Lego Duplo Creative Play Box of Fun
Many Duplo sets are packaged with one project to build. That can be fun, but for beginners, we prefer a more open-ended set of bricks. This 65-piece box has the makings for buildings, a vehicle base, a dog and character figure, not to mention a variety of colors and sizes of bricks that can be put together and knocked over in endless ways. Try not to get too engaged with replicating the pictures on the box. Explore how wide or high a train of blocks you can put together. Introducing how they connect is challenging enough for beginners. Use all the color words as you build together; make an all red something, or a red and yellow something. Make an arch that the wheeled vehicle can go under. These are marked 1 ½ -5. We don’t think toddlers under two will do anything but spill and dump. They will not have the dexterity to put them together...but they will like knocking over something you build.
