Would this be good for an 8 year old?



I think LEGO Boost is better for younger kids.

There's two sets from the Boost theme

- LEGO Star Wars 75253 Droid Commander set for £179.99 (£100 at Argos argos.co.uk/pro…3:1)
- LEGO Boast 17101 Creative Toolbox set for £149.99 (£124.26 at Amazon with batteries amazon.co.uk/dp/…c=1)

Great price but hasn't this version been on sale for some time now? Wondering when the next version will be along. :s
Recently been wanting this but £150 is my biting point even though i doubt this set will ever get that low any time soon anyway.

Though saying that £175 is great considering what LEGO sells the 8 electronic parts for separately which come up to over £300 due to the main part the EV3 Intelligent Brick is £202 on its own. Overall there are 3 motors, an inferred sensor, touch sensor and colour sensor on top of the Intelligent Brick which all comes up to £371.92 that's not including a cable pack which is £15.99 separately.

My son is obsessed with ten pin bowling and the Lego pinsetter that 'Think Clever and Smart' has videos of on YouTube. I'm hoping that this would be a good set to get to start him off on recreating it himself with the various motors and sensors included. Fingers crossed!
Bought for my 12yo. Keep to play for a few months and hopefully sell on for little loss. Appreciate the post.
hah i recognise that Zamor sphere holder that they used in the bionicle line

Thank you just ordered one for a big kid! Yes myself ,😜 £175 click and collect
Looks like this kit is being discontinued according to the Lego website. Probably still worth getting regardless as it shouldn't really affect the current usability of the kit.

I think micro python only came out last year, by the looks of it that's released a whole new life to it.
Bought the previous version for my son. I was very impressed with its capabilities. The stepper motors are precise, the sensors work well, you can do all sorts of things with it.
I've had this set sitting untouched in the loft for a couple of years now. It was fun for a while, but just got stowed away when the family's obsession with lego waned. I should really sell it on.

There is a lot of kit in this to be honest. It links up to a tablet as well via bluetooth so a lot easier to use than the previous version. My lad got it for xmas and really enjoyed building it and programming it. There are loads of models to build using the same parts as well so good value.

Perfectly accessible for an 8 year old, and very much suitable for children aged 10-11. I've taught kids, using this set, at all of these ages and they love it.

I don't think this is set to retire for another couple years, the reason its OOS at LEGO is they have had a mass of orders and not much stock to meet demand once all this current situation calms down the over 50+ sets currently OOS at LEGO Shop will be back in stock and in stores which from what I'm aware are full of the same stock they had when they shut.

This is the impression I've gotten from an official LEGO statement to fan sites about the availability of LEGO sets.

As a STEM ambassador, WeDo 2.0 is the latest Lego product being rolled out to schools (or rather was prior to the pandemic) for ages 6-10. The base kit is a lot cheaper:

amazon.co.uk/LEG…8-1

EV3 comes into its own for the First Lego League competitions which involve those from 11-16 generally since it involves more complex programming (to a point) with the amount of sensors and audio functions that it can accomodate.

For those wanting to know a little more about the First Lego League, information can be found here: firstlegoleague.org/about

I've been a judge for a number of competitions over the years and some of the creations and programming that schools come up with never cease to amaze me.

Thank you everyone for the replies the downside of having too many choices
Now there is Mindstorms, Boost droids or the huge red technic terrain crane. He is trying to decide which to go for.
It's worth looking at the Lego education range too as that's become available to the public.
The rubrics cube solver that you can make with this is really good.
Gone back up now.

let me know if anyone ordered a spare one, happy to pay for P&P.
Cheers.
