KAPLA was invented in 1987 by Tom van der Bruggen. Born in the Netherlands, he studied the History of Art. Unsatisfied with the possibilities of standard blocks,Tom invented a plank based on the progressions of the uneven numbers 1:3:5. With these identical planks the builder can construct with the precision of artwork and the stability of stones.
Kaplan wooden blocks are safe, natural and non-toxic eco-friendly and made of pine derived from 100% renewable forests in France.
