Kontu STEM Blocks are a modular manipulative system that allow children across a wide range of ages and skill levels to explore STEM concepts in a playful way. STEM is an approach to development and learning that combines the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

The clever design of Kontu STEM Blocks provide children with a learning kit that can be used for exploring, discovering and comprehending mathematical theories, magnetism, building, spatial awareness and many other scientific concepts. The shape of the frames and integrated magnetic blocks invite children to use their imagination and creativity whilst expanding their knowledge and playing with this open-ended toy and learning tool.

Playful STEM Exploration:
Explore magnetism, early mathematics, weight & counterbalance, joints & hinges, construction, and other STEM concepts.

Kontu STEM Blocks grow with your child:
As your child grows, you can introduce new learnings appropriate for their development. And of course, you can always add more blocks!

Constructive Play:
The blocks are great for building simple structures. Kontu STEM Blocks plays well with others including both magnetic and non-magnetic blocks. Your child will also develop spatial reasoning while building both orthogonal and organic structures.

Made from wood - not plastic:
Made in Thailand from sustainably-harvested rubber tree wood and rare earth magnets and is meant to last for generations. 

Sustainably Sourced:
Rubber trees grown on plantations are harvested once they stop producing latex sap and new trees are planted to replace them.

- 1-tray
- 2-tray

Patrick Greenwood, the founder of Kontu began his inspiring journey shortly after the birth of his daughter when he wasn’t able to find any engaging math tools for younger children. His curiosity then led him to research about the brain development in children and the introduction of mathematical concepts to children before they start primary school and from these concepts, he invented Kontu.

Recommended Age 12+ months

All Kontu products are made in Thailand from sustainably harvested rubber tree wood and rare earth magnets. Kontu STEM blocks have been safety tested according to AS/NZS 8124 (AUS/NZ).

I got very, very lucky to be able to get this last Kontu25 just before it sold out. VERY lucky. :) This set is gorgeous- not only can it be used for counting but love how it piques on bub’s natural curiosity about magnetism as well as cause and effect. Definitely recommend!

So much fun, and educational!!

I was so excited for our kontu STEM blocks to arrive, and the did not disappoint! My two children engaged in playing with them for so long, and it was so exciting to them how the power of magnets work! I must say they are one of my favourite purchases for my kids!

We love our Kontu STEM Blocks!

I saw the demonstration video of Kentu STEM Blocks and thought what a wonderful resource for learning about magnets and balance. They did not disappoint. My children absolutely love them! They can be used for so many activities. My children love to play with them. They build all sorts of creations. We have also used them for many educational activities. Counting, magnetism etc. They are very safe and extremely well made. Very pleased we purchased the large set.

Amazing, educational, brilliant

I am so impressed with the quality of the Kontu STEM blocks. The endless ways to play with them has been keeping my boys busy. The magnets are strong and easy for my 2yr old to do. My 4yr old and I love to make them spin and dance by using the opposite magnets. We love adding our grimms friends onto the merry go round.
