3. WHERE CAN I FIND BUILDING INSTRUCTIONS?

4. WHY IS THERE A PLAYMAT?
- The playmat is an important part of the initial experience kids have with LEGO® BOOST. The playmat is only needed for the 3 models (Getting Started vehicle, Vernie and the M.T.R.4) that move. The playmat contains a grid that is calibrated to the movement commands in these models. It allows kids to understand that one move block in the coding enables the model to move one square on the grid of the playmat.
