Building confidence brick by brick

LEGO® DUPLO® playsets provide endless fun – but there’s even more going on behind the scenes. Find out how they can help build your child’s problem-solving skills and confidence.

LEGO® DUPLO® is tailor-made for kids to build an infinite number of creations that they’ll feel proud of. This world of possibilities is a big start for building your child’s confidence.

There is no right or wrong when playing with LEGO® DUPLO®. Kids can build a tall tower, panda with a wobbling giraffe’s neck, or just play with individual pieces.

Encourage kids in their play

LEGO® DUPLO® is great fun to play with your child – but it’s also safe for them to play on their own, and playing independently can help with their decision-making skills.

Getting an idea of what they want to build, picking the right pieces, going through the building process step by step – it’s all perfect for building your child’s confidence.

They’ll take pride in completing their creation themselves. This confidence may even help them deal better with responsibilities, challenges, peer pressure and emotions in other everyday situations.

Motivation matters

Positive reinforcement not only motivates them to keep up the good work, but it boosts their self-esteem.

It’s important to reward your little builders’ effort, no matter how successful they are. Show them you are proud of them for working so hard towards their building goals in such an independent way!

It takes some trial and errors for little hands to master building, but they’ll learn to not give up.

Positive reinforcement not only motivates them to keep up the good work, but it also boosts their self-esteem. You could praise your child for being compassionate and caring while playing with LEGO® DUPLO® farm animals for example, or let them know you’re really proud of their achievement when they choose the right pieces to finish a house.

Best of all, your child will be enjoying themselves so much that they won’t even realise how much they’re learning and developing!
