My daughter who is now nearly 3 has never really been a big fan of toys, she has had pretty much every toy imaginable under the sun, but to be honest about 90% of them have remained untouched other than a few favourites her dolls, play kitchen, arts and crafts, playdough and books. For her first birthday she received for a present a box of Duplo which was an ice cream set where you stack up different coloured blocks made to look like scoops of ice creams into block cones, well as my daughter grew a bit older she became obsessed with these blocks, so for her second birthday I decided to add to this collection by buying her the Duplo Creative Animals set as she is rather animal crazy!
The Duplo Creative Animal set comes with 5 cardboard inspiration cards (which I laminated for safe keeping), which show children (and adults) step by step how to build each of the animals which is really helpful, especially for really young children. The set consists of 27 brightly coloured pieces of Duplo, which has some fun designs on it such as spots for the dog and the elephant and cute little faces for each of the animals that you can build. In the set there is enough pieces of Duplo to build 5 different animals, a worm, a elephant, a dog, a giraffe and a rabbit. My daughter loved at first getting me to build the animals for her but after a while and with some guidance began to build them herself, always insisting that each of the animals be built each time the Duplo came out, it kind of became a ritual that each time the animals were built that we sing Old McDonald using these animals in the song.
Duplo although rather expensive to buy, even when on special is a worthwhile product to buy made of strong, high quality materials and the size of the blocks is perfect for littlies who are still to small to use Lego. It provides hours of fun and fosters great curiosity and imagination and is fantastic for hand-eye and fine motor development. Definitely a product worth buying which we will continue to add to over the coming birthdays and Christmas i'm sure.
