Product Description:

As if two-dimensional building puzzles weren't enough, KEVA Brain Builders goes all out for the third dimension. The goal is to use up to twenty wooden KEVA planks to replicate the chosen puzzle card. Each of the thirty cards shows a three-dimensional object from a two-dimensional perspective: the front, side, and top. Based on the information from these angles, your challenge is to build an object or structure which looks identical to the angles on the card. Solve puzzles in three difficulty levels to become a master of 3-D puzzle-solving!

Use KEVA® planks to build 3-D models! This little set includes 20 pine KEVA® planks and 30 puzzle cards. Each card shows a colorful 2-dimensional diagram of an object, illustrated from different vantage points (ie. front, side, and top views). Your challenge is to use the planks to recreate the model in 3-dimensional form. This can be tricky, since the diagrams are technical and the objects hard to recognize until you've finished building the 3-D versions. Three levels of difficulty. Contents store in a small black zippered case.

Publisher Description:

Approach KEVA from a whole new angle with this interactive STEM tool! Brain Builders combines 20 KEVA planks with a set of double-sided puzzle cards. Each stimulating card features a 2-D challenge on one side and its solution on the other. The goal is to recreate 2-D patterns into 3-D structures. The 2-D cards show the design from different angles highlighting the front, side and overhead view and increase in difficulty from beginner to expert. Manipulate your KEVA planks to successfully duplicate the balance, proportion, composition and geometry featured on each card. Once you think you've solved the blueprint, flip it over to check the solution—try to resist the urge to peek! As each build becomes more challenging, patience and confidence is gained through trial and error. From picnic tables and rowboats to swans and snails, you will be amazed what your brain will build! Time to put your 3-D imagination to the test!

    I'm always on the look out for STEM games that can be independently worked during homeschool time and this one was well rated.

    This type of activity is fun for kids as most kids love to build, but it also presents a challenge to them and forces them to think and try different things as they build.

    Our four kids already love playing with these planks during real aloud time in the morning. I know they'll enjoy the inspiration from the cards/booklet, and hopefully we can get even more for Christmas.

    Great portable thinking toy
    My son is looking toward architecture as a career. He's nine, so he has a ways to go. This seemed like a great set for car trips and play dates. We have held timed contests as a family too. Excellent gift!
