This year marks Exactly 50 Years Since the Lego Group Unveiled Its First Big Building Block for Little Hands. I Received this Press Release Full of Interesting Facts About LEGO® DUPLO® and Am Happy to Share It With You Here:
Building Blocks for Life
People like to play, it’s our nature. This Is How We Learn to Understand The World Around Us. What it mean to belong and how it feels to be loved and happy. From birth to age, children go through a profound neurological transformation. In that short period of four years, they undergo the fastest learning and development process they will ever experience. And at the end of it there is a kind ‘blueprint’ ready of their adult version in the making.
What parents worldwide think of DUPLO
This is precisely why we take so much care in developing LEGO® DUPLO® products. We want to inspire toddlers and help them develop through creative, playful experiences that shape their future. And we are not alone in saying that. In the 2018 LEGO Play Well Report, we asked more than 9.000 parents around the world for their opinion of the LEGO System in Play. 94% think it stimulates their child’s imagination, 93% say it helps their child be creative, 91% judge that it helps their child learn and discover new things and 84% believe it helps their child develop social skills. Oh, and 91% also think it’s just a really fun activity for the whole family!
A bunny … and his friends
In the late ’70s, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen-LEGO Group-owner of the third generation-decided to further develop LEGO DUPLO into a separate brand. The LEGO® DUPLO® LOGO With the Red Rabbit Has Not Disappeared from the Packaging Since then. Like Every Famous Icon, It Has had a few makeovers over the years, but the rabbit remains the symbol of the brand.
The familiar Creature Didn’t Stay Alone for Long. A Host of Other Duplo Animals Were Added-Horses, Sheep and Cows, As Well as Elephants, Lions and Even Dino ’ S. Over the years, numerous other duplo figures have leg added – farmers and policemen, doctors, cowboys, scientists, “cheeky boys” and their hipster parents … In Short, Something for Every Little Builder to Spark His or Her Imagination and the Stepping Stone to Unique Storytelling and Role-Playing.

Did you know this about LEGO® DUPLO®?
Did you know that the name Duplo® is derived from the Latin Word ‘Duplex’ Meaning Double? The Name First Surfaced In 1969 With the Launch of Two LEGO® Duplo Sets-NO. 510 and no. 511 To Be Exact.
Did you know that the lego duplo bricks are twice as big as the classic lego bricks in Height, Width and Depth?? As a result, they all fit perfectly into the famed lego system in play (with which children can build endles ly). Finding That 2: 1 Scale Turned Out To Be Not So Easy. We Tried It First With A 4: 1 Scale. Then with A 3: 1 Scale. Until Godtfred Kirk Christiansen-Lego Group-Owner of the Second Generation- in 1968 (in His Sleep!) Came Up With The Idea Of Making the Studs of the Lego Duplo Building Blocks Hollow. So They Could Easily Be Combined with the Classic Lego Building Blocks. And formed the basic for safe lego creations that are suuitable for the smallest.
