We cannot get enough of the playing video games in our home!!  LEGO Worlds and Cars 3 Driven to Win are one of the best family friendly games that everyone can enjoy.  It has been really hot and humid the last few days so we have been staying indoors with homemade frozen lemonades and the AC on.  On days where it's too hot to be out, unless ocean side, we choose to do different projects together indoors, or have some bonding time in front of the screen playing video games as a family.  These are the two of the hottest games you have to check out.  Getting creative, giggling over getting instructions from your children on how-to-play are just one of the reasons you should not only let your children have game time, but play with them as well.

Video games weren't as prominent in every household when I was growing up, but one of my best memories was playing along with my mom and brother.  We'd stay up late, my mom would want us to stop but then join in only to play more.  I always tell my children, I'd rather them be playing than watching someone else play.  My son is the primary player, I come and go since I have so much else to do during the day, and my 4 year-old fights me for the remote every time I try to sit and play.  These games have become our new favorites to play together.  It has truly surprised us in how much fun LEGO Worlds is, and surprised at how fun a little innocent competitiveness can be with Cars 3: Driven to Win.

The LEGO Worlds is unlike any other LEGO video game we have tried before.  It is a combination of Minecraft - the building and creative play part of it, combined with LEGO components that is unique and so much fun!  It requires creativity while exploring, discovering, and building.  The worlds are made up of bricks where you can add onto using various tools.  Tools are earned and discovered along the way as well as the discovery of every new piece around the different worlds.  The characters are amazing and so far seemingly endless.  The ability to customize your character and choose from so many that you discovered is amazing.  There are mountains, water worlds, and a wide range of worlds where you get to discover dragons, helicopters, motorbikes, alligators, sharks, and so so much more!!
Players can embark on a quest to find a sword for a king, protect a farmer from a zombie invasion or build a home for a caveman; there are always new things to discover as they aim to become a Master Builder.

My 9-year old said that it is easy enough to play, but not too easy that it is boring.  He enjoys a challenge but doesn't enjoy when it takes the fun away.  He is fairly a beginner in video gaming so I respect his opinions when it comes to games geared for children in his age group.  I love the games myself, it is easy to play but like my son said - not too easy.  Surprisingly my 4-year-old has had no problem playing too.  In LEGO Worlds she typically roams around looking for a horse or cool creature to ride on. My husband grabbed the remote to help my daughter out at one point, and almost didn't let go of the remote.  So it's safe to say, it's a family-friendly game that the whole family an truly enjoy.

The Cars 3: Driven to Win is classic racing game but with added Cars features.  Children love the Cars 3 racing game, the graphics are super fun and the racetracks are amazing if you have seen to the film and recognize it.  There are up to 20 tracks set in the 13 iconic locations from the film where 20 customizable characters like Jackson Storm and Cruz Ramirez, along with the beloved Lightning McQueen can race.  It is great for players of all ages and skill levels.  The game is available on the Nintendo Switch and Wii U making it a perfect game for road trips or anytime away from home.  It is of course available for the Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
Players can hone a wide variety of skills and abilities including Drifting, Turbo, In The Zone, Two-wheel Driving, Driving Backwards and Side-Bash.

I personally love that although there are moderately violent parts in LEGO Worlds, it isn't graphic and inappropriate for children.  So far, it truly seems like there is no end to the fun of these games.  For LEGO Worlds the game is very much controlled by the player, where you want to discover, build, and adventure is all up to you.  The 20 tracks and customizing gives young children a step into video gaming fun, while still being fun for older kids.  I have to be a grown-up and make the game time end, or else we would all play with it forever.  Both games are a must-have family video games that allow you to play with friends and family with a split-screen.
