Why we love this

Boost your LEGO building experience with the amazing LEGO BOOST Creative Toolbox. Build and customize Vernie, your own personal talking robot friend, code its behavior and complete fun activities with the included playmat. Speak to Vernie and it will respond with facial expressions that reflect its mood. Vernie can move in all directions at variable speed on its large tracks, see objects and colors, sense distance, grip and carry accessories, make hand gestures and launch darts from its shoulder mounted shooter! Vernie also senses and reacts to impacts and knows when you pick it up. Rebuild Vernie to create the M.T.R.4 (Multi-Tooled Rover 4), Guitar4000, Frankie the Cat or the AutoBuilder, all controlled via your tablet with the free downloadable app that also includes digital LEGO Building Instructions for all 5 models, plus cool activities and ideas to spark your imagination.

A tablet running iOS 10.3 and newer/Android 5.0 or above is required to build and play with LEGO Boost. Please visit to check if your tablet is compatible.

Our customers say

LEGO BOOST - Creative Toolbox - 17101 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I was really excited about getting this for my son to give to his grandfather to celebrate his birthday. After multiple attempts to download the software required to run the programs - and even for building instructions - I gave up and returned it. I should not have to purchase new Ipads or laptops to be able to enjoy a new LEGO set. Nice concept, but if LEGO wants to succeed with it, it needs to interface with more operating systems. Maybe software could be provided on a jump drive or installation CD. PS - you need to add options for purchases for parents and grandparents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant and Engaging This has proven an incredible educational play tool for our 8yr old Autistic son. The build is a little more time consuming as you really have to sort the pieces first, and the build is challenging. To be fair it's normally the build that defines the Lego fun experience - but this is not the case in relation to Lego Boost - the build is JUST THE START OF THE FUN & LEARNING! The product quite literally comes to life when the programming and interaction starts using the app. It's engaging, has instant reward/gratification, encourages further learning and development, and unlocks the concept and principles of programming. The biggest challenge we have found is that we couldn't bare the thought of tearing down the cat to make a alternative creation - So we ended up having to buy further sets! Which we didn't mind as it proves exceptional value given all the additional play features, interactive apps and educational / learning benefits. It is by far the best lego set we have purchased (And we have purchased A LOT - as our Autistic son's special interest is Lego - which is all about following the sequence of build instructions - so we have sacrificed a lot to purchase so many sets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time building with my son I bought this for myself for my birthday because I wanted to have some father/son time that no one else in the house would be interested in... selfish, but it worked. And the boost set is so much fun. We have only built the robot, but are excited to rebuild and check out the coding of the other builds too. Thank you Lego for making something that is perfect for this age group. One additional servo would have been awesome, but doesn't detract from the 5 brick rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So fun, but I would love to have an extra motor.. My 7 year old son loves this, though it was challenging to build the robot--challenging enough that I don't want to take him apart in order to use his motor for the other builds. Is there a way to buy extra motors?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money Why would you release a product without software to support any but the newest tablets? We got this for our sons birthday in August and haven't been able to download the app on any of our Kindle devices. Very frustrating for us and disappointing for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic This box is fantastic! The app works perfectly on our Huawei MediaPad. The best thing is: you don't need to build the complete robot before you start playing: the developers built in some really great games in between to get to know the robot step by step. That enhances the fun of building the robot even more! I recommend this product for every child! Perfect and worth every cent!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Neat idea but.... When the email for the Lego Boost showed up in my email, I was so excited. The twins had enjoyed playing with these programmable balls at the library and they LOVE Lego I thought this would be a hit. So I purchased this for their 9th birthday and they loved it, for two days! The day they got it and the next day while they put it together. Since then it sits there collecting dust. Lego: Will the program change to allow for faster moving? Will you ever sell the hub separately so kids can build more than one at once? Why does it go through batteries so fast?
