About LEGO BOOST
LEGO BOOST is a 5-in-1 model that introduces building and coding in one super-charged LEGO set. Letting children add sound, movement, and personality to their LEGO creations, bringing to life anything they can imagine!
With the new LEGO BOOST, your child can combine both the physical and digital world.
Using the LEGO BOOST app (available on IOS/iPad & Android/Tablets) your child will be guided throughout the build of their Lego creation of choice.
They will also learn how to code using the mobile game-like app interface, which will help get their robotic Lego moving!
Please note: A tablet running iOS 10.3 and newer/Android 5.0 or above is required to build and play with LEGO Boost. Please visit LEGO.com/DeviceCheck to check if your device is compatible.
5 Models in 1
VERNIE the Robot
Vernie is the star of the show and your own personal robot friend. He’s at your command and you can make him sing, dance or even fire darts. He always acts extra cool when you dress him up in his sunglasses and bow tie. Dress him up however you like!
FRANKIE the Cat
One look at those friendly eyes and Frankie will be your cherished pet forever. He always purrs loudly when you stroke his head or feed him his favorite fish. But NEVER pull his tail – or he might get very upset!
The Auto Builder is a LEGO creation that builds other LEGO creations. It is an automated production line that moves backward and forwards so you can code it to build your own creations.
If there’s a hidden rock star inside you, you’re going to love the Guitar 4000! Play a song or create your own awesome tune. It even allows you to add some cool pitch bend and sound effects.
Build the M.T.R.4 (Multi-Tooled Rover 4) and try out its different tool and customization attachments – such as a hammer or dart shooter – to prepare this tough vehicle for an array of exciting activities.
