If you have a preschool-aged child in the house, then you know there are a million different toys out there that help with motor skills, enlighten kids on numbers and the alphabet – but how many of them actually bring a smile to your son or daughter’s face?
The LEGO SUPLO Creative Sorter is the kind of toy that parents want to own because it delivers on all fronts – fun AND learning. LEGOs themselves are great for contributing to the creative and imaginative play process.
This specific set is full of colorful LEGO DUPLO bricks, which means they’re large enough for small hands to work with (and safe for younger kids). There are 23 bricks in this set.
When you separate the 23 pieces into their color scheme – blue, red, or yellow – your child will be able to build a specific animal from those pieces, and then use the matching plate to put the shapes back into the storage box.
Children can build a blue elephant, a red parrot, or a yellow giraffe. The plates and color coding help kids begin to understand the matching process, and from there they can put the pieces together to create animals.
There are many LEGO DUPLO sets, but the Creative Sorter combines the typical LEGO building process with a fun sorting element to it. DUPLO is a line within the LEGO brand that caters to one to five year olds.
The pieces are simple to put together, easy to handle, and kids love them! They got their start back in 1969 and there are many DUPLO sets to choose from – and you can combine them as you go.
Some other ones that are really fun for kids are the LEGO DUPLO Read and Build sets. There’s a book that goes along with the pieces so that your child can see the illustrations and follow along with a story as they build their new toy!
There are also girly Princess LEGO DUPLO toys – one of the most popular ones being Cinderella’s Castle. It may not be as educational as the Creative Sorter is, but it enhances your child’s imaginative playtime.
Boys may appreciate the LEGO DUPLO Emergency line, which has a myriad of toys like police officers with their vehicles, fire trucks, and more. Of course at this age, most boys and girls will want to play with all of the sets, regardless of which gender they typically attract.
