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. Though this isn't designed as an educational game, kids can learn through play, using logic and creativity to make story lines and adventures for the characters. Character choices include a diverse representation of male and female characters, though that may involve an in-app purchase. Overall, kids can have fun, develop creativity, and use problem-solving skills playing Disney Infinity: Toy Box 3.0.

Ease of Play

On-screen instructions guide kids through play, and characters in each toy set act as guides. Fight difficulty can be set to easy, medium, hard, or expert, but moving and controlling combat can be tricky on a touch screen.

Violence

Cartoon violence from a wide variety of Disney characters -- including some (such as Olaf, Minnie and Mickey Mouse) whom you might not expect to see in a fight. Violence includes fist fights and the use of weapons, but there is no blood. When characters lose battles, they break apart into pieces.

Sex

Some female characters wear tight costumes with minimal cleavage.

Language
Consumerism

New characters and toys can be earned through play, but they are also available for in-app purchase. All of the characters included are heavily cross-marketed.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Disney Infinity: Toy Box 3.0  follows up on Disney Infinity: Toy Box 2.0, introducing new characters and adventures, and ties in with the console game and game packs. The download is free but requires 2.24 gigabytes of storage space and includes in-app purchases galore. Kids can buy dozens of characters, toys, accessories, power-ups, bundles, and sets, each ranging from $1.99 to $9.99. All characters fight in the adventures that involve conflict, falling into pieces (heads and limbs flying) when they lose. If the app is logged in to a Disney account, kids can connect and play with friends. It can be played in 11 languages.

What's it about?

As its name indicates, DISNEY INFINITY: TOY BOX 3.0 is a virtual toy box filled with different characters and play sets. Kids select a character from the unlocked options and choose an adventure from many possibilities, including exploring, fighting, and creating new worlds. Each character has different moves and features, and kids can design adventures themselves, creating as they play. They can save the different toy boxes and play cooperatively with friends connected through their Disney accounts. The characters and scenes from Toy Box 1.0 and 2.0 are included here too.

Is it any good?

Amazing graphics and robust options for creative play come at a premium that requires device space and in-app purchases. Though it may be pricey and take up most of a tablet's storage, the game allows kids to create their own adventures, so they'll be immersed in play for an infinity (almost). The options for creative play are impressive -- characters from different stories interact -- but they're still licensed characters with their own personalities and story lines, so kids aren't totally free to be as creative as they can be in other sandbox-style play. The fight scenes are challenging, too, and some scenes are quite dark and spooky, so even though Olaf, Minnie, and Mickey are included, this is a game more fitting for Star Wars and Marvel fans. It's also possible that kids not already familiar with the Disney Infinity series will be overwhelmed with the multitude of features, but most will just jump in and figure it out. With the addition of Star Wars characters and slightly improved touchscreen mechanics, this installment has more to offer than previous versions.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about creative storytelling and how they can include preexisting characters in other kinds of play. Challenge kids to break the characters out of the story stereotypes, too, changing their names and personalities if they want.

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