LittleBigPlanet is a puzzle platformer video game series created by Media Molecule. The series was launched in 2008 with the PlayStation 3 game, LittleBigPlanet[1] which was followed in 2009 by a PlayStation Portable version of the same name developed by SCE Cambridge Studio.[2] An upcoming sequel to the PlayStation 3 version, LittleBigPlanet 2, is planned for release in November 2010. The games are all published by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

The series is noted for having a strong focus on user-generated content. In all of the games, the player can build their own levels and share them online with other users on the PlayStation Network. This is reflected is the series' tagline, "Play. Create. Share." The player is also able to customise other areas of the game such as their player character, Sackboy (also referred to as Sackgirl or gender-neutral Sackperson).

The games in the series have been well received by critics with the PlayStation 3 game and the PSP game attaining Metacritic scores of 95%[3] and 87%[4] respectively.
