Given the company's track record and the tremendously entertaining final product, the Lego Boost Toolbox retained its spot at number one. A big upgrade came to the Elegoo kit, the size and scope of which were enough to skyrocket it up the list. The company also sends out randomized selections of certain version components, making it a smart choice for parents with more than one child interested in electricity, as the two sets you get might not be perfectly identical and may cause your kids to work together to get to know each other's sets. A newcomer to the list is the Boolean Box, which allows youngsters to build their own computers from scratch, and that's targeted to a female audience. It ousted the Sphero robot, which had less to teach kids about electricity or coding than we'd hoped, and acted instead as more of an RC racer that you control with your phone.
