FREE App: LEGO Movie Maker

LEGO Movie Maker

We are crazy about this LEGO Movie Maker App. The reason we love it so much mostly stems from its versatility. My son and I can make a very rudimentary ten second film, or we can pass it off to my husband who might just produce a full length feature soon because he is so obsessed.

Your child (or in my case, husband) chooses from just 5 different opening title scenes so it’s not too overwhelming for a little one. Then they can set up their own LEGO men (they can use anything they want really, but the LEGO men are very fun to use as characters) and snap a photo, change their position, snap another photo, etc. They can keep this up as long as their patience allows until they have a terrific stop motion animation on their hands.

When they’re done snapping away, they can adjust the speed, change the filter or add some music. Scenes can also be added or deleted to make their masterpiece just right. When it’s all said and done it’s a snap to upload this Oscar worthy production to YouTube or email it to the grandparents. It’s a beautiful thing.

There is no dialogue in these little movies, so kids really get to stretch out their imaginations and focus on story telling through a logical sequence of events. Of course, my absolute favorite thing about it, is the opportunity it offers to practice delayed gratification. When you are patient and pay attention to detail it can be so rewarding to see the greater picture evolve over the long term. That is not the easiest thing to teach!

So without further ado, here is the thrilling saga of mismatched hats my son and I created. Enjoy! The Mix Up

LEGO Movie Maker is available for iPhone, iPod and iPad. It is FREE on App Store. Sometimes developers take their apps off the App Store for updates or other reason. If you could not find the app on the App Store, we have an app that is even cooler that LEGO Movie. It is called Tootastic. It is also free.

If you would like to check it out or purchase it, please use the App Store link provided below. The cost is the same to you, but iGameMom gets a small percentage. Thanks for your support! Note: The link works for all countries.

    Do you know if this app has been removed? I have used it on my personal ipad but I am trying to find it to load for my fifth graders at school and can’t seem to find it!

      I am having the same problem – it says it’s not available in the US store. Let me know if you are able to download it and how you did it!

    • I could not find it neither. I hope this is temporarily and they will put it back. Love that app.
