LEGO bolsters DUPLO range for 2016

LEGO is bolstering its DUPLO line this year, with 16 new sets set to hit shelves in 2016.

The new line, designed for small hands, have been designed to stimulate creativity, encourage role play and conversation with pre-school boys and girls.

The new DUPLO Town collection allows youngsters to create stories inspired by easily recognisable, classic pre-school themes. These include the Horse Trailer which allows pre-schoolers to build a jump and practice horse-jumping in a field.

Elsewhere, another new set for 2016 is Tow Truck. The set includes a buildable tow truck and car, tools and a turntable allowing little mechanics to tow and fix cars.
