4.0 out of 5 stars Too few blocks included in the "large" brick box, October 27, 2010

This review is from: LEGO Duplo Building Set-71 pieces (5506) (Toy)
I love this product, but was somewhat disappointed in the number of blocks that came in the large plastic box; not even enough to build a single decent-sized structure. I've since ordered a large bag of additional blocks LEGO DUPLO Brick Set to add to the box.

I'm a little confused. Is your complaint that the 71 piece set only included 71 pieces?

I felt the same way. The bucket is barely half full and the 71 doesn't go very far partly because so many of them are the small 2X2 pieces. I ordered LEGO Duplo Basic Bricks (80 Pcs.) and was able to add those to the bucket and still fit the lid on. With 151 pieces, it's almost decent. 2X4 pieces are still few and far between. I also added LEGO DUPLO Large Building Plates Set so my toddler would have something to build on.

I challenge anyone to make an a priori guess as to what they will be able to build with 71 lego pieces. Yes, the set included 71 pieces, as advertised. No, these are apparently not enough bricks to build anything even moderately complicated. My review is a warning to potential buyers that you will probably need more bricks than what comes with the box. Fortunately, with 71 bricks it's relatively empty, so easy to fit addtional bags of legos.

How complicated can "structures" assembled by an 18-month-old be? This toy is for very young children. If Daddy can't play with it, maybe he should look for a regular Lego set?

Kudos to you if your 18-month-old can put these things together without assistance from daddy. My 2-year-old still has trouble. Otherwise, it sounds like you have no idea what you're talking about.

This product is listed for 18 mo to 5 years. Duplo constitutes the blocks for children under 4 or 5 as most Lego structures aren't recommended for children under those ages. My 2-year-old daughter can easily create Mega block structures (with my help) that use more than 140 pieces. She received a 200 piece set for Christmas as she likes to make houses and chairs that she can use. Because Mega blocks are very large, we'd like to add to her skill set by adding Duplo as an alternative.

I appreciate this review because it gives me pause, and it lets me know that the box can hold more pieces. It has prompted us to look at the LEGO DUPLO Bricks & More Deluxe Brick Box 5507 because the box is even larger, it has 102 pieces, and it contains both a boy and girl figure.
