LEGO Duplo Disney Pixar Cars 2 - Luigi's Italian Place (5818)
To be able to understand why LEGO has been successful for so long, just look to the name. LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen who combed the Danish words "Leg Got" which means "play well". He later realized that LEGO in Latin translates to "I put together." The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children worldwide, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. Historians point to the invention of the wheel as a major turning point in world history. The invention of the LEGO wheel had the same monumental effect in the history of LEGO, making it possible to create cars, trucks and eventually the LEGO train building set that is one of the most successful LEGO sets of all time. LEGO currently produces about 20 billion LEGO bricks a year and has sold over 400 billion LEGOs in their history -- enough for every person on the planet to have over 60 LEGOs each!

It is unfortunate that another reviewer had a bad shipping experience but I wish people wouldn't rate a product based on something like that. This is a great, high quality toy for fans of both Cars and Duplo (my son is a big fan of both) so this gift from his Oma was, and, months later, continues to be, a big hit!

The item was great....when it finally arrived. The people at TRU are liars. So if you want an item without a hassel, go to another store or pick it up in person- DO NOT PLACE AN ORDER A MONTH IN ADVANCE.
