Combining the best of building and technology, the LEGO Fusion Town Master Kit became our new favorite LEGO toy. Both my kids loved creating their town and even better, both could use one kit. The kit gave them opportunities to be creative, inventive, and play for hours. What’s not to love!?
The kit includes 256 LEGO pieces. You don’t need many bricks because all the kids make is the front of buildings. After you buy the kit, you’ll also need to download the free LEGO Fusion Town Master app. Here’s the iTunes link and Android link. Each of my kids downloaded the free app and they shared the fusion baseplate to create their buildings.
LEGO Fusion Directions
1. BUILD A BUILDING FACADE.
First you’ll build the front of a building on the provided Fusion baseplate. The book that comes with this kit gives many pages of ideas as does the app, or you can make up you own building ideas.
2. TAKE A PHOTO.
Within the LEGO Town Center app, you’ll position your device’s screen to match up with the baseplate and snap a picture.
3. POSITION IN YOUR TOWN.
Drag the front of the building (that is now in the app) to the spot where you want it. (You can make new roads if you want, too.) Now you’re in the app and not in the physical world.
4. DECIDE WHAT KIND OF BUILDING IT IS.
Choose what kind of building it will be — a library, flower shop, school, etc.. The app gives you ideas of what the citizens want such as a milk store, a bike shop, and so forth.
5. STORE IS BUILT.
The app builds the store now so it’s not just the front. Sides and a roof are added.
In the town app, you get missions (take someone to a hospital, catch a robber) and play mini-games.
My daughters have already maxed out their first town and are buildling their second towns.
At first my daughters only complaint was the mayor (her character in the app) was male. But, she figured out how to make the mayor female and all was forgiven.
It’s fun to see my kids be creative building facades and how they choose what buildings will go in their towns.
The truth is we love LEGO Fusion and think you’ll love it as well.
It would make a really good gift idea for your kids holiday toy gifts, don’t you think?
