All right, so my 5 year old is a die hard Lego fan. He loves Ninjago and we’ve been to Lego Land several times and he’s still as obsessed now as he was over a year ago. So back in August, I got him Lego Dimensions for our PS4 to try out. He plays video games with his uncle and dad sometimes and seems to enjoy them so I figured it’d be a fun thing for us to do together.
Some levels/add ons are probably not age appropriate and the game is admittedly a little hard for a 5 year old. But overall, he loves this game and I even play it myself sometimes. There’s lots of child appropriate add ons like the Fantastic Beasts story pack or the Powerpuff Girls Theme Pack. He enjoys helping us put together the characters and vehicles when we get new sets and overall the game is simple enough for him even though he does need some help. It’s also multiplayer so we can play together which is a big plus for me.
Word of advice: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF YOUNG CHILDREN WHEN NOT BEING USED!!! Especially if you have younger children in the house. Because there is nothing more frustrating than losing pieces of characters and vehicles. Also, buy a storage container for everything and keep it put away. I recommend something like this. LifeSmart USA Stackable Storage Container Blue – 50 Adjustable Compartments
So while this game is probably more suitable for children (and adults) aged 7+ or so, I definitely have no regrets in getting it for my 5 year old, and his 3 year old brother even likes to play with him sometimes just making the little characters run around and break things. I do highly recommend this game for your lego lovers. Some of the characters change as you get further in to game play, so if you have any additional pieces after building them, keep track of them. It’s an additional level of interaction that makes it more interesting. Different types of characters can unlock different features and find items you wouldn’t be able to find otherwise, so try to build up a fun variety of characters. Some of my favorite packs are the Harry Potter Team Pack and the Scooby Doo Team Pack.
So seriously, get this game for your game loving kids. There’s lots of humorous lines from the characters and the additional packs open up new worlds you can explore so it’s really an expansive game with a lot to do and enjoy. Let me know what you think if you try out the game or if you already have it!
