We are big fans of Lego Duplo as no doubt you know by now! Our latest product for review is the Number Train (we also got a water bottle, bag and Lego Duplo Bunny in our surprise package!). It comes with everything you need to make a train using the numbers 1 to 10, plus a train driver and his dog.
I worried that the train would be a bit young for my 7 and 4 year old children, and in all honesty it is because they can both count way past 10. It didn’t stop them from playing with it though. Miss B has used it to help with her number formation when writing and Little S decided to get all the Duplo out and build lots of things to go with the train.
I think I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been disappointed with the instruction booklet, and I was this time too. I’d like a booklet with lots of different ideas instead of them being on the box because we don’t keep toy boxes. All we got was a booklet advertising other Duplo sets. I know the idea is to use your imagination but my children often want to see ideas to help them along.
This set is only £12.99rrp and I think this is a reasonable price for a Duplo set. The bricks are sturdy and last for ages, plus children will want to play with it again and again. My two love tipping the Duplo out and making brilliant creations, so for us, Duplo is always great value for money.
