Once you have everything built just the way you like it, scan your creation into the app and get ready to get mixing! Add music from a list of over 60 popular songs, add everything from confetti showers to DJs scratches, and bring your minifigs to life as they do silly dance moves before your eyes. You can even jump into the scene and dance alongside them! When your masterpiece is complete, you can share your creations with your friends on the VIDIYO app, and new tracks will be added every week, so you can always be creating at your very best!
