My kids love Disney Infinity, and especially the Disney Infinity Lone Ranger Play Set Pack. I am not a huge proponent of video games, but I really like Disney Infinity. There is the regular game play and then there is also a huge creative outlet to it. My kids can build their own worlds, use different music, add animals and people…it is limitless. In fact, my kids would rather build their own place to play than do the missions that come along with the game.
The Disney Infinity Starter Pack comes with the base, 3 Infinity characters, the hexagon base piece that allows you to play with those three characters in their own world, an Infinity Power Disc and more. Ours came with Sully, Jack Sparrow, and Mr. Incredible. The power base piece allows you to play in those three worlds. The graphics are incredible. There is a Toy Box mode where they can buy more things with sparks and coins they have earned during their missions. The items they buy in the Toy Box can then be used in their own world they have created.
Kids can play two player mode anytime in the Toy Box area and if they wanted to go online, there is a way to play 4 players at once. We own the Wii, and that is how it works with our game system, it may be different in other systems. When the player is playing in an adventure, only the characters for that adventure can be played. For instance, Jack Sparrow cannot play in the Monsters University area. The characters can be used anywhere in the Toy Box mode though. In order to get a new adventure, you must buy another Hexagon base piece that comes in a set with two characters. The little power discs are cool; you can use those to change music, backgrounds and more.
One of my kids favorite play sets is the Disney Infinity Lone Ranger Play Set Pack. It comes with the Lone Ranger, Tonto and one of the Hexagon power bases. In this adventure there is an Old West town in danger from a gang of outlaws and the Lone Ranger and Tonto must save the day. There is a mission where you ride on a train and shoot balls at targets. As you play and win missions you get more toys. For instance, you get a train to drive around in or an elephant to ride. On top of that, the Lone Ranger and Tonto say different things and they sound just like the people from the movie. In order to play this set, you have to have the Hexagon Power Base.
There is a lot to Disney Infinity and I tried to just hit the finer notes. I just love to watch my kids create their own little worlds. One kid will have enemies galore in their world and the other will have cute little animals. It is fun to watch their personalities come out. Disney Infinity is a great for sick day/rainy day/snow day fun!
