With the advent of some new additions to the line of LEGO sets for little ones comes some pretty creative playtime ideas for kids (boys and girls) at around 4 years of age. Not strictly adhered to simpler sets, these delightful toys allow very young kiddos to move into a bit more of a creative realm.

LEGO sets are ideal for young minds, as they reinforce motor skills, thinking creatively, and following directions.

Chug-a-Choo! The train setup from DUPLO features realistic train sounds, quarry wagons, a buildable brick-stone quarry, and lots-a gemstones. There are also extra flowers to make a pretty outside scene, plus a tunnel and bridge, train conductor, and two workers.
The Family House is a look inside the home of a DUPLO mom, dad, and daughter. Two stories and pretty in pink accents, the setup includes interior décor, like mirrors, lamps, and kitchen utensils. Exterior décor includes a swimming pool, a dog house (with a pup), and a picnic area.
Lovin’ the carry-anywhere LEGO suitcase. This setup is an on-the-go testament to fire safety, with a fire station, helicopter, motorbike, and two firefighters. Other accessories include a map, town barriers, light-up fire, and a water hose. Great safety conversation starter.
Another on-the-go suitcase, but this one is the Supermarket edition. The market is buildable with a bread and flower display case, ice cream bar, and produce and fruit stands. Other accessories include lots-a desserts, and a shopper, worker, and cat.
The Box of Fun inspires creativity and imagination. The blocks are numbered for counting, sequence, and number recognition practice. Kiddos can create 6 different setups, including a roll-over tractor and house. Or, they can use the blocks to build anything that comes to mind. Includes 2 figures, turtle, and bunny.
Inclusive of two race cars, a start and finish line, and lots-a arrangeable tracks, the Race Car Rally is a racing setup that pits one DUPLO racer against another. I love that the instructions are kid-friendly, explaining how to build the set in simple words with plenty of colorful pictures.
Perhaps my favorite LEGO DUPLO set of all time. Around the World takes kiddos on an (imaginary) airplane ride, worldwide, to explore diverse cultures and animal habitats. There are 5 DUPLO figures, one for each region, and 17 DUPLO animals, like penguins, pandas, whales, tigers, black bears, zebras, and lions.
The Fire Station is a LEGO DUPLO favorite from the DUPLO Town collection.
It is a great setup for encouraging kids to learn about safety, especially in the event of a fire. Includes a fire truck, fire car, moveable ladder, water hose, and two firefighters. Great for basic building skills.
I am diggin’ the pretty-in-pink LEGO brick-shaped tote-anywhere storage box. Pony Farm comes with a girl and her horse, plus a bridle, saddle, and some tasty carrots. The main buildable components are a stable and small obstacle course where horse and rider can practice competitive jumps. Love the picnic scene!
