With the 25 pieces in the LEGO Duplo Creative Animals set, toddlers and preschoolers can build five different animals out of chunky Duplo bricks. The animals include a dog, caterpillar, giraffe, bunny, and a blue animal that may or may not be an elephant. There are collectible cards that feature pictures of each of the Duplo animals, but neither the cards nor the packaging tell you what each animal is.
This small construction set offers a nice introduction to building for younger kids. The Duplo bricks are large and chunky to make it easy and safe for small hands to build and play. This also helps with fine motor skills and encourages open-ended and creative play.
LEGO Duplo Creative Animals is for ages 1.5 and up.
We wish the animals were listed somewhere so we could figure out what the blue animal is supposed to be. But perhaps that's where the "creative animals" part comes in. (We're guessing elephant, but tell us what you think.) But, as with any toy, just use your imagination and it becomes whatever you want!
