Young children love getting in on the action of their big siblings, and LEGO is a great multi-age toy. LEGO DUPLO is especially well-suited to toddlers and preschoolers because they present less of a choking hazard and are easier for small hands to manipulate as they are developing fine motor skills. Another activity that most preschoolers enjoy is learning and practicing the alphabet, so one thing you can do to engage your little LEGO Lovin' Learner is to let them explore the alphabet with LEGO bricks!
