The story behind Kapla is truly an inspirational one. As a young child, inventor Tom van der Bruggen dreamt of someday having a castle in France. A highly improbable dream you would think, but his childhood aspiration ultimately did become reality. This experience was the driving force behind the creation of Kapla. He wanted a versatile building set that could be built and rebuilt into a variety of different designs. Taken from the Dutch words Kabouter Plankjes, Kapla means "small planks." This is what these building sets are comprised of; not your traditional cube-shaped building blocks but instead long, thin planks specifically designed with proportions (approx. 4 5/8" x 15/16" x 5/16") that balance the two principles of building and sculpting. Exclusively manufactured in France, each piece is made of French Marine Pine and is precisely cut to identical dimensions which allows for great stability in the completed projects. Kapla sets are premier building units that allow for the cultivation of hands on creativity and ingenuity. ~ Enh
