Singapore, 26th October 2017 – Crowned as the winner of Toy Award at the 2017 Nuremberg International Toy Fair, LEGO® BOOST Creative Toolbox is no doubt the MUST-HAVE toy this season. This supercharged 5-in-1 building and coding set that empowers children to bring their LEGO creations to life by adding movement, sound and personality is making its debut in Singapore this Friday, 27th October!

How do you make something awesome more awesome? You boost it!

Designed for children ages 7 and older, LEGO® BOOST brings the LEGO building experience to the next level – turning LEGO creations into programmable robots, which makes play extra fun in an amazing new way!

At LEGO, we know that children dream of bringing their LEGO creations to life, and our chief ambition for LEGO® BOOST is to fulfill that wish. Powered by a Move Hub, a LEGO stud-covered brick with built-in tilt sensor upon which children can add LEGO elements, motors and a sensor that combines colour and distance detection, LEGO® BOOST brings movement to any LEGO creation through a free downloadable app that contains the guidance, building instructions and simple coding commands.

Much like building with LEGO bricks, children build behaviours and actions by linking digital coding blocks in an easy-to-understand horizontal layout within the app to give children the basic building and coding skills needed to express their creativity by personalising whatever they build. LEGO® BOOST even lets children record voice effects for their creations, adding personality without requiring spelling and typing.

Let The Magic Moments of Your LEGO Play Come To Life Through Coding

LEGO® BOOST is a great and fun way to introduce children to the principles of coding. As a brand, we want children to first and foremost have a fun and limitless play experience; and with coding, multiple possibilities come to life.
With the LEGO® BOOST set, you can form five unique creations, promising hours of endless fun play:
  • Vernie the Robot,
  • Frankie the Cat,
  • the Guitar 4000,
  • the Multi-Tool Rover 4 (M.T.R.4),
  • the Autobuilder.

Creative Canvas Boosts Unlimited Creativity And Imagination

To further inspire creative building and coding, the LEGO® BOOST app includes a “creative canvas” that includes basic building instructions for three simple base models that children can use to customise their own LEGO creations:

  • A walking base for making animals like a dragon or a pony
  • A driving base for building vehicles like a dune buggy or rover
  • An entrance base so that children can make their own castle, fort, or even a futuristic space station.

Once children are comfortable with building and coding the various LEGO® BOOST models, they can use the kit to “boost” any LEGO creation – from LEGO® CITY and LEGO® FRIENDS to LEGO® NINJAGO and The LEGO® BATMAN Movie.

LEGO® BOOST Creative Toolbox includes:

Hardware
  • 3 BOOST bricks:
    • Move Hub with built-in tilt sensors
    • Combination colour & distance sensor
    • Interactive motor
  • 843 LEGO® elements
  • Playmat, calibrated to the app, designed to facilitate mini challenges to practice simple coding trials

LEGO® BOOST APP
  • App is available for free at both Apple App Store and Google Play store.
