LEGO and Megabloks are compatible so they can be easily linked together. However, in the LEGO community, the use of Megabloks and other non-LEGO brands is looked down upon; and is not actually allowed on LEGO supported shows.
Legos are generally compatible with Mega Construx and Mega Bloks. However, the Mega brand tends to produce lower quality (or less consistent) bricks. When using Mega Construx with Legos, you sometimes find parts that don’t fit properly due to small differences in size, shape, or quality.
The main difference between both toys is the company that makes them. Lego is manufactured by The Lego Group, a private company in Denmark, while Mega Blocks is manufactured by Mega Brands, a public company based in Canada. Legos and the Lego Group are also older compared to Mega Blocks and Mega Brands.
Yes, maxi-sized Mega Bloks are compatible with LEGO Duplo and LEGO system parts, but only if the Duplo part is 2×2 studs or larger, or the LEGO part is 4×4 or is bigger. Also, you can only connect LEGO system parts and Duplo parts to the bottoms of maxi-size Mega-Bloks.
Bricks compatible with Lego include:
Mini micro bricks. Tandem stones. LEGO clones. Play train.
DUPLO® and LEGO® bricks are compatible, so you can use them together.
Yes, Mega Bloks Junior bricks are compatible with Duplo bricks. Both fit together, both above and below each other, and both fit side-by-side when building a brick-row creation.

Under the MEGA brand Mega Bloks inspires preschool builders aged one to four years and Mega Construx offers older fans immersive sets with authentic characters and varied brick shapes in endless colors.
Bricks. Standard Lego bricks are significantly smaller than standard Megabloks bricks. However, Megablocks Micro Bricks are compatible with Lego. Lego bricks are also considered to be more durable and of higher quality.
In case you’re wondering, the only DUPLO® parts that don’t have hollow pins are base plates. Also, LEGO® plates will not fit DUPLO® pieces and LEGO® pieces with an odd number of studs on one side. For example, a 2×2 or 2×4 brick will fit, but a 1×2 or 2×3 brick will not.
DUPLO is designed for children aged 18 months to 4 years, while regular LEGO is suitable for ages 4+. Size. DUPLO is designed for little hands twice the size of LEGO. DUPLO’s chunkier and larger blocks help preschoolers learn and build better.
Mattel (owner of Mega Bloks) recently revived the Construx brand name (which was a different type of construction toy owned by Fisher Price in the 1980s), and now all brick-based sets are under Mega Construx<' /b> branding instead of Mega Bloks.
