Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Beautiful virtual versions of well-loved building blocks provide ample opportunity for play, light learning -- and brand loyalty. Sharp, colorful graphics are very responsive to kids' touch. And it's fun to see them come "alive" as they move or make sound. Just as with the real blocks, there's lots of space for open-ended imaginative play, though each themed scene has only a few parts to play with. Games with learning goals introduce just a touch of school-readiness type content, but without much depth. The suggestions for co-play are really nice to help guide parents towards interacting with their kids while they play, which is right on with this age group. One major downside is that play with this virtual collection is necessarily more limited than play with actual blocks (of any brand). Each mini-game has just small collection of blocks to use, a small building space to fill, or limited capabilities. But, Lego Duplo World is a good option for when it's not practical to have a box of blocks around, like on a long plane ride.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
