Product Details

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!

• Strengthens STEM, fine-motor, strategy, physics and basic engineering skills
• A new and exciting way to experience KEVA planks
• Perfect for on-the-go learning
• Includes 20 durable planks, 30 double-sided cards in a zippered carrying case

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun challenge! My daughter is having a blast with these! She loves the challenge of creating the designs on the cards. The blocks are of excellent quality and the carrying case is perfect. It's a go-to toy for going to her grandparents' house! I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Self-contained building game This is a fun way to get a child started with KEVA planks, simply building the picture on the card. The woodgrain on the picture sometimes makes it a bit tough to tell where there's a break in pieces, but it can be figured out. For fun, we'll build a card, then (using pieces from another KEVA set) figure out a way to scale it up to a bigger version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, open-ended building materials My 6 and 8 year olds enjoyed playing with these blocks in an open ended fashion- they use the cards to inspire some of their work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Challenging My 8 yr. old grandson absolutely loves Brain Builders. He took it on a vacation with him and has not stopped building! I would like to see more puzzle cards available, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We wanted a game to challenge our 7 year old son and ourselves. This is fun to do as a family. We wanted a fun game for family fun night. So many games seem to be ones that do not challenge the mind. This is very tiny and can be brought anywhere. Cute zipper tote too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My brain hurts! Lol Bought this for my daughter for her 8th birthday. Wanted to have a game to challenge all three kids and help build spatial relationship understanding. Played with it with her. Ugh! My brain hurts. It is fun and challenging! She has played with it with her brother too. They had to think to hard to fight. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stimulating The KEVA Brain Builders has been an instant success in my classroom. It is stimulating and engaging for all levels of students. The kids can't keep their hands off of it. Great brain builder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is awesome My 4 y.o. loves the keva planks! He jumped right in without parental instruction and started creating the designs from the card. He can complete some designs independently and others we work on together. We have been to science world in Vancouver, Canada where we first discovered Keva and I was surprised that months later he remembered these planks. I recommend looking at the website for science world to see how big some of those designs are! Nonetheless, we will be purchasing more as our children grow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great brain exercise for the kids I like the concept of looking at a 2D image and translating that to a 3D structure. After my girls have done the 30 puzzles, I plan to have my girls build 3D structures and then have them draw the corresponding 2D images. That should be interesting!
