video game
My son and daughter are at that age when they aren't "little kids" anymore but not teens just yet. In their tween aged years, the twins have started to be less interested in toys and more into sports and video games. Yet they both still love LEGO spending hours engaged in construction and imaginative play with the bins of plastic building bricks and mini-figures that we've accumulated over the years.

Their passion for these toys all started with the LEGO DUPLO toy sets we got them as toddlers. Designed specifically for preschoolers 2 to 5 years old, DUPLO bricks are twice the size, height and weight of regular LEGO bricks so that they are easier to handle and safer to play with by young children. Despite the size difference, DUPLO toys are interlinkable with traditional LEGO bricks so that kids can intermingle the two as they grow older. As a parent I like that it takes some skill and patience to put LEGO toy kits together as well as promotes creativity and imagination when playing with them. So I appreciate seeing my kids still enjoying LEGO toys and recognize that their current interest in LEGO was spurred from those first DUPLO sets.

Because of the positive experience that my family has had with DUPLO, I wanted to share the news about the release of a new app for Apple and Android devices from game developer Touch Press' StoryToys brand that is sure to excite parents looking for interesting ways to mutually entertain and educate their children at the same time. LEGO DUPLO WORLD utilizes the highly-regarded Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework to help children achieve key learning goals while having fun being immersed within an interactive digital world based upon LEGO DUPLO toys. Gameplay is specifically designed to help children with the development of spatial awareness, working memory, and early math while they explore open world DUPLO-filled environments.

The first themed world of the game is NUMBER TRAIN which has preschoolers playing around with trains while also engaging in activities that build number identification and counting skills. This level is FREE to play when downloading LEGO DUPLO WORLD from the App Store or Google Play. Additional worlds including WORLD ANIMALS, RESCUE ADVENTURE, and WINTER HOLIDAY can be opened by parents with in-app purchases. Keep reading because I'm hosting a giveaway of some LEGO DUPLO WORLD prize packs that includes a code to unlock some of this additional content.


Managing screen time I am sure is as important to you as it has been for my family. LEGO DUPLO has also released physical toy sets based upon the scenarios in the app to promote real life play that is complimented by the virtual experiences within this game. So parents can limit screen time of the app and kids can continue their imaginative play experiences with physical DUPLO toys. For example there is a real life NUMBER TRAIN toy set based upon the world in the digital game.


To help promote the release of the LEGO DUPLO WORLD app, is hosting a giveaway courtesy of The LEGO Group. This dad blogger is giving away 3 prize packs that include a promo code to unlock additional in-game content within the LEGO DUPLO WORLD digital game as well as a physical LEGO DUPLO Number Train Toy Set. This prize pack has a combined value of approximately $30.
