LEGO Duplo Cars 2 and an Amazing Competition

Yes we are opn the cusp of the top end of the age range for LEGO Duplo, but due to the fact that it is compatable with LEGO (yes you can connect and interchange the bricks) it is still one of the most played with toys in The Mad House.

We are a Lego House, I was a Lego girl and I still have the rooms for the Lego house in the loft. I am thinking about bringing them down for the boys to play with, but the truth is, they still bold too many precious memories for me to do that yet, I need to hold on to them a little longer.

There favorite type at the moment is Lego Nijago, which is an interactive Lego that you can battle with and boy do they battle. The whole street are hooked on the stuff and the boys rush in from school and grab their spinners, cards and figures and off they go. When they are not battling with them, they are using them in Garrmadon’s dark fortress. They really do seem to have got into the whole Ninjago thing. Yes my boys are younger and they don’t use the cards correctly and they make sure that they come home with the same weapons that they go out with, but they love it.

I am slowly learning about it, the forces of good and evil and the four elements of spinjitzu.
