Teachers Testimonials

“KAPLA® – absolute number one favourite resource in my classroom – I haven’t yet found a lesson I can’t use it in. As versatile and as genius as another click together plastic alternative(!) but with the beauty and tactile pleasure of a natural material. An essential creative classroom ingredient.” 

Kathy Harris, Teacher, Holland Haven Primary School, Holland-On-Sea

“KAPLA® has been a popular addition to my classroom. […] The simple little wooden blocks that are KAPLA have opened the door to limitless learning and play. Children from 4-12 years old all love the KAPLA blocks and all gain so much from their play with them which not many other resources could say they are truly suitable for all ages and stages of learning. […] They often don’t even realise they are actually learning as it is so much fun. They learn resilience and perseverance. Building can work or it may fall down but they just try again. They learn problem solving skills through having to find ways to get the height or design they want. […] Children have naturally realised that working together supports them in building bigger and better, even children who can sometimes find it challenging to work collaboratively with others. For those that think they are costly, yes it is a box of wooden bricks but ask a child and that box is not just a box of bricks, it is a bridge, a house, a chair, a chance to succeed, a chance to fail and then a chance to try again. I definitely think that is money well spent!”

Researchers on KAPLA

“KAPLA planks can be used at early stages, as they don’t answer to a specific construction technique. Assembly games allow children to develop further their creativity as well as their motor skills.” Monier, C., 2015. Le jeu comme outil pédagogique au cycle 3 ESPE (École supérieure du professorat et de l’éducation), Paris, France “It appears clearly that KAPLA supports and influences positively the development of motor skills, of cognitive abilities, of musical sensitivity, of linguistic education, and of socio-emotional awareness.”

Mattersberger, R., 2004. Kabouter Plankjes: Wichtelhölzchen in Kinderhände, BAfEP (Kollege für Kindergartenpädagogik) Innsbruck, Austria
