Building with LEGO can definitely make you happy, but it can also help you explore other emotions with the LEGO Duplo My First Emotions construction set. This comes with 28 pieces so that even the youngest builders can practice fine motor skills as they build brightly colored characters with double-sided faces. Turn the face bricks to explore different facial expressions and use the double-sided story bricks to create stories about those moods and feelings. Is the green character angry because his soccer ball is deflated? Does the red character feel embarrassed because he dropped his ice cream cone on the ground? Is the baby character sleeping because it's nighttime? Or maybe the blue character was sad because his teddy bear was broken, but now he's happy because the teddy bear is fixed!
As with all Duplo sets, this one's chunky bricks make it easy for the smallest hands to have a safe and satisfying building experience. And toddlers will enjoy exploring the faces of each character and building the characters however they want. We think this set will offer the most educational value when there is some parent-child interaction with the play, especially for the youngest kids.
LEGO Duplo My First Emotions is for ages 1.5 to 3. It's a nice introduction to building and emotions for preschool builders.
There are no instructions with this set, just some pictures on the box of how kids can build. Especially for the youngest kids, this set will be most beneficial when parents play, too.
