A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Kids can learn about strategizing, collaboration, and cause and effect as they influence the game through their creations. They play through different scenes to accomplish goals. Along the way, they can access a large variety of tools that allow them to alter the world of the game. In Disney Infinity: Toy Box 2.0, kids use their imaginations and logic to meet their goals faster and have fun while doing it.

Ease of Play

The game's controls are inexact, which could frustrate kids who are used to the console version's precision or who have specific designs in mind when building. 

Violence

Cartoon violence from a wide variety of Disney characters -- including some (such as Tinker Bell) whom you might not expect to see in a fight (or losing one). Violence includes fistfights and the use of weapons (Tinker Bell uses her wand to battle evil robots), but there is no blood. When characters lose battles, they break apart into pieces.

Sex
Language
Consumerism

The game is tied to a console game -- Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes -- and frequently offers in-app purchases (ranging from $1 to $60), with most new characters costing $3. Given the popularity of those characters, it's highly likely kids will want to add them to the game.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Disney Infinity: Toy Box 2.0 is an app tie-in with the popular console game Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes. There's some cartoon violence, including from characters you normally wouldn't see in fights, such as Tinker Bell. It also has a heavy emphasis on in-app purchases. Although it's aimed at kids, the app could end up costing parents money (or causing headaches) if their kids beg to be allowed to purchase characters and extras. A Disney account allows kids to communicate with friends and play with others.

What's it about?

In DISNEY INFINITY: TOY BOX 2.0, players are encouraged to build and create whatever they can imagine using a wide selection of materials (terrain blocks, castles, race cars and tracks, and so on). Kids also can play some modest premade games (such as fetching items across a level or fighting enemies to save a nondescript princess). The controls vary slightly depending on the character you choose as your avatar, but ultimately, this game encourages kids to make their own fun rather than telling them how they should play. Basic controls involve swiping in various directions, tapping, and using on-screen icons to maneuver your character. Levels can be transferred across platforms and brought into the console game. 

Is it any good?

Disney Infinity: Toy Box 2.0 is, above all else, a huge game. If you don't have 4.4 GB of free space on your phone or tablet, you won't even be able to load it. It's also designed to make you spend money. Players can "test out" characters for a few days on a rotating basis but then will have to pay to keep playing with them (assuming you don't have handy the Web code from the figurine you bought for the console version of the game). Wonky controls also compromise the experience.

The upside is that this is still a fun sandbox tool when you look past the commercialism and size. Kids can create areas to explore and let their imaginations run wild. And since the game is optimized for Apple's Metal graphics platform, it looks great. Ultimately, though, it's best suited for people who are already power players of the console game and have the existing character collection, the available memory, and the patience to really make the most of the game. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the differences between cartoon violence and real-world violence: What are the consequences of violence in the game? What would the consequences be in real life?

  •  Discuss your family's rules about in-app purchases before your kids play the game to set clear expectations and stave off begging.
