This review is from: LEGO Brick Themes DUPLO My First Farm 6141 (Toy)
This is a duplo farm scene and, let's face it, how can you go wrong with lego blocks? As the kids build, you can talk to them about colors, structure dynamics (why do we have to have supporting pieces for the roof?), and, in this case, functional learning (What does a farmer do?)

As the grandkids of a farmer, our kids can relate to this scene quite well, so they know what happens on the farm and how the tractor works.

DURABILITY: Like all duplo pieces, it's hard plastic. Even the farmer's pitchfork is made well. This is going to last a long time -- probably through the great-grandkids.

EDUCATION: As mentioned above, this has lots of applications from identifying colors and animals, to talking about how to build things and what happens on a farm. You can talk about animals and even crops as the set comes with a set of flowers.

FUN: That's entirely up to the user. Our kids love this because they relate to grandma and grandpa's farm. As I've learned through the years, if more than one person is playing with the toy, the imaginations run wild.

CREATIVITY: As with all lego sets, there are alternative building designs on the back of the box. We built the farm once and the kids have used the bricks and blocks to build other items as well.

AGES: We got this for our 3-year-old on his birthday. He continues to play with it. Our almost 7-year-old likes showing him how to build with it.

OVERALL: Amazon's price was competitive with the department stores and we saved on tax. Shipping was good and arrived in plenty of time.
