Most Common DUPLO Parts

Ever wondered which DUPLO parts are the most common? With a 2-year old in my house, I’ve decided to take a closer look at DUPLO this year.

Building on the popularity of my Most Common LEGO Parts analysis (which I update at least once a year), I’ve created the first draft of a similar analysis of the Most Common DUPLO parts.

Ranking assumes that you bought one of every DUPLO set released in the past 5 years and sorted the pieces by part. With so many fewer DUPLO sets every year (and so many fewer parts-per-set) that’s fewer than 8,000 pieces. More surprisingly, there are only 16 unique parts which you would have in quantities of 50x or more.
