Hi Nicole --

We have a duplo table in our adult department computer room.  Keeps 
the little guys busy while grownups check their email.  A boon to all 
of us, and it's popular with the kiddos too.

We have duplos because we have the table for little unsupervised kids 
while their parents are glued to the screen and we were worried about 
choking too.  No choking at all and it's been over 5 years.  It would 
be really, really hard to choke on a duplo....they're just too big.

We do have Family Lego Day once a month in the youth services 
department with regular size legos, but in that situation bigger kids 
(and often parents) are building away in a supervised situation.
