Fun Add-On Set
I bought this set for my toddler just for the Mater and Lightning Mcqueen. The other pieces that come with the set are pretty basic. There's not a whole lot to this set and it is not very playable/buildable unless you already have some Lego Duplo blocks. This is a nice specialized add-on set. I wouldn't recommend it as a basic starter set as it doesn't have enough pieces.

Our 2 year old loves all things Cars/McQueen/Mater. He loves this set. It is especially great because Mater's tow hooks works on this toy! Unlike other Mater toys you can actually tow McQueen and other Duplo cars.

Fun set for any "Cars" fan to play with.
Our grandson is big into Cars right now (he is 18 months old and it is one of the two videos he will watch - the other is Thomas the Train) and we have had him playing with Duplo since he was a year old. He can just now put the blocks together, so getting a set that has the characters he loves in it made a lot of sense. His two favorites are Mater and Lightning McQueen, so the set is perfect. We also purchased the separate green floor board from Duplo that lets you build on it and that really helps with little ones. We are hoping that Duplo will bring out additional new sets as they have for the "Planes" series.
We put these together and then he plays Cars with them, complete with "vroom" sounds as his cars pick up speed. He also loves the box, and we hold it and say the names of the characters and look at it to see how blocks can be put together. As we have a number of other sets, we have mixed them all together. If he wants his toy to look like the box (about half the time), we have to look for each piece. That helps refine visual skills. The blocks themselves are great for tuning fine motor skills in addition to being so much fun.
I always had Legos for my kids and found out about Duplo when they were young, too. At that time, you could only get building blocks, but I wisely held onto all of my old Duplo and Lego blocks and now we are using them for the next generation. There aren't that many toys available that can hold up that well and be as much fun to play year after year. Lego/Duplo are a great investment - both in your children and as a durable and lasting toy.

Cars & Lego Duplo - What's Not to Love?
Our toddler loves EVERYTHING Duplo. When he saw this had CARS in a Duplo set, he absolutely went bonkers If your child is anything like ours, he'll ignore the smaller pieces and just play with the cars.....our child plays with them almost everyday.
- Well built, good amount of product for the price (compared to what you expect I guess)
- Easy assembly, not too many small pieces to lose
- CARS Themed vehicles, the Lego's are awesome to keep the little one busy for hours
- The car bodies only fit on the vehicles, your child will not be able to "explore" alternate configurations with other Duplo items.

My kid loves the cars.
My son really loves this Duplo set. I am going to be honest -- he couldn't care less about the blocks themselves. Those are lost in our bin of Duplo blocks. But the Lightening McQueen and Mater cars are always out. He loves them. Like, a lot. They were worth every penny.

Great intro set!
My godson is a huge McQueen fan, but hadn't really gotten into Legos yet. So happy to give him this as a Christmas present and introduce him to the wonderful world of building bricks! He was very happy with it and slept with both cars the first night. Would have loved a couple extra Duplos to build a track or something to drive the cars around..

Fun cars as an add on set
Fun set mainly useful for the cars. It would be nice to have a few more versatile pieces for the price!

Grandson loves it!
My 2 yr old grandson saw Cars on dvd and fell in love with Mater-- he loves this toy, plays with it over and over. Mater can tow Lightning McQueen with his tow hook, which he was not able to do with the die-cast metal version. Duplo is the larger form of Legos, good for chubby little hands.
