LEGO DUPLO is our teacher-pick for your family's first building set, preschool room, or kindergarten classroom. This 20 piece specialty set is a great add-on to any existing DUPLO collection as it contains pieces such as police officer & police station, fire fighters, bank & bank robber. There are also some rarer black bricks in this collection which colour-coordinate with specialty pieces.
THIS SET WILL GROW & BE UPDATED REGULARLY, AS MATCHING PIECES COME IN. HAVE EXTRA DUPLO AT HOME? DROP OFF AT ANY OF OUR COLLECTION PARTNERS AROUND TORONTO AND PARTICIPATE IN THE REPLAY MOVEMENT!
You may also want to pick up a 6.6 lb box of bulk LEGO DUPLO bricks (sold separately at the bargain rate of $4.00/lb) which contains a variety of plain building bricks in primary colours, shapes, and sizes.
