About LEGO Boost
Build, code and play: a techy alternative to the classic LEGO collections, LEGO Boost is the perfect way to upgrade your LEGO building skills with something a little more complex. A great way to introduce children to coding, once they’ve created their robotic friend using a combination of motors and sensors to build the basic model, they’ll be able to teach them an array of fab new skills and tricks.
