Popular children’s presenter, Jen Pringle, hosts a day of storytelling and building at John Lewis Oxford Street, London to launch the new LEGO®Jen Pringle DUPLO® Read & Build range from the pre-school brand.

Jen, who currently presents Channel 5’s popular pre-school show, Milkshake!, read from the new LEGO DUPLO books to a captivated crowd of children at regular intervals throughout the day after which she spent time playing with the children as they built their very own creations using the colourful bricks and accompanying books.   

Guests were able to build with the LEGO DUPLO at their leisure throughout the day as well as having the chance to participate in a colouring competition to win their very own Read & Build set, signed by Jen herself.

Read & Build is a brand new concept from LEGO DUPLO featuring three unique sets each with a beautifully illustrated book and a set of bricks enabling pre-school boys and girls to bring the ‘story to life’ whilst learning to listen and build. The three sets include Grow Caterpillar Grow!, a story about a caterpillar growing up; Busy Farm which is about Farmer Ted and his animals; and Lets Go! Vroom!, about two friends going on an adventure.

Offering so many ways to play, LEGO DUPLO is perfect for stimulating creativity and encouraging learning through role play amongst pre-schoolers aged 1 ½ – 4 years.  Designed for small hands and big imaginations the colourful bricks are the ideal introduction to creative play, enabling toddlers to build a new adventure every day.
