Construction sites are usually not child-friendly places, but construction vehicles are just so universally cool and appealing to kids - even to toddlers. Young kids are awestruck by the sheer size and noises these machines make in real life. As you grow older, you start to grasp just how much power goes into diggers, excavators, trucks, and cranes. So how do build a vehicle that’s powerful enough to lift/dig up/transport/stack all your heavy pretend rubble, bricks, and other construction supplies?
LEGO® DUPLO® lets toddlers build bulldozers, wrecking balls or dump trucks with just a few big bricks. LEGO City for kids ages 4-12 has all the loaders, tippers, cranes and much more built with smaller LEGO System bricks, and for the older mechanics and engineers in training (ages 7-16), LEGO Technic is where you can find the really big construction machines. Some LEGO Technic sets come with built-in remote-controlled Power Functions motors. Others you can upgrade with separate Power Functions sets.
