LEGO DUPLO My First Farm Review

I had a very excited toddler on my hands last week when a package arrived from LEGO DUPLO and he discovered that the My First Farm playset was contained inside. Ben's eyes lit up when he saw that it not only contained a pig, a sheep, a cow and a chicken but a tractor and a farmer complete with his pitch fork too. Needless to say we have been building many versions of barns and out houses along with trees and flowers on our farm, we have even built a spaceship - yep, Ben was definitely thinking outside the box that day.

The My First Farm set contains four LEGO DUPLO animals and a farmer DUPLO figure along with a tractor, pitch fork, fencing, lots of blocks, a barn door, window and flowers. Ben loves the farmer and tractor and lately it has been his toy of choice to bring when we head out for a walk. This is a great playset for boys and girls alike.

As a parent, I really love these LEGO DUPLO playsets as it is a joy to watch my son's imagination being sparked as he comes up with endless combinations of things to build and create. As with all LEGO DUPLO playsets, children not only have heaps of fun playing with them, but they also develop their fine motor skills, learn to recognise and name different shapes and colours and experiment with role playing which leads to gaining an understanding of various life skills such as different occupations whether it be a farmers and his associated daily tasks through the My First Farm or a Fireman through the Fire Station playset for example.

The My First Farm playset is definitely a hit with Ben and I can highly recommend it for the endless possibilities and combinations it has to offer. It is available to purchase online for £19.99 and is suitable for children from eighteen months to five years.
