LittleBigPlanet (Series) Review

This creative play starts simply and is accessible to any age, but then can be made more complex and powerful so that full games can be created by dragging, dropping, connecting and shaping elements with the PlayStation controller. The levels the player creates can then be shared with the community.
It's a great way to start understanding how video games are made, even if all you do is create a rocket charged skateboard. But like the more recent incarnation, Dreams it's a powerful tool in its own right that has led to many players getting work in the games industry.
Rating: PEGI 7+, ESRB EVERYONE

You will need PlayStation Plus to play online with PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita. You will need PlayStation Plus (must be 18 to create, then create sub-accounts for younger players who need be set as 13 or older) to play online with PlayStation 4.
PlayStation 4 has a range of accessibility settings. Some are system only, some work in games (invert colours and button mapping)... read more about system accessibility settings.
The following games are like LittleBigPlanet. They address a similar topic or offer a similar way to play. They are good options to play next and also good alternatives to LittleBigPlanet for younger age ratings.
