From as early as one month old, children benefit from educational toys and play. You will be amazed at how much they are able to pick during these play from such early days. The results from the introduction to the toys and play can be seen from a few weeks to months or years after the interactions.
DUPLO LEGOS has been one of the important toys that introduce to my little one since she was a little over one year old. The first Duplo Lego I tried on her was the Lego Duplo My First Number Train. I always wanted numbers to be part of her daily play so getting the Lego Duplo First Number Train was my first choice. It was an absolute hit, she was glued playing with it. Ever since that we continue to get a few ranges of Lego Duplo that Lego has to offer. It indeed has been one of the most popular toys played in my household.
LEGO DUPLO vs LEGO. What is the difference? The Duplo blocks are thicker, wider and chunkier than LEGO blocks to specifical design for preschoolers to prevent choking hazards for the younger children. Both have a similar function of snapping pieces together.

This electric remote control train building set includes 59 LEGO DUPLO pieces, an easy to build set. The “smart” steam train takes 4AAA batteries to operate. It is the most interactive Lego Duplo set we have in the house. I call it smart because the train has a smart sensor on the bottom that responds to different color-coded blocks that are laid on the tracks. It performs a specific action as they pass over the code blocks. Your little one would have hours of non-stop fun-filled activity driving the Lego Duplo Steam Train. It would the best learning toy built to be their first train.
Add more tracks with the LEGO DUPLO Train Bridge and Tracks 10872 Building Blocks set and LEGO DUPLO Train Tracks 10882 Building Blocks set. Though you don’t need these extra tracks but it will sure add to more fun for your little one.
Another option for an electric set for your little one. Like the Lego Duplo Steam Train, it needs 4AAA batteries to operate. It uses a “Push and Go” motor hence makes so easy for your little one to play with. Gently push forward or backward sends the train on its way and a firm hold or lift off the track makes the train stop whenever they like. This is the most popular toy for toddlers and building blocks for STEM learning through pretend. The Cargo Train is nothing short of amazing for your little ones to learn and have fun all at the same time. It is compatible with all Duplo train sets that comes with a train track.
Role-playing is also an important part of your little one’s milestone in life. Watch as they role-play when riding the Ferris wheel or pretend that they are riding the carousel. These cute Lego Duplo Big Town Fair set are great learning tool that encourages imaginative play. Not only it will excite the imagination because of many possible combinations built from these pieces.
