Adventures with Lego Cars2 and Duplo Rescue Helicopter giveaway

It's exciting times for CARS2 lovers with the release of Disney & Pixar's Cars2 launched in cinemas today. Going to see Cars 2 is at the top of our to do list .

My almost 5yrs old twins have also been eyeballing [eying just doesn't look right] off the new release Lego Cars 2 range. I am so surprised they actually put the Cars2 sets back on the shelf. I keep telling them wait for your birthday.

Some of the construction sets are beyond their age & ability at the moment -just look what is available !. They will love recreating the movie scenes with all their favourite characters.

    Lighting McQueen, who travels across Japan, Italy and Great Britain to take part in the Grand Prix adventures, and Mater, who gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage!
Spy Jet Escape (RRP: $89.99)

Mack’s Team Truck (RRP: $69.99)

World Grand Prix Racing Rivalry (RRP: $24.99)

Escape at Sea (RRP: $34.99)

Radiator Springs Lightning McQueen (RRP: $12.99)  

There are so many different sets to chose from. Specials are sure to snapped up in the upcoming toy sales which coincidentally starts the day of their birthday 1st July 12.01am.{Late night for me}.
I am thinking the Lego Cars 2 ~ Duplo will be more suitable for out and about (less pieces to lose) and a more challenging Lego set for them to share in 5-12 age range. 

Duplo is still THE much favoured toy in our house, played with most days here and even at preschool I see groups of children playing with it.  These are just some of the new Duplo range.

Through building, stacking, role playing and social play, children can explore, test and push their limits and abilities.
Dr's Clinic
I love the look of the new DR's clinic (as a nurse), it's looks so much fun and would work as a great toy to introduce children to medical experiences.The nurse's car is cute too.

Who wants in -
I'm giving away this amazing Rescue Helicopter !
The GOOD news - I have the 3 sets of the LEGO DUPLO Emergency Helicopter to giveaway.
The emergency helicopter is off on an exciting mission to save a woman in need. Once
