8 Years

We love eight-year-olds! They’re just the right age for all kinds of fun. They still love the pretend play they’ve been enjoying for years, yet they’re also ready to move ahead into more advanced toys and learning. All of these toys and activities will appeal to their natural sense of fun and wonder.

This is a 1000 piece building set of distinctive Kapla natural marine pine tone wooden planks packaged in a special wood box with wheels for easy storage! Includes instruction manual for inspiration and entertainment. This is the set you want for big building projects!

One thousand planks will give you plenty of versatility in the things you can build. Includes the booklet of building techniques with 40 illustrations and photographs. Kapla Construction Blocks are made for people all over the world, so there are no words. Pictures tell the whole story!

Kapla’s long and thin planks are based on the progressions of the uneven numbers 1:3:5. Three thicknesses for one width and five widths for one length. This ratio between bricks and stones and beams and planks now opens a whole new way of building. With these identical planks the builder can construct with the precision of artwork and the stability of stones. The use of identical unfixed pieces develops the child’s aptitude for organizing elements in a 3-dimensional space and allows them to discover and sharpen their manual ability in relation to objects. Kapla helps the child to understand the fundamental issues of geometry, physics and technology. It also introduces them to the world of art, and to the universe of shapes and volumes, while developing concentration and a feeling of balance.

Box features wheels on the bottom for easy movement.

Winners of the Dr. Toy Smart Play Smart Toy and Best Toy award in 2006!

Measures approximately 16" long x 16" wide x 16" high.
