  1. This *is* the robot you’ve been looking for OVERALL CONCLUSION==================LEGO boost is 80% of the learning at 50% of the cost and 20% of the hassle of LEGO’s fancier Mindstorms product. LEGO Boost compares really well to all other competing robots out there, so if you want your kid to know about coding, robotics, mechanics or technology, it’s a really easy choice. The age range is spot-on: 7 to 12 years old seems just right.TOP PROS: 1) Great value for what you get; 2) Extensive models for a lot of fun; 3)…

They did a good job forcing you to take a gradual approach to learning by “unlocking” capabilities as you learn them. That said, there are two issues that others have reported as well. The product is so new that there is no help available with a google search…
