Lego and Building Blocks are a favourite activity for young children. From toddlers, they start with Mega Blocks, Duplo and as they grow older move onto the classic Lego. Did you know that these are all compatible with each other? So you don't have to get rid of Building Blocks or Lego pieces as they all fit.

This is because the original patent for Lego Bricks expired in 2010 and now Lego patents individual sets it sells. This enables other companies to create compatible bricks without violating the trademark.

Lego Compatible Building Blocks include but not limited to:

  • Mega Blocks
  • Duplo
  • Tyco
  • Mini-Micro Blocks
  • Tandem Bricks
  • LEGO Clones
  • Play Platoon
  • Brickyard Building Blocks
  • Star Diamond
  • Enlighten

Lego and building blocks develop children's hand-eye coordination, improves fine motor skills, spatial awareness and teach children early math and engineering skills through hands-on learning.
