A young art historian and antique furniture restorer, Tom van der Bruggen, is responsible for the creation of this original kit. His dream was to build his own medieval castle, which he had first attempted using wooden blocks. He soon found that the shape of classic blocks does not allow one to build roofs or floors. For this kit, he found inspiration in the wooden beams of medieval buildings, and after a number of experiments he chose an aspect ratio of 1:3:5, meaning the height is three times the thickness and the length is five times the height. You will be surprised by the many different objects you can build with these carefully crafted wooden planks.
The special name of this kit, KAPLA, has its origins in the Dutch "Kabouter Plankjes," which freely translates to "magical wood." To make it truly magical, KAPLA selects the best quality wood, which is dried, cut on precise machines, carefully sorted and packaged. As a result of this demanding process, each plank is created with straight edges. Children will learn accuracy, patience, and the ability to work together when playing with this kit. The KAPLA 100 kit is also perfect for acquainting children with the concepts of center of gravity and balance.
