What better way to get your 3 year old started into LEGO than with a Big Fair! Safe for toddlers to play with under supervision, it will allow them to both build each of the fairground rides (Ferris wheel, Carousel, Train Ride, Wavy slides) and services (Concessions, Washroom).
This set is excellent for helping toddlers develop spatial awareness through play. The services part of the fair will also help them learn manners and proper hygienic practices early on, so when they go to a real fairground, they can enjoy it just that much more!
Spiderman, the famed web slinger, is hard at work perfecting his Web Bike. This Workshop setup includes a build-able pedestal, ramp, and storage cabinet, plus a few accessories, like a wrench, oil can, and engine components. Includes Spiderman, of course.
The Play House, a three-story dream home, comes with a mom, dad, and daughter, plus their adorable pet cat. There are interactive, moving elements that make this house extra-fun for toddlers. Such as flip-change wallpaper, snap-together furniture, and a balconette.
The Box of Fun is an all-in-one setup for creative building straight from the imagination. There are two DUPLO figures, plus a few adorable animals, like a turtle and rabbit. Kiddos can make houses, towers, rockets, and whatever they can dream up, really. The blocks are numbered to encourage counting.
For those young aspiring astronauts – the DUPLO My First Rocket enters in next of the top LEGOs for 3 year olds for 2017 and into 2017.
My First Rocket is a too-cute DUPLO setup that sends kiddos to the moon. In their imaginations, at least. The blocks are numbered and the cockpit features a two-sided picture of boy and girl astronauts. Includes planetary and starry blocks.
So fun and creative! The DUPLO Deluxe Train Set is an extremely popular pick for the 2017 Christmas holidays as a best pick for three year old kiddos.
From play houses, to rockets, and finally trains. The DUPLO Train Set is a big build-able track system with 3 figures, a conductor and two workers. This train is headed to the mountains in search of gemstones. Accessories include a brick-stone quarry, tunnel and bridge, and lots of rearranging tracks.
Also managing a spot among the best 3-year-old kids’ LEGO sets for this year is the DUPLO Fire Station.
The Fire Station is a big part of any town, so you can expect the DUPLO setup to have all the accessories required to keep the DUPLO Town safe. Includes a fire truck and fire car, plus two firefighters and a buildable fire station. This encourages parent-to-child talks about safety.
The LEGO DUPLO Town World Animals is the perfect set to go with any of the other sets so far shown, or as its own standalone set. With a wide variety of animals that can be found everywhere from Antarctica to America and back, the World Animals set is guaranteed to both entertain, as well as provide valuable learning opportunities for your toddler to learn about the wide variety of life we have in the world.
Educational and oh so fun. The First Cars and Trucks setup begins a love of automobiles and all things that go, go, go. The blocks are numbered to encourage counting, sequence, and number recognition. Kiddos create a tow truck, regular drive-around car, and semi-truck from 36 colorful, chunky, easy-grasp blocks.
Sofia the First is an awesome cartoon from Disney Junior. So, of course, you can expect the Royal Castle setup to be just as amazing and fun. The castle is simple to build with two stories, lots-a towers, a grand staircase, and a beautiful ballroom. Includes Sofia and Princess Amber.
