For this experiment we're using the wheeled Duplo push and go motor block and red cabin from Set #10874. The wheel width of the motor is the same width as a non motor base. So, for this train to stay on the six stud track, the wheels need to sit either on the inside of the tracks or the outside of the tracks. As the last picture shows, the wheels ...

Here are some disassembly pictures and tips. Tools needed: Either a precision flat-head or Philips screwdriver: There are two flat-head/Phillips hybrid screws that hold the the battery cover down. These two screws do not come completely out the battery cover. T9 Star Key: There are six T9 star screws. Four on the corners of the housing and two hidden ...

I could imagine that this design was chosen to take care of slight angular missalignment of the tracks at the peak of the bridge (the two parts are not exactly in a straight line but slightly bent at the joint). I cannot confirm whether this is possible, because I don't own these parts, but I think for easy assembly and disassembly they have to have a little ...

At last, I have your answer. The figure is from a "Giant Pre-School Loc Bloc" set, likely the "Playground" one shown in the picture. Nearly a month later, while doing unrelated research, I found "Giant Brix Blox", a second possible source of these types of figures; It makes since given that sources claim Loc Blocs & Brix Blox were both imported ...

From a train point of view those wheels will fit happily within the guides of the bridge, and the connections on the tracks should just about fit as well. I'm fairly sure we bought our bridge when we were staying in a holiday cottage that had a load of the old black track, and it connected to the track successfully, but you may need to work with some curves ...

I was able to remove the screws properly with a Torx T9 screwdriver from our Duplo Train Push & Go Motor (28743).

This is an excellent question. Here's my best guess as to why this is. As you've pointed out, LEGO System Minifigures were made with yellow heads from the start for a specific reason. On Lego.com it states: We chose yellow to avoid assigning a specific ethnicity in sets that don't include any specific characters. With this neutral color, fans can assign ...

Color sensor for some amount of time. I was able to make green Lego tiles work, if the area I covered was 2x8 (in LEGO scale, not DUPLO) bumps. I put a standard Lego scale 4x8 brick under the Duplo track piece, and then built up the exposed area to the height of the center of the Duplo track, and then put 2 green Lego tiles (1x8) on top. This worked ...

Physically, these parts are compatible. They simply rest in between the rails. Various elements have made use of the space between the rails for years, such as points: Older trains don't have any way to understand the function elements and respond accordingly, but they won't derail or anything like that.

The official Lego site sells individual Duplo and Lego bricks, but they don't make it easy. For Lego it's not too hard, just Shop By Bricks, then Pick a Brick. For Duplo it's less obvious: hover over the Support tab, then click on Replacement parts, then Buy Bricks (for some reason they then ask how old you are; no Duplo to be sold to under 18's, like beer). ...

If the schematic you are asking is for the LegoDuplo, Train Push & Go Motor with the circuit board that looks like: This schematic is proprietary information that belongs to the Lego group. This element uses a Bluetooth Low Energy radio and has an FCC ID: NPI28743 Perhaps you could create your own schematic and post it here.

It's Part #41489c01 - Duplo Toolo Sloped Brick. In comments you wrote: "I also thought that its #45751c01, but the number on brick is 41489" – k1psead Good question. This is what LEGO.com says about the molded numbers on individual pieces. So, LEGO is saying the molded number is this piece's specific Design Number and that we can plug this number in ...

This article potentially provides some insight to the type of research that product developers, such as Lego, might use to "better" their products. It's title is obviously meant to be humorous. "https://nypost.com/2017/04/13/your-baby-is-a-little-bit-racist-science-says/" If research suggests that babies/children react to things like skin tone, it ...

If you have red floor or carpet, that could be recognized as the Stop Rail Accessory by the engine. Otherwise I would contact Lego customer support.

Most of the time, best place to obtain LEGO bricks in any shape and colour is Bricklink.
