The KAPLA plank

KAPLA® is a natural construction game made up of identical pine planks. Due to their unique size, in the ratio of 1:3:5, KAPLA planks are an innovative building block, ideal for creating a wide variety of structures.

A block play classic for over 30 years, KAPLA® is simple and just requires a child’s imagination. No glue, no screws, no clips. Each plank is simply placed on top of another: gravity and balance alone hold the planks in place…

KAPLA®  introduces children to a world where art and science coexist beautifully. The game allows children to build, create and experiment using their own imagination. It stimulates creativity, encourages logical thinking, dexterity and concentration. 

This award-winning open-ended game provides endless possibilities. Hours of fun guaranteed, alone or together with friends and family !

KAPLA® is suitable for children aged 3+. Initially very simple and intuitive, KAPLA® adapts to every child’s creative ambition. As a result, educators use KAPLA® worldwide. Children learn every time they build and advance their technique by playing: creations become increasingly complex with time and experience… Everything is possible with KAPLA planks!


An ecological toy

KAPLA planks are 100% untreated wood. We source it from pine forests in Les Landes, in the South-West of France. These forests are natural and renewable. Due to the purity and quality of the pine wood used, KAPLA planks will last for many years.

Meeting International Standards, we carefully select the raw material used for KAPLA planks. Specialised independent laboratories then carry out tests to confirm the quality of the wood.

A high precision manufacturing process ensures the exact same size, the correct ratio and the perfectly balanced and smooth quality of each KAPLA plank. This results in stable constructions and counter lever potential.
