Lego Duplo Toy Building Sets - Perfect Toys For Toddlers to Five Year Olds

Lego is a Danish toy company that got its beginnings in the 1930's. Originally, and still, based in Denmark, the brand has been acclaimed worldwide for its line of construction toys. In 1934 the products, as well as the company, officially became known as Lego. The Lego toy building bricks come with various themed and designed series of sets. Most of these sets cater to a particular age group. One of the well known series is the Lego Duplo line.
The Lego Duplo bricks are well built and nontoxic. The larger pieces allow toddlers to use the bricks and blocks with their own little hands. Building instruction manuals come in every box set. If the instructions are lost, any parent or older child can visit Lego online and get guides in helping the children build their three dimensional designs.
The Lego Duplo sets are specially made for toddlers with ages ranging from 18 months to 5 years. The Lego pieces' size is eight times larger in volume than the average Lego brick. The dimension is also twice the height, length and width of the conventional Lego blocks. The concept was first introduced in the year 1969, available in only four basic colors: red, white, blue and yellow. Throughout the years, the collection has evolved to different Lego brick sets including train sets, dinosaur lairs, farm and ranch themes and more. Lego Duplo has also partnered with popular children's program and cartoon franchises such as Bob the Builder from the famous TV series. These four feature Bob, Scoop and all Bob's friends. The Thomas & Friends series of toy sets are very popular as a result of partnering with the famous Thomas the Tank product line.
