Publish date:

A popular kids’ TV presenter will host a storytelling event this Saturday at John Lewis Oxford Street to launch Duplo Read & Build.

Jen Pringle, who hosts Channel 5’s pre-school show Milkshake, will be reading from the new Lego Duplo books at 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm on Saturday, August 25th.

She will also spend time playing with kids as they build their own creations using the new Duplo Read & Build line. The range combines storybooks with building blocks, and encourages parents and kids to build a story-related structure as they read.

Guests will have a chance to take part in a colouring competition and win their own Read & Build set signed by Pringle herself.

The Read & Build products are aimed at pre-schoolers aged between one and a half and four years old.
