200 Wooden Planks

Most of the time an idea for a new product comes to mind when you can’t find a suitable object that ticks all the boxes. The Dutchman Tom van der Bruggen encountered this exact problem while trying to design and create a model of a castle that he wanted to build in the South of France. In order to visualise the finished construction of the castle of his dreams, Tom van der Bruggen tried to construct it using regular wooden blocks. However, the size and shape of the wooden blocks didn’t allow him to create certain features such as lintels, roofs and floors. Unsatisfied with the possibilities of the wooden blocks, Tom set out to design and create his own. He invented wooden blocks in the shape of planks which he named Kapla - an abbreviation of “Kabouter Plankjes” which means “gnome planks” in Dutch. 

All Kapla planks are identical in size with the dimension in ratio of 1:3:5. This unique and innovative design allows children and adults to build a wide variety of structures without the help of additional or supportive accessories. Balance and gravity alone hold the wooden planks in place.

Our wooden Kapla planks introduce children as well as adults to the world of imagination, creativity and concentration. These open-ended wooden planks provide hours of fun, entertainment and endless building possibilities. From simple to very complex structures, the wooden planks allow each person to build at his own skill level. Kapla is a natural construction game that encourages children to develop, practise and refine their fine motor skills, logical thinking and perseverance as well as building techniques and spatial awareness.

Such a hit

My 6 year old added Kapla blocks to his Christmas list this year. He plays with them at school and wanted some of his own to continue creating and building with. Well to say these have been a hit is an understatement and the look on his face when he opened them was priceless. They have been played with every single day since Christmas and he has learned so many different ways to build with them in a short time. They have also been a hit with friends as well entertaining them for hours. I must admit I wasn’t sure about them at first not having seen them before but so glad I purchased them 🥰

High quality, full of possibilities

We love our kapla blocks. They are made to last and can be used in so many ways. From simple fences to architectural designs. My four year old was quick to pick up on some basic techniques and likes to get inspired by examples from the books.

Love them

These are high quality blocks which make them easy to build with. My kids are playing with them nearly every day. My 5 year old loves the art book of ideas that we purchased alongside it too :)

Fun for all the family

So versatile and such a great addition to our block collection. A great activity for all the family. Our 3 year old daughter loves building high towers so these are great and I’m looking forward to more intricate builds as she grows up. She’s planning on using them to make a zoo today.

The best toy for young and old

This is such a great toy. It sparks creativity and is therapeutic for both my kids as well as me. 200 blocks is great but I might need to buy some more to nourish my building urges!
