I am not quite sure how my daughter became hooked on Little Big Planet, all I know is that she is a fanatic about it now. This little game is the cutest thing ever. As a player, you get your own "sack person" which you can customize however you want. There are opportunities throughout the game which will allow you to collect skins, stickers, hair, costumes...everything you can imagine that can be used to decorate your little person. This sac person lives in a "pod," which you are able to decorate as well. The game levels are either pre-set in the game or you can also play levels that have been designed and created by fellow players. You can even create, play, and publish your own levels. This game has been fantastic in allowing my daughter's creativity to blossom. She may not realize it, but in creating her worlds she is learning cause and effect, learning about gravity, and getting a jump on a technical background (however light it may be) when it comes to creating playable video games. The only caveat I would have about this game is that it does allow multigaming. This means your child can play online (and chat with) others who are playing the game. I have never had an issue with that aspect of this game, personally, and happily give it 4/5 stars.
