    LEGO BOOST Creative Toolbox 17101 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Patience 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant engagement. My daughter, now 8, is lucky. She was born LEGO rich. Her dad (me) is an AFOL. That said, she has not, until today, really shown an intense interest in building. At most, she would spend maybe 20 minutes on a set, then push the unfinished project in her parts bin. Not today. I installed the batteries, and over the course of four hours only had to assist with a few stiff technic pins and tires. She loved the ability to get things moving nearly out of the box. This purchase is worth every penny, and then some.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Son and I are loving this set The set is absolutely brilliant, my 8 year old son and I have spent all morning building things and proramming, so much so we are now resting as we have the run the batteriry out on the tablet.... The set is perfect level for beginners, simple to use the app and connetct and go through the very basic and simple to use instructions. however, do not be fooled, although a simple product and app, the possibilitiesare endless, we are both looking at how we can set up traps and gadgets for my sons bedroom I do hope they make available more motors, brains and other key functions soon as this toy will be well played with... I would say lego have a winner here and we will keep buying add ons going forward

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The kids love it I will make this one short, but I brought this set out this week and the kids (ages 5 & 6.75) love it. They are very into Lego, with many large sets / theme collections, and they have played with this one more in the past few days than any of the others. The app that you download is set up with interactive instructions that walk you thought the build(s) with unlocking activities that introduce you to the various commands available in the application. The programming techniques are primarily accessed though simple drag and drop commands that can be sequenced, and/or run in parallel. There are several execute types, with looping commands, movements, audio prompts, voice recording, pre-recorded audio clips, optical prompts, and movement sensors. Almost all commands have user variables that can be easily set through numeric entry or graphic selection. But still the overall programming structure remains simple. In addition, the user has ability to develop scripts and save them to different tool boxes. Really impressed with the app, and the multiple configurations available through the integration of the Lego System platform. Again my children love it, and it has kept them entertained and engrossed more (so far) than any other Lego set they have. (It mixes best of both worlds for them, tablet and Lego).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Love this! My eight year old son has been playing with this practically non stop since it arrived! We have all sorts of coding toys and this is the first one that has truly held his attention. Better still, he can manage it all on his own. I never mind helping him, but I love it when he is able to completely master something on his own. He has wanted Mindstorm for years but I wanted to wait until he was older. This is the perfect precursor to Mindstorm. I highly recommend Boost.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good entertainment, not great education The big failing with the EV3 robotics system is that after building a model it just gives you the program to run it. It does not really teach you how to code the program to run the model, or what different coading options are available or appropriate. Lego Boost does not have this failing. There is a large number of coading exercises and options that are given at various points throughout the build of each of the 5 models provided. However, it does have some significant disadvantages compared with EV3. Despite what it says on the box, it is not going to help your child to learn to code. There are no variables, conditional looping, and only very limited switching in the scratch-like code. As a result, programming is limited to executing strings of commands. There are some built in functions that allow the robot to react to its environment, but these cannot be coaded using the standard instructions. Your child will learn how to put together stings of instructions, but will not learn any real coading. The builds are rather complex. As they mostly use the standard lego stud bricks, rather than the lego technic bricks there are a lot of complex, specialized pieces in the set. The build instructions are very systematic and clear, so there should not be problems with the standard builds, but the complexity of the peices will make it difficult for your child to build their own designs. One other shortcoming is that the software is quite buggy. At many points, I had to shut down the software, and restart it, and restart the robot to get the example programs to work. Lego’s software QA has never been great, but I hope that things will improve as there are newer releases of the software. Also, be aware that the software will only run on specific iOS and android tablets. There is no PC based software, which is very frustrating. I have to steal my wife’s iPad to run the software. Make sure that you have the right hardware before you purchase. The educational We-Do set suffers from similar building and coading issues. If your child has been using a we-do set in class, this Boost set compliments We-Do well, so is a good option if they want to continue their learning at home. The set is well thought out and very entertaining, but it will not teach them anything significant about coading or robotics. For this you will have to step up to an EV3 set. The Boost Crative Toolbox set is a very entertaining set, but is not great for education.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed My son has been saving his birthday money for a while now to find that perfect toy. We went to a friend's house and he played with their Lego Boost and immediately wanted it! We were so excited because we love Lego and loved the fact that it was going to teach coding as well. We ordered it as a surprise to him, took him out to eat, then revealed our big surprise. We came home and got ready to build only to find out that our iPad Air is not compatible with this! Neither are either of our iPhone 7plus phones. The same day we purchased Lego Boost we also purchased the Dash robot for our younger two sons because they also had been saving their birthday money. They were able to start playing right away with our iPad and our iPhones while our oldest had to watch them (They let him join in on their fun because they felt bad for him). Please tell me this will change. If not, we will have to return this because we cannot spend $500 or more on a new iPad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fun for everyone This product introduces himself to you. It has an App that takes kids and adults step by step through building so that kids can use this by themselves and learn building principles, use it with friends or adults. The little bot has personality. It's such a blast. Thank you LEGO for sending it early. I appreciate you launching it early and caring enough about your customers to send it to us so that we could enjoy it.
