It's no wonder that KEVA planks have caught the attention of Mensa, DreamWorks and Destination Imagination! It's easy to bring this magic into your home or classroom and watch your eight-year-olds learn and grow.
The exacting proportions that make KEVA planks fit together in so many incredible ways date back to the 12th Century and a mathematical discovery by Leonardo Fibonacci. Playing with KEVA planks builds a foundation for math and engineering, as well as science, art and fun!
That's right our original Maple KEVA Plank Set require no glue or connectors ... simply stack the KEVA blocks and planks to create monuments, buildings and geometric forms. Eight-year-olds will build their hand-eye-coordination while they gain an understanding of balance and proportion, in addition to an interest in architecture, building and design. Each KEVA set comes with a full-color idea booklet with build-out instructions for creating incredible structures. Premium Maple planks stack perfectly time after time because they are tough and durable, and the Maple grain makes each building unique and beautiful.
Once your kids master the basics of building with KEVA planks and blocks they will have a wide variety of other challenges to move on to from there! KEVA Brain Builder and Brain Builder Junior will teach young brains to think in multiple dimensions with this interactive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) tool. Brain Builder sets come with challenging puzzle cards that help kids learn to translate a 2D picture into a 3D structure. The pictured cards are numbered in order of difficulty from beginner to expert. These kits offer hours of confidence building activity that helps kids learn to recognize balance, proportion, composition and geometry. Great classroom activity for individuals and small groups!
