We've had some fabulous LEGO DUPLO sets sent out to us this year as part of their LEGO DUPLO Ambassadors 2012 programme, but nothing quite as impressive as this LEGO DUPLO Photo Safari:
The 4 year old couldn't believe his eyes when he saw the size of the box and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with how much use the contents have had since he opened it a week ago.
It arrived on a sick day for the 6 yer old so I let him get to work on it first...
It's aimed at ages 2 - 5 but he thoroughly enjoyed putting it all together.
The 4 year old LOVES this set. He has brought the animals to playschool, to the bath, to bed and for a 'walk' so far.
There are great little touches in the set such as the movable animals - the giraffe's neck goes up and down, the crocodile can open and close his jaws, as can the hippopotamus (or hee-popotumus as my boy says). The vehicles add to the excitement, and the characters complete the set.
Is there anything better than watching your 4 year old in role play as an asthmatic elephant....? Personally I can't think of one:
A huge thumbs up and 5 star rating from me on this one.
The LEGO DUPLO Photo Safari set retails at approx. £49.99. Toys-R-Us stores nationwide are currently running a promotion where you will receive a super cute plush DUPLO bunny when you spend over £25 on LEGO DUPLO.
