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.

Amazing fun

Who would think a few blocks could be so much fun?
...but they are.
Great challenge to do together as a family. We laughed and stacked and played and tried!
Not as easy as it’s seems!!!
Teaches a lot about balance, fine motor skills etc.

Wonderful quality and small enough to pop in the car to take to places for those times when you may need. Really happy.
Of course OWA as always fast shipping, orders always arrive quickly.

I was a bit worried that my son would figure these out too quickly but they are quite challenging even though they look simple. Easy to take travelling too which is great!
