What It Is
Kids can take a safari ride with the LEGO Duplo Zoo Bus. This 19-piece building set comes with an ostrich, zebra, two lions, and two LEGO Duplo figures: driver and passenger. Accessories include a video camera and flowers. The Zoo Bus features a safari decoration and opening storage compartment as well as real rolling wheels.
Why It’s Fun
The Zoo Bus building set gives kids a way to be part of a safari bus tour and engage in lots of imaginative play. There are no building instructions because the set is more about letting kids build however they want. As with all Duplo sets, the bricks are large and chunky, making it easy for young kids to build and play. This set is a great introduction to building play for young kids.
Who It’s For
The LEGO Duplo Zoo Bus is for ages 2–5.
What To Be Aware Of
Duplo bricks are compatible with classic LEGO bricks, so that even as kids get older, they can continue playing with the Duplo bricks.
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 animal recognition and self expression as well.
