LEGO Juniors sets use normal LEGO System bricks. In other words, they are exactly the same size as the "normal" LEGO bricks. However, the Junior sets are specifically designed for younger children. They often have large single-use pieces (for example, for walls or frames), and are generally very easy to construct. They also limit the use of small or ...
There really isn't a "on" for the Duplo studs. All Duplo studs are hollow studs. In the interior of the stud, depending on set and the year of the piece, the stud will read: DUPLO or LEGO
A legitimate duplo train part will have the word Duplo imprinted inside each round stud, like you see in the image here, sorry for the fuzzy pic. -Brian from brickablocks.
LDD is a closed world where people can't add its own parts. If you want to create Duplo building instructions you should use LDraw that has many Duplo parts in its library, and allows you to create the missing ones if needed.
For the pulling mechanism there have been several Duplo winches (though I have no idea whether there is a current one, I'm afraid). However, for the track I immediately thought of using those (very sturdy) ribbons that they use around mail order boxes. If you have two parallell and they are pulled tight the wheels might stay on and the look might still be ...
Lego Juniors is fine for 3-year-olds who know not to put toys in their mouths. My son, when he was three, was playing with regular System Lego (of which Juniors is a subset) and it was okay. If it's important to you that your son have things like vehicles, or minifigs, and that he build the whole set himself, then Juniors is the way to go. Otherwise, I see ...
Here's a great site for simple Duplo building ideas: http://legoideas.si Very inspirational!
When my kids played with Duplo, they always liked building things as tall as possible, or making patterns of colours (e.g. alternating red/blue bricks in a line), or lots of repeated structures (e.g. putting 4 2x2 squares on top of one 2x2 square to make a mushroom shape). I would usually try to suggest ways to make things stronger, then let them run with ...
And here is my first project: Color towers: Building towers is probably the first directed building effort that toddlers undertake. In this project I gave our son (20m) many bricks and built 4x4 monochromatic socles for towers. I told him that we are building a 'green', 'red', and so on tower. At first he only got that we are building towers, but I ...
Short answer is no. Maybe they will add it in the future, though.
Before 2002 LEGO used "Duplo" inside studs. In 2002 they tried to drop the Duplo brand and possibly for this reason all new Duplo moulds have "LEGO" in the studs. Rare pieces like the 2x10 brick still use an older mould, so still have "Duplo" in the stud. Also from 2012 some sets at least in Europe have 2x4 bricks with "Duplo" in the studs. It's possible ...
