We are having so much fun being part of the Lego Duplo UK Blogger Panel for 2012 and we were so excited to be sent some brand new Read & Build sets to play with before they even hit the shelves here in the UK!
With the Read & Build sets, as the name suggests you get a book and some Lego Duplo bricks. The book has a story and also instructions to show you how to make the various characters as you go along. It was lovely to be able to read the story together and find the right bricks to build the different characters. We found the picture instructions really fun and easy to follow.
That said, it is completely versatile as in you could read the book alone, or indeed play with the bricks on their own. And this being Lego Duplo of course the bricks are compatible with all other sets too so the possibilities really are endless. The set does come in a resealable pack though so you can keep it all together at the end of play if you wish.
We absolutely love the Read & Build sets. My girls are huge fans of Lego Duplo anyway but I have to say that I really love this new concept of incorporating the story book too. I take any opportunity to read with my little ones because they love it so much and the whole idea of being able to read and play together is a definite winner for me. I think it goes without saying that this gets a HUGE thumbs up from us!
Lego Duplo Read & Build, ages 8months – 4years, RRP £9.99, available from 1st August 2012. Huge thanks again to the lovely folks over at Lego Duplo for asking us to be part of this years panel!
