Important information
• The LEGO Life app is FREE to download.
• It’s suitable from 5 years and up, but kids and tweens aged between 8-12 are likely to enjoy it the most.
• There’s no third-party advertising. LEGO marketing content and information is served, for instance LEGO news about LEGO sets and other LEGO games, in hope of inspiring children’s creative play.

 

The developer says the app is 100% safe for kids. To fully enjoy the app, kids will need to ask permission from a parent or guardian to create an account. Users are assigned a random username when they signup, all user comments are moderated, no direct chatting is allowed, and any images that reveal personally identifiable information are removed from the service.

As an added fun benefit, the app also includes a LEGO keyboard for use in iMessage!

LEGO Life is available for iOS and Android devices in the U.S., the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Denmark, Austria, and Switzerland. [GET IT FOR iOS HERE]
