Let’s start with a little history

Kaplas were created in 1986 by Tom van der Bruggen, a Dutch architect, when he started building his stone castle in Aveyron at the age of 25.
He first used cubes, which turned out to be way too big for the castle. He then replaced the cubes with wooden boards. Kaplas were thus invented!
The word Kapla comes from the dutch word “kabouter plankjes”, which literally means “goblin board”.
As a puzzle and a game of skill, kaplas require logical thinking, as well as creativity and fantasy.

The question remains of how to use kaplas !

It’s easy! You have to create original and challenging structures, in a group with other people or by yourself.
Then you’ll need to select, arrange and organize the kaplas into different shapes. This will be easy because children always have a wild imagination! It’s should also help you tap into your inner child and unleash your imagination. Build a castle, a tower, a boat, a dragon, a village or even an Ark!
