    I was wondering if any of you know if the mega bloks ( the ones that are the same size as the duplo), do they fit with the lego duplo blocks? Can they both be used together? I got Mackenzie a set of the Mega Bloks and was wondering if I could get the Duplos to go with it.

    They mostly match up. The prongs on the Megablocks are a bit longer (if I recall correctly) so they don't look perfect, but they'll hold together decently.

    They do match up, not 100%. However, I like duplo way better. Mega bloks don't stay together very well. They are so easy to fall apart wen stacked up. My kids for so frustrated when they played with those. Duplo is more expensive but way better. Gl!

    Yup...I agree! Duplo is way better, but I don't care one way or another. The kids have received Duplo and Mega Blocks for their birthday and I know for sure they will get both for Christmas....they are happy with them all and don't know the difference too much.

    Thanks ladies, my girls are getting tons of blocks for Christmas, it is their favorite toy right now. So hopefully no more fighting over the blocks. I will definitely be getting some duplo sets then.

    As the others said, they'll go together but not perfectly! I prefer lego duplo as well :D

    If you haven't already purchased the blocks for Christmas, look on eBay. You can get some fantastic deals on used Duplos. Since they're hard plastic, they really don't show signs of wear and you can wash them in the kitchen sink if you want to make them look shiny and new. I bought over $300 worth of Duplos for $35 a few years ago. My kids didn't have any idea they weren't brand new... and I loved the cost savings!
