Duplo SNOT

edited April 2013 in Building and Techniques
I was playing with my 18 month old and 3 year old this afternoon and while doing so I took a hard look at their Duplo collection and thought without having the technic like duplo block how can I reverse these pieces.

Well with a lot of digging through their bin I found a method using two of a rather common duplo brick.

I'll leave it to wonder for a few days as the fun is in the adventure.

    When it came to duplo with my kids, SNOT building literally meant that. Sticking things together with snot.

    ^And that is why I no longer buy loose bricks at car boot sales.

    We have an antique dining table with a perfect side profile image of a 1x8 technic brick etched out of the varnish.

    All Lego was banished to the attic after that....

    ^ And why I always wash ones bought at bootsales!

    Not sure where the attachment went.

    Hmmm, I haven't cracked this one. We've tried fences, spanners and other various combinations to no avail. Closest we got was butchering a 1/3 height semi-circle plate in sideways. More than a passing chance that we don't have the magic combination of pieces, so interested in the answer.

    I'm curious about this, as well. The only thing I can think of is modifying a turntable brick by reversing the rotating part.

    A flower perhaps?

    Fresh idea was to place two of these side by side, one the right way up, the other upside down and connect them together using an axle. Several problems with this idea 1) I don't think an axle long enough exists 2) it would be rather wobbly 3) Axles come with wheels attached 4) The solution is probably waaaay more obvious :-)

    Two of these would work if you put them inside each other perpendicular. They wouldn't actually click but it would work.
