Every toy and electronics maker wants to get on the edutainment train.

After all, who wouldn t want to make the toy that kickstarts the lifelong fascination of the next Nikola Tesla or Ada Lovelace?

But such a glut of products highlights a consistent issue with the space: educational toys are easy to do, but hard to do well.

As the first entry in its planned BoseBUILD line of educational products, Bose s Speaker Cube has a lot hanging on it.

So naturally, the company sticks fairly close to home, with a kit that promise to show kiddos the magical inner workings of a Bluetooth speaker.

The $149 system relies heavily on the company s Sound app, which essentially serves at an interactive instructional manual.
