What Lego Duplo Sets Are Available From Disney's Planes Movie?
We sat down recently and watched Disney's Planes movie. Yes, we were a bit late getting to it despite the fact that it was on my husbands watch list. What we discovered when we finally watched it is a lovely animated film that little boys in particular and even little girls will enjoy for years to come. It was nice, therefore, to discover that the Lego company has released several sets in the Duplo line for children aged two to five years of age that are Planes movie themed.
There are three Disney Planes Duplo sets plus one Disney Planes Fire and Rescue Duplo set:
- Dusty and Chug,
- Ripslinger's Air Race,
- Skipper's Flight School and
- Fire and Rescue Team.
With names like those, you know that Lego has managed to include a number of the main characters that your children love in the movie. If you have young children who love planes you won't want to wait because they will be grown up before you know it!
Lego Duplo's Dusty and Chug Set
Dusty and Chug
This is Duplo Set Number 10509.
This set, called Dusty and Chug by Lego, includes two of the most important characters from the movie. Dusty is the little crop duster who dreams of being a racer and Chug is the fuel truck, friend and staunch supporter of Dusty.
This is the smallest of the three Duplo Planes sets, containing 16 pieces that include an attractive plane, truck and fuel pump.
LEGO's Disney Planes Dusty and Chug is recommended for individuals aged 2 to 5.
Lego Duplo's Ripslinger's Air Race Set
Ripslinger's Air Race
This is Duplo set number 10510.
The Ripslinger’s Air Race set includes two more important characters, Ripslinger and El Chupacabra. Ripslinger is the fastest racer around. However, he doesn’t play fair and isn’t liked by many. El Chupacabra, on the other hand, is a friendly Mexican plane with a whole lot of personality.
This is the medium-sized set, with 41 pieces that include the two planes, a fuel can, the trophy and assorted building blocks.
LEGO's Disney Ripslinger's Air Race set is recommended for individuals aged 2 to 5.
Lego Duplo's Skipper's Flight School Set
Skipper's Flight School
THIS IS LEGO DUPLO SET NUMBER 10511.
Skipper’s Flight School set includes three planes – Skipper, Dusty and Sparky. You probably already know who Dusty is. For those who do not know, Skipper is a Navy Corsair who was a respected flier and instructor with the Jolly Wrenches squadron until a combat mission gone wrong left him unable to return to duty. Sparky works for Skipper's Flight School and is assistant to Skipper Riley.
Ripslinger's Air Race is the largest set in the Disney Planes series. It has 53 pieces that include the two planes, forklift and Skipper’s hangar.
LEGO's Disney Ripslinger's Air Race set is also recommended for individuals aged 2 to 5.

Are you a fan of Duplo? Of Disney's Planes movie?
Treasures By Brenda (author) from Canada on February 08, 2015:
Yes & my husband would like to play with them, too.
Treasures By Brenda (author) from Canada on January 20, 2015:
You are right, I think it is important to allow and encourage a child to use his or her imagination and create whatever he or she wants to create and not be bound by the 'theme' of a Lego kit.
Tolovaj Publishing House from Ljubljana on January 02, 2015:
I find very interesting to see how industry evolved in last few decades. Toys are not toys anymore, they are characters. Bricks are not bricks, they are elements of very particular story. It seems just about everything this days is supported with a story, because we all like stories. This is great, because kids connect with their toys in much more passionate way, but demands a bit of caution too, because some kids can feel limited with already preset scenes.
Thank you for this lovely selection. Lego is not number one for nothing!

The Legos planes look cute. I'm sure kids would love playing with these.

Your grandson will be lucky to have a Lego-playing grandparent though it won't take long for him to be old enough to play with Lego's Duplo product.
RTalloni on September 03, 2014:
I try to stay up on the latest Legos for my oldest grandson and am looking forward to when our littlest one is old enough to play with them safely.

For sure, Susan you could enjoy it & Mike, that's a hoot. I'm so glad your son is able to help you enjoy your Duplo set!
Susan Deppner from Arkansas USA on August 22, 2014:
My boys missed out on the Planes movie, but I guess there's no reason I have to wait for grandchildren to be able to enjoy it, right? The characters are adorable and these Lego sets are awesome!
Mike Hey from UK on August 21, 2014:
My son "bought" me the flight school set for my birthday last year and loves playing with the planes. He hasn't seen the film all the way through yet as his attention span isn't quite long enough
