Who would love this: KAPLA builders - especially the young & aspiring builders
Building with KAPLA is like embarking on an adventurous journey - What would be the outcome? Would it look magnificent? Are we pushing it too far? Would it collapse before it reaches the desired height? Would this be another wondrous creation that would make our hearts beat in excitement? If you need some KAPLA inspirations, KAPLA Art book is a great place to start! Today, I’m going to share about “KAPLA Art Book 3 - Green” - kindly gifted by KAPLA Australia.
Why I love ❤️ this book:
(1) KAPLA Building Ideas: Architectural Models
KAPLA Art Books are a collection of inspiring building ideas exclusively designed by KAPLA. Each of the hard-covered Art Book contains 28 pages of gorgeous KAPLA structures, collated and organised according to builder’s ability level and types of creations. Book 3 focuses on simple architecture. The book shows us the models in colour photographs, accompanied by hand-sketched technical drawings that give us a glimpse of the construction details. KAPLA were originally created in the late 1960s as base material for an ambitious castle model project (upon recognising the limitations of common wooden blocks in market). KAPLA is meant to build what other blocks can’t do; when it comes to certain architectural aspects such as lintels, roofs and floors - KAPLA aces it! The building models in this book range from the modern conventional (symmetrical, straight and tall skyscraper structures), oriental-style (multi-inclined roofs, gable design), to creative geometrical and swirling patterns. They are visually-stunning!
(2) Straightforward & Simple KAPLA Building Techniques
This KAPLA Green book is a fun and engaging project to do with young kids. There is no complex techniques in this book. The building steps are relatively straightforward and simple (compared to the other more advanced KAPLA Art Books). We were thrilled to test out some of the easy techniques that we have never tried before. The models can be built using 200 planks or less (which is perfect for those who already owned the basic “KAPLA 200 Box”).
(3) Good Quality KAPLA Art Book
The Art Book is artistically-designed and printed, and would make a beautiful coffee table book, and a useful beginner guide for any young KAPLA builders.
