Contents of the box.
The contents from inside the box. As you can see, the Giraffe and Lion cub come in their own bag and the elephant doesn’t come in any bag.
The Human Duplo minifigure.
YES! It has backprint!
The set does not include instructions, that way the child building it can use their imagination to build anything they like. But you need much more Duplo to be able to build specific models.
The completed model.
Here is the model built like the front of the box.
A closer look at the animals.
Not all of the Duplo in this model are able to connect with the regular Lego system. Only the 2×4’s, 2×2, and the 1×4 grass are Lego compatible.
If Lego never releases a System scale Lion or Giraffe then this set will be your best bet on getting those two animals.
Design: 2/5 -Not much of a design. Just a bunch of 2×2’s and 2×4’s stacked on top of each other.
Build: 3/5 – Supremely simple. Then again it’s a 2 year old model.
Minifigs: 4/5 – The animals are adorable. No complaints here.
Playability: 4/5 – Duplo helps children’s imagination expand so the animals and bricks are used to play and build. It can be fun for Toddlers.
Parts: 3/5 – The only interesting parts in the set is the 1×4 grass, the Giraffe, the lion cub, and the Trans-Blue 2×4 brick.
Price: 3/5 – Duplo is usually more expensive than regular Lego. Its better to get this set on sale.
Overall: 4/5 –Its a good set for toddlers and to those wanting to build a zoo or safari. It also makes a good starter set for infants that are just getting into Lego.
