Just in time for Christmas, our top five favourite LEGO Duplo sets…

The boys have had a ball (or maybe, a “block”) being LEGO Duplo ambassadors this year. We racked and stacked and bashed and built enough LEGO constructions to last a lifetime. Kidding. You can never get tired of playing with LEGO. I asked the kids what their favourite LEGO Dupo sets have been so far, and which ones they’ve asked Father Christmas to bring them. This is the ultimate list for grannies and grandpas, aunties and uncles, and anyone who wants to make this Christmas the best ever for little LEGO lovers. 1. Lego Duplo Mickey Mouse Oh, Toodles!

5 ways playing with LEGO helps my boys learn and grow

Sponsored post I need to show you all something. In the last few months, my boys have been obsessed with their LEGO Duplo sets. We’ve even filmed a couple of videos of them playing with their blocks. In fact, LEGO sculptures are becoming quite serious now. Just look at my son Ryan, going online to find inspiration for things to build. He’s taking it to engineer-level, and I’m loving it. Here are some of the LEGO models that he and I built together after skimming through Google Images for ideas:   This was a couple of weeks ago, and since then […]

Review: LEGO Duplo Around the World Arctic edition

Every day when I come home from work there is a new LEGO sculpture waiting for me to ooh and aah over. Ryan and Oliver usually build cube-like structures (that remind me distinctly of the Vogons’ ships in the film version of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), and they hide dinosaurs and Hot Wheel cars inside.  They also left one of these sculptures in front of the fridge last night, like a booby trap for the resident midnight snacker. That’s me. Thanks for blowing my cover, guys. Here they are playing with their new LEGO Duplo set: the Arctic edition of […]

Two Ryans on YouTube doing toy reviews 🙂 I couldn’t think of a better opportunity to start off his toy review videos than with LEGO Duplo!
