Children love to put things together and take them apart. You may be familiar with the Lego line of quality building sets for kids. Younger children can be introduced to the Lego world with these Duplo sets, made in bright colors and large enough for little hands to manage.
Lego Duplo sets spark the imagination of your little one. Kids will love the bright colors and the role play scenarios these sets will provide. Because the bricks are larger than the standard Lego bricks, they are easier for younger children to hold and to stick together.
The company recommends these sets as appropriate for children starting at about two years old. However the Amazon site cautions the parts are small enough that they could pose a hazard to children under three. You can be the judge of that for your own child. However, these sets will provide many hours of play value for your child.
An added feature of these Duplo bricks is the way you can pop them into the upper rack of your dishwasher to easily wash them after they are sticky with little hand prints. The bricks are sturdy enough that they can withstand many years of play and can be passed down through a family and still be a fun toy.
Here are some of my favorite Duplo sets. I hope you find one here for your child.
So true, but I bet we do most of our best thinking while playing. Playing frees our minds to think in new ways.
My husband is an engineer. He still plays with Legos when he's trying to sort out problems. But I honestly think he's just playing some times. He's just a kid at heart. When little kids come over, he's more than ready to share his Legos, if they'll let him play too!
Thanks, Katie. My kids loved these Duplo building sets, too. And later on they couldn't get too many Lego sets. That was what they asked for at every birthday and Christmas.
Little ones are less likely to feel frustrated with these Duplo bricks because they easily fit into the hands and are easy to snap together. Their colors also make them attractive to little eyes.
I like the role play elements of these Duplo sets, too. Kids can have a lot of fun imagining things from their own lives.
Ah yes these duplo toys are wonderful wonderful learning and creative toys for boys and girls. I know my two daughters have spent countless hours creating and happily playing with these gems.
