two children, Henry (age 2 ½) and Violet (age 4 ½) have never owned
a LEGO® DUPLO® set before now. We had friends who brought some over before and the kids were hooked. I especially
love our new LEGO®
DUPLO® Jake's Pirate Ship Bucky set (Item # 10514) because it comes in large
pieces. I am
always concerned about my kids putting small pieces in their mouth, but I’m not
concerned with these DUPLO
also really like that two or three kids can easily play together.
son and daughter were thrilled with the fact that the DUPLO
set is based
on Jake and the Neverland Pirates, one
of their favorite cartoons. They truly enjoy the hands-on active play that comes
along with the whole DUPLO tradition.
Too many toys are now less physical, and that’s not a good thing in my book. Both
of my kids love the fact that they can pour the whole set of
DUPLO bricks out
on the kitchen island, and within a few seconds, they are building something
fun and different.
interact tremendously with the toy since they are both constantly trying to
impress the other with their latest creation or idea! I honestly think that
my kids to think about where and why the pieces go together. I also see the
kids watching each other quite a bit as well. I find this very impressive
because I see that as a sign that they are exercising their patience and
learning from one another.
