  • New Lego Mindstorms Robot Inventor lets creators build and bring to life ‘anything they can imagine’.

For over two decades, Lego Mindstorms has inspired those of all ages to test and build their confidence with technology through play. By combining the Lego building system with robotic and coding elements, builders can create anything they can imagine, while developing the STEM skills that 7 in 10 parents say are essential to their child’s future success.

The new Lego Mindstorms Robot Inventor 5-in-1 model gives builders aged 10+ the power to bring one of the set’s five unique designs to life or take their own builds to the next level by programming them to walk, talk, think and do more than ever before. Kids can also code their own remote-control features for the models in the Lego Mindstorms Robot Inventor app or connect their own controllers to the app using Bluetooth.

The five intelligent creations can be easily controlled remotely using the Lego Mindstorms Robot Inventor app. Packed with over 50 fun coding challenges and activities to help build coding confidence, the app uses drag-and-drop coding language based on Scratch to support those getting into coding for the first time, as well as Python, suitable for advanced coders looking for new challenges.

Packed with 949 pieces and new Lego Powered Up components, the Lego Mindstorms Robot Inventor will be available in autumn 2020 from Lego.com, Lego Retail Stores and retailers globally.
