On your mark … get set … Duplo! 

The LEGO Duplo Race Cars set is full of imaginative play, developmental benefits, and role-play and building fun for kids ages 2 and up. Kids can build a fun racetrack playset using the easy-to-follow instructions and 44 included pieces. The LEGO Duplo pieces are chunky, so they are perfect for younger kids to build with, and the set can be assembled in different ways and combined with other LEGO Duplo toys for more creative possibilities.

The set includes male and female Duplo racing driver figures with helmets; two push-and-go cars; and racetrack accessories, including a trophy, flags, a pretend electric vehicle charging station, cones, and car-care tools. The best part is that the cars are push-and-go, meaning that kids work on their motor skills to make them go and parents don’t have to worry about recharging or replacing any batteries.

Once kids are done building up the race track, they have a playset to keep them busy. They can race around the track, stop in the pit stop, and even hold a winners’ ceremony. Plus, the open-ended playset allows kids to get really creative with their imaginations, and come up with whatever games or storytelling ideas they can dream up.

Since it’s not too tough to build and rebuild, even for little hands, the set can be taken apart for storage and rebuilt whenever kids would like to redo the challenge. The set features a manageable amount of pieces that are easy to store to make sure kids don’t lose track of any — which is a dream for parents.

Of course, all construction toys have amazing developmental benefits for kids, especially at the preschool level. Buy playing with this set, they’ll hone their motor skills and spatial awareness, learn how to follow directions, and engage in creative and imaginative play — many of these benefits also start to build a foundation for STEM learning and spark a love of learning and discovery.

Rev up your engines and zoom into a fun and educational building experience that will ignite kids’ imaginations with the LEGO Duplo Race Cars.
