Most kids are also fans of the funny clowns that make a circus show even more fun.

LEGO - fun for everyone

LEGO is the toy that everyone knows and has played with as a child.

It is now the largest and best-known brand of toys that every child likes to play with.

Not only are children happy for a while assembling LEGO packages, LEGO is also intended to develop children's motor skills.

In addition, LEGO encourages role play with its building kits and mini figures, which is an essential part of the development of every child.

LEGO DUPLO - for the little ones

LEGO offers many different building kits with different themes and for various ages.

They also have a series for the little ones among us and that is the LEGO DUPLO series.

This series originated in 1969 and has been developed for children from the age of about 1,5 to about 5 years old.

DUPLO building blocks are specially designed for little hands and are about twice the length, height, and width of a regular LEGO brick.

They are therefore easier to use by small children, and due to the larger size, children will not easily put the building blocks in their mouths.

This makes LEGO DUPLO toys 100% safe and reliable, so you can let your kids play with these toys.

Even though the LEGO DUPLO bricks are different in size, they are still compatible with traditional LEGO bricks.

LEGO DUPLO helps kids reach those fun childhood developmental milestones like learning colors, shapes and numbers.

LEGO Architecture - for architecture afficionados

Are you looking for a theme within LEGO that is intended for older children and (young) adults?

Then take a look at the striking LEGO Architecture theme. With LEGO Architecture you are able to lose yourself completely in building a true work of art.

For example, build the magical city of New York or classic Paris.

The series has been specially developed for travelers, people who love architecture and history.

It is great to see how LEGO has been an important concept within the toy industry for decades, and how it has continued to expand and develop into very innovative toys.
