Ahem. We don’t want to alarm anybody or anything, but have you looked at your calendar lately? Can it possibly be mid-November already? Yes, it is. And do you know what that means? That’s right: the holiday gift-buying season is upon us. Yikes! The mall parkades are probably already all full! But whatever your cultural stripes, having a few good gift ideas up your sleeve always comes in handy, no matter what season it is.

Lego-duplo-review.jpgSeveral of the Go2Girlz mentioned that they’d love to see a mesh bag or similar re-usable storage container included with the sets (some LEGO®  and LEGO® DUPLO® sets are also available in re-sealable plastic storage bins). Our testers said this would have helped with cleanup and also to prevent losing any pieces.

But what did the testers themselves have to say about it? Here are some of their comments in their own words:

Good size for my 3 year old’s hands — Heather, mom of 2

The size of the blocks is great and we found that there were just the right number of pieces in the box. Neither too many to handle nor too less to enjoy. — Munaza, mom of 3

We loved the ability to build the cars from the Cars movie and the ability to engage in educational dialogue about building things and counting etc. — Erin, mom of 2

Duplo is compatible with original Lego, which makes Duplo a fantastic investment for your children’s play. — Lesley, mom of 1

My kids still have it on the coffee table in living room have played with them every day since they came, great toy, fun learning, way to go!! — Heather, mom of 2

Great product, high quality. Every kid should have at least one Lego set. — Sabrina, mom of 1

Our whole family loved it – thanks so much!! — Tanya, mom of 1
