Kapla

A wonderful wooden construction game for children age 3+. Simply place one identical Kapla plank on top of another and the unique dimensions and properties of these precisely cut French pinewood pieces open up infinite constructions possibilities...

Playing with the planks helps children understand geometry, physics, language, arts and other key curriculum areas (indeed they're used across the world as a teaching tool for this very reason). They can also be played with in groups, stimulating teamwork and cooperation – suggest some themes for the children to work within, or just let them follow their own imagination!
