Boys and girls alike. Every child should have a tub of Duplos! I can not think of a better toy for a toddler to build creativity and keep a little one entertained for hours! Duplos are durable, easy to clean, and you can always buy new sets to build your collection. There are a few toys that I will NEVER get rid of, and one of those if Duplo. I keep all our Duplos in a big tub, and when friends stop by with their children, I get them out. Once you show a child how they can build towers and buildings with Duplos, the fun begins! I think the zoo Duplos are my favorite. I love the alligators and the elephants, in particular. My kids spent hours building fences out of Duplos for their Duplo animals. And when they are done playing, it's very easy to pick them up and put them away. The only thing about Duplos that I don't care for is that they have gotten very expensive in recent years. But I just look for them on sale!
