As Lego Duplo Ambassadors (someone had to do it, tough job), we regularly review toys from their range you can find those here.

This month we’ve been reviewing the Build and Read range, brand new to the shops this August.  Book based toys are fantastic because it adds so much more value to them as far as I’m concerned – it takes them from self-play construction toys into wind down and bedtime toys as well.

We started off with the Busy Farm which comes with a book and 15 pieces to make various farm animals from.   I love their simplicity and the iconic styling is gorgeous – as a parent there is value in toys looking great as well as being entertaining if I’m honest!

The range is suitable for children aged 1.5 t0 4 and beyond (RRP £9.99) – Bear played happily with his 8 and 10 year old cousins with the sets.  And at the age of 4 he happily constructed each of the animals by himself following the pictures.  Stacking them in a tower provided a lot of entertainment.

The book actually comes out less than the figures because they can be used with the other sets we have, however the book is by the bed and provide an easy read in the evening too.

As a Lego Duplo Blogger, we were sent the Read and Build sets to review.  I stick to the bloggers with integrity code to post honest open reviews.

  1. Looks good – I may buy this for our nephew for his birthday – thank you!

    • How old is he? We also have the Lego police helicopter (5+) and our four year old was engrossed building it, highly recommend it

  2. Ahh – thank you – he’s almost three so I thought this one this looked quite a good fit for his age. I haven’t managed to find it online yet though – I know it’s new – any idea which websites I could try? Thanks again – great review!
