    Default What age for Lego?

    What age did your kids progress from Duplo to real Lego??

    My son is about to turn three, & I don't know whether to add to his Duplo collection, or start afresh with "big kids Lego"

    My son swapped over around 3.5 years. He is 4 now and does the 8-12 stuff with no problems.
    There is Junior Lego which is proper lego but quite easy for little kids.

    DSS didn't show any interest in Lego until he was 6. We started him with the 'big boy' 5-8 ones. He struggles with them a lot though.

    I would say if your 3 year old likes Lego, and plays with it a lot, get a 5-8 box and see how he goes. If he can do it, start swapping Duplo with "real" lego.

    The junior lego someone else mentioned is awesome! Its official age range starts at 4, but we started switching from duplo at about 3 because DS had an older sister and started wanting real lego.

    Keep in mind that Duplo and lego these days do work together - so don't automatically ditch the duple when you start getting lego.
