LEGO® DUPLO® bricks were designed for small hands with big ideas. Being twice the length, height and width of a LEGO® System Brick, they are easy for small hands to handle and cannot be swallowed.

These sets are designed for children from 1 1⁄2 to 5 years old and cover a range of interests, from everyday scenarios to your toddlers favorite Disney™ characters. Despite their size, they are still compatible with traditional LEGO System Bricks so as your child grows they can continue to use these bricks for their more advanced building projects.

Most importantly LEGO® DUPLO® bricks are designed to the highest safety standards. While we don’t recommend chewing these, these bricks are non-toxic and have no sharp edges to ensure safe and fun play for you and your little one.

Check out some fantastic ways that your kids can create and learn with LEGO® DUPLO®.
