How to build Frankie, the LEGO® BOOST robot cat

Frankie the LEGO® BOOST robot cat is just like a real cat, except he’s made of LEGO bricks, so there’s no risk of allergies there. He’s looking for a good home, so you can build him by following the easy building instructions in the LEGO BOOST Creative Toolbox App.

As you build, the app will teach you how to take care of him, step by step: you will learn how to make him drink a bottle of brick kitten milk, purr when you pet him, and what better way to celebrate your new kitten’s birthday than by making him “meow” his own birthday song? (Okay, so maybe he’s not EXACTLY like a real cat, but he IS housebroken!)

Need some help building Frankie the Cat? Watch the video to get started, and just follow these simple steps!
Open the LEGO BOOST Creative Toolbox App and select Frankie from the menu. Isn’t he just PURRfect?

Select the first tutorial to build the first part of Frankie. Don’t worry, you’ll have detailed, step-by-step instructions to help you all through the way! 

Disconnect all the Move Hub parts from the previous tutorial build.

Begin assembling the first part of Frankie! Once in a while, you’ll be asked to test Frankie out by pressing the green button on the Move Hub. Wait a few seconds for the app and the Move Hub to connect.

Test out your build by coding a few behaviors and actions! Frankie’s a bit hungry, so he may want a bit of robot milk. 

Once you’ve finished building the first part of Frankie, you’ll unlock the second part: building his cool tail! Keep going – we believe in you! 

That tail is too awesome, but wait – Frankie needs some legs! Follow the rest of the instructions to complete Frankie just in time for his birthday! Congratulations! :D
