Toy Story Duplo Blocks Are Fun To Infinity And Beyond

Duplo bricks are made by the Lego company in a size that's just right for smaller hands. They are designed for children ages 1 1/2 to 6 and are about twice the size of regular Lego bricks. These great toys allow children to use their imaginations to role play and build fun environments. They are so easy to snap together and take apart. The latest Toy Story 3 movie has stirred a flurry of new Toy Story Duplo Block sets designed around the movie that kids love so much. Mix them with basic Duplo bricks and really expand the Toy Story creations kids can build. Just like Legos, these bricks will keep children engaged and entertained for hours.

The Magic Behind The Creation Of Lego Duplo Blocks - Larger Bricks For Toddlers Began Early

The first Duplo bricks were introduced in 1969 and were mixed in with regular Lego bricks at first. Duplos came in four colors: red, yellow, blue, and white. Shortly thereafter they began marketing Duplos to children 1 to 2 years old and started selling them separately. Duplo blocks are quite safe, the size makes them hard for preschoolers to swallow, and parents loved them. In 1977, the first Duplo people came on the scene. They were creatures with just a cylinder shaped body, no arms or legs, and a head with one stud at the top. My kids played with those when they were little and I still have a bunch of them. Of course they still coordinate and fit with the Duplo bricks of today. Then in 1983 the first Duplo people with arms and legs appeared and soon there were sets with houses, farms, bridges, and trains with a track. The concept has grown in popularity with toddlers and their parents and now there are sets that include Bob the Builder and Thomas & Friends characters, a zoo, town, princess castle, and pirate lines. Disney Pixar's Toy Story and Cars Duplo blocks are the newest additions and they will capture a child's imagination today just as they did back in the early days.

About the Author ()

I'm a Floridian by birth, a Certified Public Accountant by profession, and a toy lover by choice. I've been playing with toys for 55+ years now. I didn't have many toys of my own as a child but after having 4 kids, 3 step-kids, and 4 grand-kids I've seen and played with a lot of toys. I'm still playing with them every time I get a chance. I've started a doll collection and plan to incorporate a lot of doll information and reviews here, but you will find information on toys of all kinds and for all age groups. That includes adult collectors. I hope you enjoy your visit to Trying Out Toys.
