SPONSORED: Soon your kids will be able to explore new Star Wars adventures in LEGO's new Star Wars™: The Force Awakens.
The LEGO® games are one of my favourite franchises in the video game world. When I was on maternity leave, my husband and I traipsed all through Middle Earth, playing LEGO® Lord of the Rings™. And while babies sleep a lot, we did have to pause and it took us a long time to get through it. But it was fun. And because LEGO® games are so kid-friendly, exposing our 4-month-old to it wasn’t an issue.
We’ve been to Hogwarts with LEGO® Harry Potter™, we’ve been through all the lands in The LEGO Movie, we even went back to Middle Earth with LEGO® The Hobbit™ and we’ve been all through the galaxy from Naboo to Tatooine to Endor with LEGO® Star Wars™: The Complete Saga.
So you can imagine my excitement when I learned that LEGO® Star Wars™: The Force Awakens is being released on the 28th of June.
LEGO games are great for your kids to play because they will take somewhat adult concepts and make them child-friendly. The controls are very easy to pick up and there are so many little comedic moments that kids would appreciate.
It looks amazing! This marks the triumphant return of the No. 1 LEGO® videogame franchise, immersing fans in the new Star Wars™ adventure like never before. Players can relive the epic action from the blockbuster film in a way that only LEGO® can offer, featuring all of the storylines from Star Wars™: The Force Awakens, retold through the clever and witty LEGO® lens. The game will also include exclusive playable content exploring New Adventures set in the time leading up to Star Wars™: The Force Awakens, providing further insight about the new movie and its characters.
