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 Great Educational Toy These toys are great for helping children learn to replicate designs and to build critical thinking skills as they play. They can build their own constructions or use the cards to get ideas of projects they can build. My 4 year old daughter and 4 year old niece love them and are showing an improvement in their problem solving skills. They are using the junior set and are doing well following the pictures to build specific constructions. As a teacher I appreciate the open-ended nature of this toy and the way it helps children of all ages and abilities to construct unique designs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Take Along and Calming! We love the portability of this Keva Brain Builders kit. Efficient design makes the kit easy to take with us. We are not good at waiting and these puzzles are meditative and engaging. The 20 cards offer a good variety of designs and challenges for the 7-year-old. They also serve as inspiration for free play and custom design and engineering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made great stocking stuffers I gave these to my kids as stocking stuffers. They instantly started doing the puzzles. I'm impressed how well the pieces are holding up to my son. They also enjoy being able to make their own designs as well

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good building toy I thought this set would be great for a 6 year old boy and 8 year old girl. The boy wanted to play with them immediately but the Jr. set was way too easy for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! Grandchild, 3 1/2 years old, LOVES this set. It is so simple but sparks creativity. The puzzle cards are perfect. We will be purchasing more planks soon. This is a great starter set to see if there is interest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Stimulating This is a fun game that helps increase spatial reasoning and fosters creativity. I wish I would have had a toy/game like this growing up. It's fun and I appreciate that there are many ways one can use the planks and cards (our rule is everything goes back in the handy carrying case)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than expected! I thought my 5 year old son might enjoy this toy, but I was wrong: he loves it! The challenge of the cards are a perfect level for him. The older and younger have fun working together and building. I feel like this is such a great tool to build creativity and inspire future engineers and architects.
