It’s cool to be kind in our new Gloom Busters gameWe know kids love playing our LEGO® video games, so we’ve created Gloom Busters to help children learn good digital behavior in a fun gaming environment. As they drive wacky LEGO vehicles, kids are encouraged to help characters overcome common online challenges, such as cyberbullying and password security, with the aim of gathering up different LEGO elements to fight back the ‘digital darkness’ known as the gloom.Play now
Empower your kids to Doom the GloomIn this interactive experience, kids join Captain Safety and his hero squad to defeat the ‘gloom’, which comes from how we treat each other, or from meanies and scammers.

Safe social media for kidsOur online experiences are safe-by-design, like our social media platform LEGO® Life that avoids sharing personal information, images and locations. Instead, we use a random 3-word generator to give every child a funny name like ‘DukeCharmingShrimp’ or ‘ChairmanWilyDolphin.’ Accounts are created with Verified Parental Consent to make sure parents are involved all the way. All comments and photos are controlled by trained moderators, so things are kept positive and fun. The safe-by-design policy extends to our digital games as well.Learn more
