I have saved up quite a few pieces of "plastic" which I am unsure about - can you tell me which ones are LEGO - I've included plates and a figure for scale.

  • Thank you for your help editing my post. I have kept them a long time but I now wonder if they are indeed Lego.

  • Several of the tools are from playmobil. The first two and the musket definitely are but its hard for me to tell with the rest.

  • The last item in the bottom image: could it be a Znap connector?

  • Almost always, you can find the word LEGO on true LEGO bricks and pieces. If you can't find it, chances are it ain't LEGO. Commented Apr 18, 2017 at 15:17

  • The tools obviously have different handle widths. If they do not properly fit into a minifigure’s hand, they are almost certainly not Lego. If they do, they are compatible for most practical purposes, even if they are clones.

  • The grey, star-like thing is a K’nex connector.

  • The white post looks like a Support 2×2×7 Lamp Post.

  • The left and right part in the bottom image are nothing I can identify. But they do not look like Lego as their elements do not match the standard Lego scales as seen by the base plate.


The second gray piece in the bottom image (from left to right) is a TENTE piece.

Check this example set (look at the feet of the robot)

Example set from TENTE


Only two LEGO tools are present in the upper image, the Fabuland shovel and the Fabuland pipe wrench - other five are Playmobil (1st, 2nd, 5th and 7th in upper row and the rifle in lower row) - the rest, I really don't know - I can't make out the white stick, if it's a LEGO hose

Bottom image seems to have been answered suffiently.
