LEGO AppBrick – one of Forbe’s Top 10 Toys for 2015!

The world of LEGO is one that kids love to be part of. They get to use their imagination and creative skills to experience amazing adventures. Each time LEGO introduces something new, it’s always packed with innovative thinking coupled with technology – and that’s what happened with the new LEGO AppBrick.
These are LEGO bricks that you use with your fingers on a tablet. What the AppBricks do is combine the physical appeal of the LEGO worlds with the digital world to extend features and playtime for kids.
There are all sorts of things that kids can do with these virtual bricks. For starters, they can build gadgets and explore new worlds. They come in different sets that have the AppBricks to make the gadgets with.
Kids use the bricks on their tablets and as a result, they gain access to more worlds to explore. The bricks give kids the ability to have access to different features involving the game as well as access to clues for that world.
When kids use the AppBricks, they’ll have the inside knowledge that they need to use to be able to triumph over the supervillains. They’ll be able to be the heroes that can save the LEGO worlds.
What the toy does is to combine the real LEGO bricks with virtual worlds. Kids can build with LEGO bricks and then use them in the online games simply with the touch of their tablet.
So kids get the best of both of the LEGO worlds for double the fun and problem solving. Each of the different sets will have different things for the kids to do. You’ll get minifigures that are exclusive to one particular set.

These minifigures will have their own different gadgets. The apps that give the kids access to the bricks is the same app in all the sets but the mission for each of the ultra agents will be different.
The AppBricks count will vary, too – depending on the type of set that you purchase. Kids can gain access to the Ultra Agents game online. These are very hands on games that require coordination to complete the worlds.
What kids have to do with the bricks is put them on the face of the tablet and that works to make the world unfold digitally as kids begin to explore. LEGO does offer different APPBricks in their sets, and the since the sets are both real life as well as virtual, kids can use them apart from a tablet. The bricks are fairly small at 1×1 and there are multiple sets that kids can collect.
One such product meant for ages 9-14 is the LEGO Ultra Agents Ultracopter vs. Antimatter Toy.
Here is one meant for ages 8-14 called LEGO Ultra Agents Invisible Gold Getaway Toy.
