Duplo

Lauren's getting more and more personality, and in looking for toys that we can all enjoy, we ended up getting a bunch of Duplo pieces.  Back when I was a kid, Duplo block meant 'dull and boring' blocks.  However, these days, they are just oversize legos that are hard to swallow.   Not just the blocks themselves, but the price of Duplos and Legos are also hard to swallow.  After looking around a bit, I bought some Duplos off of craigslist, and also from sellers on the website Bricklink.com.  We ended up with a tractor, a backhoe, a barn on wheels, a ship, a castle.  A small mountain of high density plastic.  Probably the best feature of the castle is indoor plumbing, which is an unusual feature for plastic castles.  A close second would be the portcullis, however.
