  • Patience
    Reviewed by Legomastersx2 - July 25, 2017

    I got this build for my 7 year old son who loves to build and code so this was perfect. This build is an awsome build but lego failed in a few ways. First there is 847 parts and 11 bags and lego did not put the builds in bag order. You have to search thru all 847 parts to find what you need. One part in bag 9 next part in bag 3 next part bag 11 and so on. Very frustrating trying to find what you need. So I have been the parts finder and him the builder. Fail 2 is the box it came in. Lego should have put this build in a reclosable box like there games come in. Maybe even with a tray they use for the advent calendar.

  • App confusion
    Reviewed by Slheywood - August 27, 2017

    Bought this for my 8 y/o son who loves it and plays with it constantly. First foray into coding and this level of Lego so I'm very impressed with it and value for money. I am however confused with the app and don't find it too user friendly (not being technical myself). Am looking for instructions how to navigate through it - the robot has been built no problem following the building instructions, but confused on the coding / why the need to apply numbers to the pieces...how and if my son can play around with the order of them... Are there instructions anywhere? Also the treasure box at the beginning, not sure what that entails either... Basically I need more instruction!

  • Nice set
    Reviewed by ltobal - July 8, 2019

    I am writing this on behalf of my daughter (almost 7 years old) who found the current (3.5) rating unfair. She loves playing with her Boost set and she thinks it is very cute (her words here). In general it is a really fun set to play with. I do have to help her with the programming interface and she is still not able to program by herself but it has definitely promoting her interest in programming. The overall experience with the software has been flawless (we use it under iOS). The program blocks are separated by colors based on the type of command and are very intuitive to work with.
