Nice set, but DUPLO 2304 large green plate is better
on December 12, 2012
This is a lovely colorful set, but I think if you are looking for a base plate, the DUPLO 2304 large building plate is a better choice for two reasons. One, it gives the child a lot of area to build freely in all directions. My two year old seems to avoid these smaller plates because she is unable to expand her work horizontally on them. I believe older builders with more mature imagination might enjoy these smaller plates more, by using them for making roofs etc. Second, these plates have raised edges, and I worry that they will surely break if my daughter accidentally steps on them. The green plate on the other hand is absolutely flat and doesn't seem prone to breaking.
