While the idea of a virtual building space with a wealth of bricks and features is great, it's hard not to be disappointed here. Masonry - 3D Brick Creativity doesn't quite feel like it's ready for prime time. Serious brick-building fans might be willing to overlook an interface that's less than user-friendly, a drab brown background that can't be changed, and instructions that you can't seem to scroll through. And the at-your-fingertips choices for pieces and colors is really fun. But it's nearly impossible to forgive a building tool with bricks that don't automatically align when you snap them together (a hallmark of the Lego bricks the app is mimicking). And though rotating and seeing blocks from all angles is meant to be a feature, it can be really hard to get the bricks to move the way you want them to. Those two limitations make building tedious, if not impossible. There's promise here, and a strong foundation of content, but the tools will need work before most builders will be happy to have plunked down their cash.

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.
