Give a three-year-old a box of LEGO® DUPLO® bricks and he will start to build houses and towers right away. It's almost like an instinct. In fact, stacking a tower and tipping it over is one of the favorite activities for children all over the world.
Children build and make things with their hands, because it's a natural part of their development. When you're a child, creative play is a way of building your skills and growing your mind. The more you stimulate a child's imagination, the better they will develop their creative skills. And the better they will do later on in life.
Classifying, ordering, comparing and making patterns is an important part of understanding the world we live in - and this is exactly what children do when they play with LEGO DUPLO.
