able to resist this latest LEGO toy.

      Thanks so much Gosia for leaving your comment. It is most enjoyable.

    I think Lego boost creative toolbox is a good boost for my 7-year-old child. It is well designed to satisfy a child’s curiosity. The review is well written with all aspects of creative and technical aspects. I recommend anyone with children above 7 years old. Thanks for your review.

    • Valerie Joy November 4, 2017 at 4:54 am #

      Hi Sudheendra,

      Thank you for visiting this post and leaving your comment. I’m pleased to know that you think this LEGO toy is good for your 7 year old child.
      Although it is a sophisticated toy, it is one that provides education in area of robotics as well as being a fun toy

    Valerie –
    This takes me back to my childhood! I loved legos and used to collect them (actually continued into my teenage years). I’d be lying if I said I didn’t continue to put together some of the more advanced legos from time to time. This Lego boost creative toolbox is pretty neat – takes the fun of putting together legos amplified by technology. I wish we had these types of legos when we were younger. The great thing is that it is interactive to help learning as you mentioned. Might have to consider this for one of my nephews!!
    Great find thanks for the review!

      Hi Adam

      I’m so pleased you enjoyed the Lego Boost page. Being taken back to our childhood can be fun, especially when the subject is around items similar to the favorite toys we were so fortunate to have.

      I enjoyed reading your comment, for which I thank you.

      All the best
