LEGO Boost 1

Building Just Got A Lot More Fun With LEGO Boost! {Giveaway!}

Like almost every kid out there, my children love building with LEGO! Over the years, our building habits have evolved from simply putting together the sets from the instructions, to creating whatever pops in to our heads, but the constant is that LEGO keeps us busy and creative for hours at a time.

With my son taking part in the Coding Club at his school, something I am constantly jealous of, I was excited to hear about LEGO’s newest product, LEGO Boost! Boost is a 5-in-1 model that introduces building and coding in one super-charged LEGO set, letting children add sound, movement and personality to their LEGO creations, bringing to life anything they can imagine! The LEGO BOOST Toolkit recently arrived on our doorstep and the kids were very excited to start their #BUILDwithBOOST adventure!

LEGO Boost 3

You can choose to build any of the 5 models, including Frankie the Cat, Guitar4000 and the M.T.R.4. We choose to start with Vernie the Robot as he seemed like a ton of fun! The kids and I had different ideas about how to start our new project, with them wanting to dump all 11 bags out at once, while I wanted a more level-headed and dadly approach. Needless to say, dad won that round!

After that, we downloaded the free LEGO Boost app and got started on building Vernie! Before we continue, please note that a tablet running iOS 10.3 and newer/Android 5.0 or above is required to build and play with LEGO® Boost™, so make sure your device is compatible by visiting before purchasing.

The app was amazing and very easy for the kids to follow along with. Full disclosure here, with 832 pieces, dad helped a little with the building as the kids were so excited to start giving commands to their creation. Plus, I am a giant child, so the opportunity to build with LEGO is still an exciting prospect for me…

Once Vernie the Robot was complete, the real full began! First things first, the kids absolutely fought over who would get to test him out first, which was ultimately decided by a rousing game of rock, paper, scissors. I was amazed watching as my kids used the LEGO Boost app to learn how to code on the spot and they had Vernie doing all sorts of tricks within a matter of minutes.

For the last week now, the first thing the kids want to do when they wake up and then get home from school is to play with their new robot friend. I’m usually careful about how much screen time they are getting but I can’t complain about it when they are teaching themselves how to code while also having a blast with their LEGO. Next up for us will be checking out the incredible BOOST BOTS series on YouTube, where we’ll be able to see what is possible with LEGO BOOST for those of us who like to put away the instruction manuals!

I honestly can’t say enough good things about LEGO Boost and if your kids are into LEGO, or coding, this would make the perfect gift for them!

Feel free to fill out as many Rafflecopter entries below as you’d like and I’ll be giving away a LEGO Boost kit to one lucky reader!! Giveaway is open to residents of Canada, excluding Quebec.

    Vernie the Robot looks the most fun to me. Playing with lego is a big event here too. Dad rules apply, no dumping everything everywhere.

    My girls would probably want to build the cat first, but that robot sure looks like fun!!!! Thanks for the chance and good luck everyone!!

    I remember playing around with these mechanical Legos back in grade school. They were so much fun to build and code with. I think I would go for the Guitar Build first! But this would prolly be a gift, so I would not be the one to choose.

    I believe that my grandkids would want to build Vernie the Robot first, hopefully their dad would help them because I don’t think I could, lol.

    I am guessing my daughter would like to build the cat first although she might rename him. 😉 Or she may opt to build Vernie the Robot first because she’s very intrigued by them and their technology. She’s always wanted a remote control toy but this Lego Boost is even better because she gets to build and code and make her creation move!

    Based on whay she’s been building lately, likely the auto builder. She wants “inventing things” for Christmas so I’ve got my fingers crossed for this giveaway!

    Our little guy would love to build AUTO Builder first ( Daddy too ) This is such a Great Toy. I would love to put it under our tree. Thank you and Happy Holidays 🙂

    My four year old grandson just discovered LEGO and I’d love to build the robot with him ? thanks for the opportunity to win !

    Vernie the Robot for sure. My 7 year old loves robots, cannot stop drawing robots and loves Lego. He plays with it every single day. I am shaking thinking about his face if he won this prize. Thank you.

    My kids would want to put together Frankie the Cat first, I think. The temptation to freak out our two cats with a robot version would be too strong 🙂

    We’d totally build Frankie the cat. Our girls are always asking for a cat (which we can’t get because if family allergies and because I loath cats) but a lego one sounds perfect!

    My 10 yr old would want to build the Robot first! He has been talking about coding a lot lately. Just confuses me! lol

    I would get Vernie the Robot; I think my younger kiddo would have a great time building and programming this toy! Love how creative toys are these days.

    We would love to build the robot, my son takes robotics as a class at school and my daughter loves to learn about coding and robotics as well.

    Actually none, I would donate this to my son’s Robotics club at school…they can decide what to build. Great contest!

    The Frankie the Cat. Just found out my godson wants a Lego Boost. He’s 9 and we are pretty sure he going to be an engineer because he lost taking thing apart and putting them back together. He is shy but just mentioned this is his wish! I can see why by your review with your boys. I am so glad I follow you other wise I wouldn’t have a clue what Damian was talking about

    Knowing my son, either Frankie the Cat or Vernie the Robot would be the first we’d build. Probably Vernie the Robot.
