I spent two weeks in Alaska recently visiting my son and famiy. My grandson is 18 months old and is a typical little toddler. One of his favorite toys to play with is his tub of Duplos. We made tall stacks, short stacks, buildings - you name it we made it. These blocks are made of bright colors and sturdy plastic pieces that are very easy for small hands to snap together and take apart. The sky is the limit on what you can build with the Duplo blocks - you are only limited by your imagination.
Duplo building blocks are on my list of toys to buy for my grandson for Christmas this year. They make basic sets where you build what you want and they also make Duplo sets that make specific things, such as cars and houses to name a few. If you have a small child and you want to encourage them to use their imagination then Duplos is the toy to purchase. They are affordable and you will be sure to find a set to fit your budget.
