What It Is
Preschoolers can create their own sea lion show with the LEGO Duplo Circus Show building set. Using the 25 pieces in this set, kids can train the two sea lions to balance bricks on the tips of their noses. The circus girl Duplo figure can toss the sea lions a fish as a reward. The set also includes a tub, rounded elements, basic Duplo bricks, star-decorated bricks, and transparent bricks. This set can be combined with other LEGO Duplo sets, which are sold separately, for more building possibilities.
Why It’s Fun
A lot of kids like construction play, and the circus is a fun theme for preschoolers. This set offers a lot of opportunities for both open-ended play and repeat play as kids can build and rebuild. As with all Duplo sets, the bricks are large and chunky, making it easy and safe for young children to build and play.
Who It’s For
LEGO Duplo Circus Show is for ages 2–5.

Our Special Needs contributor Emily Vanek shares her thoughts on how this product might be a good choice for a Special Needs child.
Smaller hands can manipulate these larger bricks easier and work on fine motor skills, color recognition and stacking. You can count, work on less and more and other early math skills as well.
