Can Duplo and Lego fit together?

  • 230 views

Only the best is good enough is the tagline that Lego carries. Lego's staying power and popularity among kids is in its quality and the freedom for kids to build and shape their world with these awesome blocks.

Lego was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen, and it's been a part of almost every child's playthings with its iconic Lego bricks.

The Lego group introduced its additional line in Duplo in 1969. They started researching in the 1950s for larger bricks for the younger builders and eventually launched it in 1969. Duplo bricks are geared for kids from 18 months to 5 years old. It first came out with only four colors, namely red, yellow, blue, and white.

The following year they added more with two sets with blue and red wheel plates. Lego Duplo is a product range of the construction toy Lego by The Lego Group for the younger kids.

Yes, Duplo and Lego do fit together since these bricks are compatible and can be used together seamlessly. However, there are some slight limitations since Duplo bricks would fit best on larger Lego bricks.

Duplo bricks might come off easily from the smaller Lego parts. Another thing, the Duplo figures aren't compatible with the Lego bricks, and likewise, the Lego mini-figures wouldn't fit on Duplo bricks as well.

The Lego bricks would fit on the Duplo if it has hollow studs on its top. The only Duplos that don't have hollow studs are its baseplates.

Also, the Lego plates wouldn't fit on any Duplo parts, and also, no Lego components with an odd number of studs along one side would.

A good example is a 2x2 or 2x4 brick that would easily fit while a 1x2 or 2x3 brick just won't.

How is Lego different from Duplo?

Their difference lies in their sizes as Duplo bricks have twice the size in its length, height, and width as compared to the traditional Lego bricks. It's designed for the smaller children to handle them better, and they wouldn't pose any choking hazards. Nevertheless, despite their difference in size, Duplo is still compatible with traditional Lego bricks.

Take a look at the video below on how you could use Lego and Duplo together.

After Thoughts

The Lego company did a great job in making sure that their traditional Lego would work even with the larger Duplo pieces. Think about that ingenuity!

Kids could build more using both Lego and Duplo together and even add to the limitless structures possible beyond their imagination.
