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.

Enjoy constructing the Quadrilla Twist and Rail Set from Hape! This is a complete wooden marble run set with some bright colours, straight rails, fun curves and a unique see-saw piece.

Once constructed, spend countless hours pouring the marbles down the mazes and then take it apart and rebuild all over again!

The absolute highlight is the red see-saw piece because it influences the marbles in a fascinating way. When the see-saw is filled to the top, it tips in the direction with the most marbles and pours them out in an exciting race to the bottom. It's fun to try to predict which marble will reach the bottom of the run first!

Another cool feature of Quadrilla marble runs is the fact that you can see the marbles on their paths all the time. You can also stop them or change their directions. The Quadrilla Twist and Rail Set opens next to endless possibilities to learn about the 3 dimensions and to think in 3-D!

From very simple to highly complex - only your and your child's imagination and creativity set the limits to what you can create with Quadrilla!
