Learning With LEGOs And A Sweepstakes

As a mother, I am a big fan of toys that teach my children. I also love toys that are durable. And....to be honest, I really prefer toys that don't light up and make tons of noises. 

Well, Baden and I recently got to review the new LEGO DUPLO Read and Build set. If your child likes books or LEGOs, this is a really cool concept. I absolutely love this new line. In fact, we used it for our "mommy school" one morning. (We get a little excited when a package comes in the mail. Can you tell?)

Here's what you receive in the pack.

As you go along, reading the story, the pages instruct you on how to put the pieces together.

The building and assembling goes along with the story line.

In the end, your child has built the LEGOS....

....and he has something to show off for his hard work.

I really liked how building along the way encouraged him to stay engaged with the storyline. He liked having the LEGOS to play with after we were finished reading. LEGO DUPLO Read and Build would make a great gift for any preschool age child.

You can't go wrong with LEGOS. We slid the book and pieces into this LEGO bag I made Rex a few years ago. Now it makes a great bring-along-quiet-toy.

How do you think LEGO DUPLO Read and Build could help your child learn to read?

Tell me in the comment section for the chance to win a $100 LEGO gift card.

By making the story come to life thru their own creations, it makes reading something they want to do so that they find out what they are building and what it means, like why they built it!
