LEGO duplo “My First” sets – Perfect Gift idea!

This post was sponsored by LEGO.

Looking for gift ideas for your little one this Christmas? Why not get your toddler their first LEGO Duplo set!

Christmas is around the corner and like most moms, I am running around like crazy trying to get gifts sorted and the house in order before Santa arrives. 😉

My little man is almost 15 months old and boy oh boy he is soooo busy! I’ve never experienced this with my daughter so I am always trying to find exciting activities for him to do at home to keep him occupied.

He LOVES the “My first” LEGO Duplo truck set and plays with it almost every day since he is so fascinated with wheels at the moment. We are slowly growing his collection of LEGO Duplo and I thought it would be great to let you know what exactly is available in the collection.

The “My first” LEGO Duplo sets is for the age group 1 – 5 years old and can be used to teach your little one about colors, numbers, shapes, animals and alphabets.

You can watch Kitana’s YouTube channel to see her unboxing videos on LEGO.

My first Lego Duplo sets currently available:

    My kids always loved Duplo blocks. It let them build like their older cousins but without the frustration of being too difficult.

    It is absolutely the perfect gift, our toddlers have a toy box full of them and are getting more this Christmas. As an added bonus, Duplos don’t hurt nearly as much when you step on them :p
