LEGO DUPLO 'How Do You Play' Giveaway


I love all LEGO, and LEGO DUPLO is fantastic for younger children to start to explore their own creativity and imagination, making up stories and worlds and gaining all kinds of valuable skills.

Small children don't have the strength necessary in their fingers to push together, and pull apart, the little LEGO bricks, and they don't have the precision to create and play with a small model without frustration. LEGO DUPLO is a fantastic tool for building co-ordination and fine motor skills, which in turn gives younger children confidence and pride in their creations.


I'm really proud to have been asked to be on the jury panel for the LEGO DUPLO How Do You Play competition. I'll be helping to judge the final round, which will decide who will win a holiday to Billund in Denmark to the original LEGOLAND.

The competition is incredibly easy to enter, you need to film your children playing with their DUPLO. We want to see imagination and creativity in action. Submit your video of no more than 30 seconds to the app. on the LEGO DUPLO Facebook page.

LEGO DUPLO have also very kindly sent me some sets to keep, or give away to my readers.

My youngest child is now 4, he has been practising with little LEGO for a couple of years and is now pretty good with it. Although my little boys would love to keep the LEGO DUPLO, I don't think it would get the play it deserved and we're very lucky, we have lots of LEGO here, so I've chosen to give away my sets.

LEGO DUPLO 10566 Creative Picnic set

The first set I'm giving away is the Creative Picnic Set 10566. Suitable for children from 18 months, it is a lovely set with 52 chunky pieces which are too big to swallow, and including everything you need to make a delicious meal.

LEGO DUPLO 10566 Creative Picnic set contents

Using familiar items, in really simple shapes and an everyday setting, means that children have a good idea of what to do without play having to be led by adults, so they can work independently. It promotes thinking for themselves, problem-solving and decision-making.

The Creative Picnic set has a recommended retail price of £19.99 and makes an ideal starter set for a child new to LEGO DUPLO, or a brilliant addition to bricks you already have.
