Category Description for Arckit Kits:

A truly inspiring line of modular building kits for the young architect! These kits are not just toys or childrens building blocks; they are the real deal, used professionally by architects, universities, and model hobbyists across the world. Requiring no glue, cutting, or soldering, these modular kits are built wall-by-wall on peg-fitted floor panels. Each kit comes with a different series of building blocks, including floor panels of varying sizes, walls, stairs, roofs, windows, doors, and almost any architectural component you can imagine in a real house.

To begin, a floor plan is required, just like in real architecture: every floor panel can be linked or pushed together with another, allowing almost any size or shape of house. Once all floors are linked, pegged walls, windows, and other components can be inserted into the peg-ready floor panels. My favorite part of these kits is their sheer versatility. Different pieces can be combined to create virtually any house, room, or architectural effect desired. For example, window sections can create framed windows, half windows, or even frameless corner windows. Stairs can similarly be joined to create double-stairs, U-shaped stairs, stairs with landings, or even T-shaped stairs (think 1800s mansion entrance). Kits also come with paper which can be printed with textures from Arckits website to give finished projects the perfect look. Once youre done with a building, or if you want to redesign it, simply lift each piece out of its peg-slot.

To top it all off, the application of these kits is as dynamic as their construction. They can be used as advanced building kits for kids, to teach architecture as a school subject or hobby, or for model hobbyists. These kits are straightforward and accessible for anyone. Who knows; after your little architects are finished with their ultra-modern houses, you might just be able to create your own dream house!

i Have a grandson who loves mindcraft, solid wood blocks and legos. Which edition of arckit would you reccomend for a 10 yr old?
A shopper on Oct 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There are different directions you could go. Any of the basic Arckits - like the one you tagged here - will give him a building experience. They all tend to be houses. #013809 will come closest to a MindCraft experience. You might also want to take a look at #030134 - Young Architect's kit which combines drawing floorplans with building.
