The plate works with Duplo Legos and small Legos. Very happy. My 5 yr old and 2 yr old can use the same plates.

Lego baseplates are wonderful for giving stability to the creations of the Lego or Duplo builder. Duplo baseplates do not work with Legos, however, so this is very versatile for either size blocks. It is 10" by 10" in size, a fact I wish had been mentioned in the description as I thought I was ordering a larger one--one that two children could use at the same time. It is somewhat flexible, so will work better on a hard surface than on a padded carpet. Baseplates are essential for the Lego builder, and this is a good size for a smaller project or one builder. I recommend the 15 x 15 inch size for larger projects.

This past Christmas we got a lot of Lego for our kids. The Lego brand gives the impression of being all kits with specific instructions - and while those are fun, you also need some basics.

We go to the library a lot and a few weeks before Christmas the librarian had made this awesome marble run using one of these plates. I thought we needed to do this at home. We had a good time changing the run, making a few new marble roads, giving the marble a few exit points...

I'm sharing a picture because this is a fun use of the plate even for younger kids. This is just one of the ways you can use Lego bricks in an imaginative way.

Also as you can see, regular Lego bricks will fit this plate well. Yes, the plate is flexible but it is not 'bent' in particular once you place a structure on it.

I was totally surprised at the flimsy-ness of the plate. It's nice and big, but pretty flimsy. It still works. You just need to have something under it to keep the bricks from popping off it, so I give it an average score. Adequate, but not great.

This is a great add-on item for lego enthusiasts although I got it for $3.74 in 2013 and I see it is now $6.99, eeek. Kids love having these to use as a base for their lego creations and you can attach them to tables or leave them loose - just make sure you have at least one per child. You can order these in 4 and 6 packs and that's what I'd recommend now based on the increased price of this item.

I have a tough time giving most Lego items five stars but that's mainly based on "bang for the buck". All Lego brand items tend to be over priced in my opinion. That being said they are still great fun. Building plates are not essential for all builders but they can be very helpful especially if you want to create larger Lego scenes. This green plate is obviously colored to be a lawn or nature type base and that will work for many projects. These also come in blue LEGO Blue Building Plate (10" x 10"). Its a shame they don't come in other colors especially tan, grey, brown or other natural colors. There is a larger 15' x 15' grey plate available but it's about three times the price of the 10" x 10" and therefore not as good a valueLEGO Bricks & More Building Plate 628.

The plate itself is rather thin but its sturdy enough for its intended use. You can definitely use multiple plates together as long as you have a flat surface. You could glue a bunch of these together on a table top or other flat surface if you wanted to make a larger, firmer surface. I glued four of these onto the top of a child's wooden table which is now a great Lego table. I may experiment with Velcro next time so I can change individual plates. I'll update this review if I decide to try it!

Any child 3 to 10 (..... or 42) cannot do without an increasing number of these basic plates, if they like Lego. We love them in either blue, green or gray and keep buying more. Larger than in the old times (yet too thin and weak), they also fit with the street plates, in size and thickness to build cities ..... or whatever.
CONS: 1> I wish more colours were available!. 2> I find them a bit expensive, even at discounted Amazon prices, for what they are. > In my times they used to be thick as standard bricks, solid and really more stable (as another reviewer pointed out) while these flimsy ones make it more difficult to move around constructions and need a solid base below to actually build on them. Yet they are larger than the ones I had 30/40 years ago, so that's better! 3> Flimsy, to the point of fragile and permanently deformed if bent (can happen easily with small kids)

I RELY on real user reviews so tonight, I will sit down and try to review as many products as I can.
While it is small, it is WONDERFUL especially for younger boys who need to 'stabilize' their creation. It's also a great way to preserve what they have built. I had one for my 10 year old son, and when my younger boys graduated from Duplo's to classic Lego's, there was a "I want this" battle; so I bought 2 more. Now they build independently, together. I keep looking for decent priced Lego tables but these are good to use in lieu of buying an actual Lego table. Just set up the dining room table with one at each seat and Lego land begins. My only wish is that they made bigger plates. Do they?

These were a Christmas gift for my children who are lego obsessed. They are a staple in any lego house hold. Best used to save your child's amazing structures, I am not sure where we would be if my kids couldn't save their buildings on these. I in the future plan on buying a few more and making a lego table with these attached to it as a permanent fixture with as much as they use our legos now. The plates are true to size, an excellent product and great quality. I would not hesitate to recommend this item to anyone looking for lego plates.

As with some of the other reviewers, I got this DOUBLE PRICED baseplate ~ which the seller describes as the LARGE baseplate, only to find it is the regular LEGO 10x10 baseplate, which I had ordered 2 of from another seller in the same order at half the price! Why in the world would I read a review of a LEGO baseplate? IT'S A LEGO BASEPLATE FOR GOD'S SAKE!!! Described as LARGE it should be LARGE. This seller is not the most honest in their description of this product and should not be allowed by Amazon to sell it as such. I was VERY disappointed.
