Selling Duplo

Hi all,

My son (aged 4) has been moved onto proper Lego now. I was wondering where to offload my big collection of Duplo. Doesn't seem that there's much demand on ebay. Or here. Thanks.

    There's definetly a market! Probably worth listing what youve got and what you'd want for it in the marketplace!!

    Unless you really need the money I would suggest the loft. My nephew is playing with Duplo going back to 1978 that used to be mine and my brother/sisters back in the day. Glad my parents held on to it now.

    Duplo is also handy for building up the insides of mountains or other large lego structures that need support. 2xX bricks stack nicely on top of duplo studs.

    Well I never knew that! (And yes I did just go and test it to make sure!!)

    You will regret selling that Duplo when you have grandchildren. Some toys I will never get rid of. Duplo, Thomas (wooden) and Schleich dinosaurs & animals top that list.

    There's definitely a market in Duplo. I sell a lot of it on my BrickLink store (Gifts With Guts), and there are a handful of other sellers (in UK and Austria) who specialise. You could offer it to one of us,

    You got any Thomas duplo? But I'd also echo the loft, when you're rebuyingit for the grand kid s, you'll remember this thread

    I'd also say if you have the space in the loft to store it, that's my plan in the future with our huge still growing collection. With 3 children and pregnant with number 4 it's a long way off yet. My 7 year old still plays with it, it's nice they can all play together with it.

    I know there is a market for duplo... my daughter is 6 weeks and here collection is growing by the day and she needs more ( well dad claims so) and the friends sets seem to be mounting..

    If you list it let me know as I am after farm stuff/animals etc

    A market for Duplo, you say? Guess I'll stop passing it up at yard sales! :}

    Glad to see there are some other AFODs on here! :)

    There are some pieces I'd like to get when I buy a big bag of misc. parts at Goodwill and someone else apparently got the other bag so I have a fire ladder and the firetruck base but nothing to connect the two, etc.

    Seems like Europe has way more availability on Bricklink. Can you get parts from Lego I wonder?

    I'd say the figures and animals will have a decent sell on value. Plus there is some branded sets, I'd love to get my hands on the Thomas the Tank Engine stuff they did, that goes for good money

    I'd imagine what kills it on ebay is the potentially high postage. Unless you've got tonnes and and need the cash, stick it in the loft, and use the odd piece to bulk out MOCs.
