This week, I'm giving away a fantastic set from the famous and most loved blocks in the world, DUPLO. The set is My First Truck, and even if you're not the parent of the recommended 1.5 to 5 years of age, enter anyway – another child will love you for this gift.
The set includes 2 child figures, a cat and a buildable truck and market stall. Accessories include a crate for unloading and 16 bricks (8 pairs) decorated with food produce. Kids can build, play shop, match food bricks together, and you can even assist them to play a memory game with the pairs of products.Other reasons you want this DUPLO set:
- It's easy for small hands to build
- The parts are easily washable
- It has longevity – pieces last for ages (until the next child), or can be rebuilt into other creations
- It inspires creativity, and encourages learning, building and problem solving
- It's fun – very very fun!
DUPLO sets are available at leading toystores, and there's a massive range to suit kids' preferences and areas of interest.
I've been playing with a stunning set, Around The World, which my almost seven-year-old scoffed at, before turning to his latest LEGO City set, Prison Island. He only scoffed because LEGO City has trumped everything for the last few years, so the DUPLO will next be enjoyed by my next child (I have three big boxed filled with DUPLO waiting for her).
Around the World features 17 animals from around the world, and there are different scenes for each animal, so kids can "travel" by boat or plane to visit them.
