Best LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox for 2018 $159.95
LEGO boost is 80% of the learning at 50% of the cost and 20% of the hassle of LEGO’s fancier Mindstorms product. LEGO Boost compares really well to all other competing robots out there, so if you want your kid to know about coding, robotics, mechanics or technology, it’s a really easy choice. The age range is spot-on: 7 to 12 years old seems just right.
- Great value for what you get
- Extensive models for a lot of fun
- Painless setup so that kids can use the app and Bluetooth connection
- Needs an iPad or Android tablet, which can triple the cost
- Limited accessories and other sensors/motors so far
- App can be very confusing at times and the “unlocking” of levels is irritating easily.
