Kapla Building blocks with red hardcover art book/building ideas book,
makes a wonderful gift and is a perfect Kapla blocks set to introduce
kids (and grown-ups) to the wonderful world of Kapla building! At
Blueberry Forest we have over 30 years of combined expertise in European
and U.S. toys, and the Kapla blocks are hands down among our all-time
favorite toys, because children (and grown-ups) actually build with them
over and over again, and never tire of creating ever greater building
The beauty of Kapla blocks is their
simplicity (and their aesthetic beauty): each plank is the identical
size and shape, precision-cut, and perfectly sized
(1 in. x 4.5 in. x .25 in.)
so that they can be
balanced and stacked in incredible ways.
Children and adults enjoy creating creatures, towers, castles,
landscapes, or whatever else comes to the imagination.
Unlike other types of
blocks or building sets, you don't need to go digging around or
searching for a particular size or shape: with Kapla blocks you can
build just about anything you can imagine, all with one identical size
Kapla block. No glue, no snaps, no electronics: just pure imagination.
Kapla blocks are a unique open-ended building toy introducing kids and parents to KAPLA stacking, building, designing, engineering and cool construction.
The Kapla Set of 280 blocks includes an illustrated instruction manual with basic building techniques,
and comes packaged in an attractive
wooden box for easy storage.
We just can't say
enough good things about the Kapla blocks. The inventor of the blocks,
Tom Van Der Brugge is a fascinating person, an art historian and antique
dealer, who originally set out to restore a castle in France. In the
process he created the Kapla blocks as a means to help him visualize his
architectural designs in 3D. Thus the amazingly perfectly proportioned
Kapla blocks were born. The word "Kapla" in Dutch comes from the Dutch
words Kabouter Plankjes, or "Gnome Blocks." Kapla blocks have been
displayed and featured in children's museums around the country, as well
as around the world. A model of the Eiffel Tower was exhibited in the
Cité de l'Architecture in Paris, and Kapla has also has been featured at
the Louvre in Paris. Every child should have the opportunity to build
and discover with Kapla blocks.
In our personal experience with our own children, our decades of
experience in the toy business, as well as in the context of Kapla
museum displays, the Kapla building blocks are among the best value,
best quality, and best designed toys for many, many, many hours of
creative and imaginative play for generations to enjoy.
building blocks are wonderful, natural building blocks made of Marine
Pine wood from France.
