Price is a general constraint for us. We're willing to spend $25-$30 for a set of Duplo blocks. They're tremendously durable, and you can even run them through the dishwasher (in one of those cages used for baby bottle accessories). Within that price range, we try to maximize the number of bricks we get. If wanting only bricks (no special pieces), then you should be able to get 80 or more bricks starting at $20 on sale. If you want those parts (wheels and a character)--and in our experience, they are some of the most used parts when the kids play--then you are looking in that $25-$30 range with at least 65 other blocks.
All of our kids, especially the boys, loved having the wheels. They would make cars and trucks, and eventually airplanes and rolling robots. Sure, they could make many of these things without the wheels, but they seemed to play longer when they were making wheeled things.
Both the boys and girls like the little characters, but the girls would often take the Duplo person away to play with other dolls or for other activities. The boys would almost always make the boy a driver, or some person who was running from (or fighting) the giant robot, tank, or whatever they built with the other blocks.
Many people might not think of Duplo blocks as educational, but they are a great tool for teaching little ones about colors, numbers, and matching. It also helps fine-motor coordination as they try to assemble the bricks (especially at the youngest ages). We have a special needs child who was grown very fond of the bricks, and really enjoys assembling and disaassembling small stacks of them (this year's purchase was targeted for him).
**A SPECIAL NOTE ON THEME SETS**
Unless you have a specific desire to get your kids the specially themed Duplo sets (e.g., Bob the Builder), I recommend skipping those and getting just a basic set like this one for these reasons:
1) Cost. Themed sets cost more for less. You end up paying for the name/theme, and little else.
2) You simply get more blocks with the non-themed sets, and more blocks means more fun play.
3) Themeed sets usually have more special (unique) bricks. They can be used with any set, but those specialized bricks often aren't used as much (based on our experiences) in general play.
4) Most kids don't keep the sets together as displayed on the box. They like to tear things apart and build new things. Knowing that they will do that anyway, it seems to decrease the value of the special theme sets. By the time they are old enough to care about keeping sets togehter (or restoring the set to its original layout after playing with the bricks), the kids are about ready for the first regular Lego set.
**ONE EXCEPTION ON THEME SETS (ANIMALS)**
The only theme sets my wife and I will occasionally purchase are the ones with the animal figures and extra people. These are a great gift for a child who already has a supply of Duplo blocks, as they add to the fun.
It's incredibly flexible
It stimulates the imagination, and builds hand-eye coordination
The toy is tough, and safe
It works in conjunction with "regular" legos when the child is older
No worries about getting the child a duplicate gift. If someone else got the kid the exact same set, no problem! Twice as many legos is twice as good!
Comes with a neat case to keep the duplos organized.
Stepping on Duplos in your bare feet will cause 5 d20 piercing and bludgeoning damage. Dungeons and Dragons references aside, it's very painful, because the toy is so durable. This only seems to bother adults - kids have no problems with this because they have little feet and don't weigh very much.
Her love to practice stacking the legos and keep trying is awesome. It's wonderful to see her enjoy the legos and get better eye hand coordination every step of the way. In the meantime her sister, probably loves them as much as I did. And she loves to take apart what her sister put together and throw them everywhere. C'est la vie.
These legos definitely keep my girls occupied for 30 minutes, and with toddler twins that's a bonus.
If you remember the wonder of lego blocks, and want that for your developing toddler, I say GO FOR IT.
