Just got six - thinking of cornering the market and buy every unit available at the 10-13 Walmart within 90 minutes drive of me in Ontario

120 per pallet x 10 Walmarts

1200 sell on amazon eBay plus - local classifieds


Resell for - $47.98

$20x$1200 = $33,576 + cb on cc

Who thinks this could work where I gain at the minimum $25k

Manager at a Mississauga Walmart claimed he had 2 or 3 skids of them on a truck, but the sale price won't go into the system until Thursday.

the deal is getting worse and worse..
the year before last year, it was 1600 pcs.
last year it was 1500 pcs.
this year, it is only 900 pcs.
what about next year? 400 pcs?

i won't bother driving to Walmart to buy for such small lego creative box.

at what age generally do kids stop playing with duplo and want the lego instead?
My kids are 4.5 and still play with Duplo more than Lego, so probably around age 5? Duplo is so fantastic as it's sort of a standalone toy (a truck is in two pieces) but you can build and add-on to make contraptions.

I think it's still a good deal, in the past it was 1500 pieces for $40 (approx. 2.7c/pc) , now it's 900 pieces for $25 (approx. 2.8c/pc)

my daughter stops play duplo when she was 4 when her hands became dexterous enough to handle small lego pieces.. for lego duplo, if you only buy the creative box ( like I did in year 2015), the box doesn't have wheels or small figures. so quite boring.
Usually kids are crazy about wheels, and they love small figures, so they can pretend and play. So you have to get some other duplo set to compliment creative box.

I agree with this. Duplo bricks are hard to build much with. Duplo is awesome for the vehicles, attachments, animals and people. At least, for my kids.

Do the math. Still a great deal.

Edit - someone already did it for you. Just buy 2 boxes.

The general rule for Lego pricing is - 10 cents per piece, anything that's 7-8 cents is considered a "sale" and anything 4-7 cents is "cheap".

This set works out to be 2.7 cents per piece which is very good price point to add additional elements to your collection. Albeit the included builds are pretty basic, it's probably more fun to try and make your own creations.

From what I can tell the sets sold during these Walmart Black Friday events are exclusive, similar to how Toys R Us has an exclusive 900~ pcs Classic set also. The "official" Classic sets are those smaller brick like yellow boxes.

Is there any blog where they share instructions for MOC made with pieces in this set?

There are several great Lego websites. Rebrickable will let you create a list of what you have and will show you MOCs of what you can build with your current sets. After you create a free account you can even choose if you are willing to use different tones of the same piece or completely ignore color.

My son started getting more interested in regular Lego when he turned 5. He is 5 and a half now and plays with both. He got very excited when he discovered you can mix Duplo and Lego.
