With big colored pieces for small hands, Lego Duplo Big Construction Site is an ideal building toy for preschoolers. All kids like building things and knocking them down so they are going to love this construction site set that includes a truck, bulldozer and crane and a lot of other great accessories.
Duplo is Lego's range of building toys for younger kids and they recommend this set for ages 2-5 years old. While construction sets are traditionally a 'Boys toy' there is no reason why girls wouldn't enjoy playing with this set as well. There is plenty of imaginative play to be had with this set and even if your children aren't particularly interested in 'Construction' they will love all the different moving parts and features included.
Duplo aren't lying when they say this is a big set.
There are also other bricks to build or be carried in the truck or grabbed by the crane.
If you have kids that play well together this will keep more than one child amused and there is plenty of repeat play to be had with this set.
If you children already have Duplo sets this one should fit in nicely with any that they already own.
We try to be objective in our reviews and tell it like it is, if we find something we don't like we aren't shy about it. We struggled hard to find anything negative to say here. Because it is a fairly large set with 67 pieces it might be difficult for very young children to assemble and they will need help with it. Apart from that this is a great toy with plenty of creative uses.
Maybe there also should have been a lady construction worker!
With three different machines to build and all the included accessories and figures this is certainly a Duplo set that is worth the money. Duplo is also very durable so should survive any rough play that it might receive.
A big durable 3-in-1 brick building set with lots of potential for creative play with the added bonus of helping fine motor skills as well as problem solving skills in learning how to put it together. Once built, it has enough features and detail to keep your kids at play for a long time. Great for indoor or outdoor use, just set up a bucket of water and some sand and you'll have hours of peace!
