The LEGO Boost Creative Box is a great way to introduce children to coding and robotics at the same time. The hook allows kids to pick up five robots including Vernie the Robot, Frankie the Cat, the Multi-Tooled Rover 4, and more. Once built, it is up to the children to code these different bots so they can dance, play the guitar, move around the room, and more. This coding kit is for kids ages 7 to 12.

This hook allows kids ages 8 and older to design and redesign the designed robot into 12 different shapes ranging from rectangular to crab. The built-in utilities will provide amphibious bot capabilities allowing the unit to operate on land or water. In some configurations, the unit can spin water to operate as a "row-bot" or "surf-bot." The two-in-one drive motor can be powered by batteries or the built-in solar panel for added indoor or outdoor flexibility.

The Gravity Maze uses a series of challenges, blocks, marble, and gravity to enable the complex solution of spatial problems in a specific form. Each round challenge details the starting and ending location as well as the pieces required for this specific task. It is then up to the children to arrange the turn cubes until the marble completes the course. The set includes 60 different challenges and these increase in complexity from beginner rounds to more advanced offers. The Gravity Maze is recommended for children 8 and older.
