LEGO DUPLO are taking to the sea this summer with some fantastic new Disney themed building sets. There are two new themes available, Jake and the Never Land Pirates and a new Disney Princess range introducing Ariel from The Little Mermaid. We were sent both Ariel’s Undersea Castle and Ariel’s Magical Boat Ride to review here on the blog.
Ariel’s Undersea Castle is priced at RRP £19.99 and comes with 39 pieces including both the Ariel and Flounder characters. There is everything you need to build your castle with turrets, a swing, a slide, seaweed and even a treasure chest. My little girl who is five loves us to play with LEGO DUPLO together and what can I say, I love it too! This set is great because it comes with so many pieces and there are lots of ways of putting the castle together. The pictures shown on the box give you lots of ideas of how you can build it which she liked copying but then she also loved having a go at making her own castle too. I love seeing her imagination at play.
Ariel’s Magical Boat Ride is priced at just RRP £14.99 and comes with 30 pieces including Ariel and Prince Eric. The set comes with a little boat for them to sail along in as well as plenty of bricks to build your scenery. In both of the sets, there is a really good selection of different bricks all in bright colours and as you would expect, they are the perfect size for little hands to develop their fine motor skills.
We are huge fans of LEGO DUPLO and of all the toys that my children have, this is without doubt the one thing that my little ones come back to time and time again. These fantastic new Disney Princess sets will make a great addition to our already big collection but of course, they would also be a great place to start with your LEGO DUPLO journey. The very beauty of LEGO DUPLO is that all the sets are compatible with each other of course meaning that the fun really is never ending.
These sets are both recommended for ages 2-5 years. For more information and stockist details, please pop along to www.DUPLO.LEGO.com
