Build Your World with Matador

Every Matador Construction Set comes with the tools needed to build your world with Matador. The Fitting Hammer is used to help children build structures, operative models, and imaginative worlds. The Innovative Pliers made from organic wooden injection moulding, help to disassemble the structures easily.

The Building Manuals are visually designed to provide full details as well as the first sparks of inspiration. Containing step-by-step instructions, they include detailed information on the difficulty level, number of parts needed, illustrated list of parts, and approximate building time of the projects. The manual will include pictures of how to use both the hammer and the pliers.

Developmentally appropriate and pedagogically devised, the difficulty levels of the models increase in logical steps so that skills are continuously developed. If children have not had any experience with tools, it makes sense for them to have some help during their first tries. After the first sense of achievement children turn into true Matador master builders!

Matador Maker Series uses larger blocks and is designed for children from 3 years, while the Matador Explorer Series is designed for children from 5 years.
