LEGO just keeps on producing toys that kids love and the LEGO Dimensions is one of the sets that you can bet will be on every kid’s wish list. The Dimensions set of these toys was created not long after the release of The LEGO Movie.
The movie was such a hit that toys were needed to allow kids to be more interactive in a virtual world as well as still have the feel of the original LEGO play. This one is part real play and part computer game.
The fun begins thanks to the portal or vortex that swept away some of the well known characters. These heroes were drawn into another dimension where they had to fight for what was right and defeat evil villains who wanted to run the show.
The set is an endless time of adventure and imagination as kids travel through the different worlds to assist the heroes in making sure that order is once again restored. With each of the different sets that are available, kids will be given different minifigures.
These minifigures are exclusive to one set but they can all be used in combination with other minifigures. And what one minifigure has another one can use in a different world. For example, if one minifigure hero has a vehicle that he uses, in the Dimensions world, another hero can also use that vehicle.
The Dimensions sets are the most interactive LEGO creation so far and there are limitless ways that a child can create different missions and adventures. Whatever his imagination likes is how he can link the different heroes on teams or as individuals.
There are several different sets that are suitable for Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U and PlayStation 4. Each of these sets have different minifigures and different tools and vehicles.
If your child doesn’t have any of the LEGO Dimensions yet, you’ll want to start with the starter pack. This is the portal that allows the physical minifigures your child has to enter the game.
While this is a computer game, it’s much more than that. It’s also a great learning tool because kids will have to use their thinking skills to solve the way around obstacles to achieve the character’s goal.
LEGO offers a ton of different characters, so your child can start out with his or her favorite. You can get ones like Scooby Doo or Lord of the Rings characters. Each of these sets is compatible with the other, so you’ll be able to expand both the characters and the fun that your child can have.
