A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn to make new creations in a 3D digital environment, they can experience how parts come together to create a whole, and they can experiment with how features such as color, light, and weather affect their worlds. 

Ease of Play

Kids will need lots of patience while learning to use the controls since they require precision and aren't as intuitive as many other world-building, block-style games kids have already played.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Blox 3D World Creator is a world-building app in the vein of Minecraft in which kids use blocks and other objects to create one-of-a-kind worlds. A similar app from the same developer is for slightly younger kids. Scenes can include elements of light and dark, black and white, weather, and other color features. Kids can save a project to work on multiple times or watch an unwanted attempt literally "blow up." Use premade templates to begin, or make your own from scratch. Read the app's privacy policy to find out about the types of information collected and shared.

Lazy ROBLOX

Don't recommend, ROBLOX is better.

What's it about?

First watch a brief tutorial on how to build on and navigate BLOX 3D WORLD CREATOR. Choose one of the templates or start from scratch, and then select from colors and type of block (or object, such as a tree, door, or flag). Tap a side of one existing block to add another to it; double-tap to delete it. Tap Play to watch a replay of how you built your structure. The explosion tab explodes and deletes a creation, but players can also save and build more later.

Is it any good?

This world-building app has lots of cool features but may initially be too frustrating for some kids to hang in for the fun. Many younger kids may still be developing the fine motor precision and patience that's necessary to learn the ins and outs of building on Blox 3D World Creator. Also, it doesn't include the first-person perspective option and sound effects found on other world-building apps, such as Minecraft Pocket Edition. Still, this is a visually distinctive world-creating app with lots of amazingly cool-looking features, such as the light elements and the animations. It offers bells and whistles only a screen can, which makes it more fun -- and worthwhile -- for kids. If your kid taps into the persistence necessary to work through the initial learning curve, Blox 3D World Creator can build up to a highly engaging play experience.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how 3D digital worlds are similar to other building toys such as erector sets, KEVA structures, or Legos. Discuss the differences and similarities between real-life toys and Blox 3D World Creator. 

  • Brainstorm strategies with your kid that can help them learn a challenging new building tool, digital game, or even academic skill in school. Suggest they apply one of those strategies if they get frustrated during their first few attempts at this app.
