Loved by kids and parents alike, the LEGO building blocks range is as popular for its dependable quality as it is for its fun and versatility. LEGO Duplo sets are specially designed for toddlers with chunky, easy to grasp blocks and educational features. Available in a wide selection of styles to appeal to every personality, Duplo blocks come in sets that range from comprehensive play sets, basic starter kits, and add on pieces, allowing for a customizable building experience that will help improve fine motor skills and cognitive development. When choosing a LEGO Duplo set for a child, don’t forget to take age into consideration. Many Duplo sets fall into the age category of 2 to 5, but you'll also find loads of options that are suitable for toddlers as young as 1 ½ to 3. Although all Duplo blocks are designed to be safe, easy to use, and educational for little ones, choosing an age-appropriate option is a good idea.
