  • Boost what a wonderful Lego toy
    by Waleed

    on November 16, 2019

    I always try to avoid technology when I buy toy for my kids, and this is why Lego my best buy. We get Boost and things went wrong. We have boost since first day release and until now we did not fully enjoy it. It would be a complete if just provide this toy with a controller. So we tried to solve the problem of not using the iPad to build or play with Boost we couldn't, you cannot even avoid being connected to the net 100%. Lego listen I am sure 90% of your parents buyers don't want the kids to hold an iPad connected to the net. So we as a family suggest to Lego to come up with their own controller that can handle and control and build Lego without connecting to the iPad, something like Kindle with colors. I hope you get my idea, and thank you for all of the wonderful toys you bring to our life.

    If you have the correct pad ie kindle or IPAD this is good. Challenging and good for their own confidence. My son is 7Years old and did this alone. He loves he programming part and is enough challenge. Recommend this highly

    My son is only five so needs a bit of help, but actually does pretty well building on his own. He does great with the coding on his own.
