Interactive LEGO Games On iPhone and iPad

Looking for a novelty gift?

In our ever changing world of technology, the introduction of the iphone and ipad into our lives has significantly changed the way we work and play.

The humble old LEGO set has continued to develop also and has continued to entertain children, young and old, around the world.

Just when you thought you had seen it all, comes the first ever interactive LEGO game to use with your iphone, ipad or ipod touch.

Chances are you know someone who just loves LEGO? Chances are they live in your home.

Time then, to introduce 'Life Of George'.

This is the world's first ever developed interactive LEGO game that uses real LEGO pieces and an app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

Simply Amazing!

LEGO Game Life Of George iPhone

The Life Of George is a must have game for any LEGO enthusiast with an iPhone. Some would call it a match made in heaven!

Brand new LEGO brick capture technology, turns an already incredible iPhone (iPod Touch or iPad) into a brand new interactive experience. A combination of real LEGO pieces and an app which must be downloaded from the iTunes app store makes this the ultimate novelty gift.

The Life Of George boxed game comes with 144 LEGO pieces, a play mat, a George Sticker and a guide to get you going. There are two different ways to play this game; either as a single player or multi-player mode, or creation mode where you are able to design your own LEGO models. Depending on your mood and LEGO experience, there is an option for everyone. Novice or Expert!

There are also an incredible 12 levels to the game, each with 10 different challenges to complete before reaching the next level. Within each challenge, you are required to build using the real LEGO brick pieces. If you are playing in the multi-player mode you can compete against your opponent to see who can build the model in the fastest time; for example. Each and every LEGO model created is captured and saved within the Life Of George app in a 'My Life' album.

Once the app is downloaded an internet connection is not required which means this is a fantastic portable game that can be taken in the car, on a picnic, to grandma's house or anywhere.

This certainly can provide hours of fun for all ages, or even longer than that if you select the 'hard' setting as opposed to the 'easy' setting. With so many different puzzle combinations to play this is a brilliant game. There are also add on packs that you can purchase from the app store themed for Christmas, for example, so the fun will never end!

The Life Of George interactive LEGO game works with the iPhone 4, iPhone 3Gs and iPod Touch and iPad 2

LEGO Storage Ideas

If you are a LEGO enthusiast you will no doubt be literally swimming in LEGO pieces. They will be everywhere (unfortunately).

There are many ways to store LEGO. Here are some ideas that may work for you in your own home, depending on how much or how little of these incredibly addictive colored bricks you have in your home, whether they are random pieces or sets, what space you have, your budget and how accessible they need to be:

Ideas from least amount (of LEGO) to greatest amount (of LEGO)

  • An old egg carton - different colors in different compartments
  • A handful of zip lock bags for small pieces or just retaining all of your LEGO manuals
  • An old shoe box - throw it all in together or use little zip lock bags for separating colors, sizes.
  • LEGO Bags - portable little bags resembling buckets - colorful and handy
  • A see-through plastic storage box, preferably with wheels - an idea here could be to use shoe boxes to gather different LEGO sized pieces or themes and store each shoe box in the storage container.
  • Stackable storage boxes - when one just isn't enough
  • LEGO Bins - foldable and can allow you to store your LEGO according to themes such as Star Wars or Cars
  • The super-dooper LEGO storage box and sorter
  • Got a spare wall? Thought about attaching a LEGO wall?

And if you still cannot fit it all into one of these ideas, and you have a spare room, maybe it is time to make a LEGO room. Let the kids (and big kids) go wild and just close the door.

Out of sight out of mind.

LEGO Game Tip

Lay a blanket or special play rug out before the LEGO comes out to 'play' therefore when the little fingers have finished being creative, just pick up the ends of the blanket and pour all the pieces back into your storage container!

If you are looking for the gift that keeps on giving and you have LEGO on the brain, consider introducing George into your family.

The Life Of George is going to be a great new family member. If it is the little ones who are planning to play with George, have you considered a fun yet safe way to protect your iPhone and iPad at the same time? We don't them broken now do we?

There are a lot more interactive apps and accessories on the market, particularly for the iPad. Take a look today!

      I just discovered a new LEGO game for iOS: LEGO Harry Potter. You might be interested. :)

      My nephews are still at the Duplo stage, but they love it. They have stackable storage boxes, which they also use to hide some of my stuff, though. :S Thanks for the tip on LEGO games on iOS. I will take a look at that.

      That's very interesting. I am not a Lego fan, but my grandson that is now in college always loved Legos.He may like the iPhone game. I'm going to tell him about this hub.
