We absolutely love the KAPLA Challenge set! It is a quest for perfect balance…work your way through the models presented by the 12 'Challenge Cards' using the 16 KAPLA planks at your disposal in this portable gift box.
Older children and adults will have their concentration and dexterity put to the test by the varying degrees of difficulty presented - it's up to you to accept the KAPLA Challenge!
During a trip to the south of France in the late 1960s, Tom fell in love with a ruined farm and decided to turn it into a castle. In order to visualize his project, he tried to make a scale model using wooden blocks. But these blocks did not allow him to build a precise and realistic model, so he created his own.
This is how the magic KAPLA plank came to life - the plank with which you can build everything! Tom called it KAPLA for 'KAbouter PLAnkje' which means ‘gnome plank’ in Dutch.
