Metaverse Playground - LEGO teams up with Epic Games 

We don’t know exactly what the metaverse will eventually look like, but we can say for sure that there will be more than one metaverse and all of them will be interconnected. And because we all have different needs and visions about the ideal world in which we will work and play, kids feel the same.

LEGO Group and Epic Games just announced their partnership for building a metaverse safe and fun for children. For the last 90 years, Lego Group entertained millions of children with their lego bricks, that even today are their main product.

In 2016, Lego Group developed in partnership with UNICEF the first fully live moderated social app for children having in mind safe digital play experiences for children. They intend to engage in the digital experience with the entire family so they can enjoy it together. 

Both companies agreed to follow the same principles during the creation of this project.

Safeguard children’s privacy.

Making the safety and wellbeing of the children a priority and protecting their rights.

Giving adults and children tools that give them control over their digital experience.

Niels B Christiansen, CEO of The LEGO Group said:

“Kids enjoy playing in digital and physical worlds and move seamlessly between the two. We believe there is huge potential for them to develop life-long skills such as creativity, collaboration and communication through digital experiences. But we have a responsibility to make them safe, inspiring and beneficial for all. Just as we’ve protected children’s rights to safe physical play for generations, we are committed to doing the same for digital play. We look forward to working with Epic Games to shape this exciting and playful future.” 

Tim Sweeney, CEO & Founder, Epic Games said:

“The LEGO Group has captivated the imagination of children and adults through creative play for nearly a century, and we are excited to come together to build a space in the metaverse that’s fun, entertaining, and made for kids and families.”
