Lego Duplo’s toys are designed for small hands and big imaginations, and 2016 marks an exciting year for the brand.
The My First range provides toddlers with the perfect introduction to basic construction. The easy to build starter sets provide lots of opportunities for pre-schoolers to play and learn, and the brightly coloured sets stimulate creativity, encourage role-play and conversation.
Lego Duplo’s My First Garden develops early building skills as toddlers stack the bricks to make their plants grow, with sunflowers, tomatoes, carrots and potatoes to choose from. Parents can use the rain/sun decorated brick to help their child learn about how plants grow from the ground to flower or fruit.
Another new addition to the Lego Duplo range is My First Truck, which is easy to build using chunky Duplo bricks and is designed to help children to learn how to match pairs. It comes with eight pairs of colourful food-decorated bricks for matching or memory games. There is also a market stall, two characters and a cat to encourage role-play possibilities.
My First Rocket is a great introduction to building. Children can stack chunky bricks to make a colourful rocket and a planet, and there are building cards in the set for added inspiration. Kids can also develop early counting skills by matching bricks, decorated with a moon, two planets and three stars, with corresponding number bricks.
My First Caterpillar gives toddlers everything they need to transform their caterpillar into a butterfly. Children can use the brightly coloured bricks, decorated with an apple, two carrots or three flowers, to encourage counting.
