Designed for ages 7 and older, LEGO BOOST introduces kids to coding through a free downloadable app that contains the guidance, building instructions and simple coding commands to bring five LEGO creations to life: Vernie the Robot, Frankie the Cat, the Guitar 4000, the Multi-Tool Rover 4 (M.T.R.4), and the Autobuilder.
