Lego DUPLO blocks are always a huge hit in my house with my toddler. Christopher is at an age where he’s starting to understand that books convey true meaning. That’s why I was so excited to try out Read and Play Lego DUPLO blocks.

The concept behind Read and Play Lego DUPLO blocks is simple; it combines a story with Lego building instructions– Perfect for any toddler or preschooler! Combine a story with step by step instructions to create pieces of the story; from stories about animals and insects to cars and airplanes!

The Read and Play sets capture many skills important to early childhood development. Children and adults are engaging in play and storytelling together. By building and creating items directly from the story, your child has the opportunity to retell the story with props. The Lego DUPLO blocks give your child a hands on, interactive experience with reading to help them grow to love books. Children learn that books are meaningful and can convey more than simply a story.

Lego DUPLO Read and Play Sets:

  • A new play experience for preschoolers that combines building bricks and a story book.
  • Interactive play experience, read the story as your child build along
  • Brings stories to life

My son’s favorite set from the Lego DUPLO Read and Play sets is the Let’s Go! Vroom! set. He loved building the airplane!

While building the airplane, he was engaged and learning new vocabulary. At first, he thought it was a helicopter. Then, we talked about the propeller, which taught him new language and that both airplanes and helicopters can have propellers. He flew the airplane around all night!

We love that the story goes right along with the Lego creations.

One thing I always love about Legos is that there truly isn’t a right or wrong way to use them. Some of Christopher’s creations weren’t as they appear in the story–and that’s okay! He’s welcome to follow the story or create in his own way.

Christopher loved setting up the farm animals!
