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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

The train bodies do indeed consist of a stack of 4x4 "blocks" that were fully enclosed when assembled - and as I recall, we could fit a seated Duplo character within most of the cab sections. Toby and the coaches had the most room, but most engines just about had room.

My back wheels do the same thing. There is no metal axle that connects both back wheels like the axle design does for the front wheels, but I'm sure LEGO designed it that way. So, imagine the train's motor being in an "ON" state just a rolling. Now enters a kid, just being a kid. Grabs the thing, and starts a rolling in whichever direction kiddie wants ...

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

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.

Don't have too much experience with DUPLO, so my suggestion is based on my limited knowledge. I'm not aware if there a way to attach pig directly to LEGO bricks, however I thought of a workaround. Here, green DUPLO figure legs represent your pig feet.

FOLLOW UP POSTED AS AN ANSWER So, I managed to disassemble the wheel axle from the gear axle, which show what I was expecting, a broken piece in the freewheel. As my question is on how to disassemble the wheel itself @Rin Rio-Oki answer is the correct one. A picture is worth a thousand words so put picture ... The wheel axle is simply force in the gear ...

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 ...

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