In pursuit of a childhood dream I moved from Holland to France, bought a ruined farm house and from it built a castle in stone. The concept of KAPLA is a result of that building experience.
We have all played with buildings blocks, but the KAPLA plank, only one size, is the best adapted for building without gluing or fixing. Master of manners: master of self.
Our society fails to recognise the importance of developing coordination simultaneously with intelligence to obtain balance and harmony of mind.
By combining the skills of ingenuity and creativity, KAPLA increases children’s capacity to concentrate and develops their ability to adapt to an ever changing world.
KAPLA is a delightful medium to introduce children to the world of artistic creativity.
Through building, one builds character.
