every piece is exactly the same so builders don’t waste time searching for a
particular connector, carefully maintaining an inventory of parts or
discovering that they do not have enough of the correct pieces to finish their
design. The planks are precision-milled so they are all exactly the same and
they stack with unbelievable stability. The simplicity and uniformity of KEVA
planks allows limitless possibilities in construction. You will be astounded
what simple stacking of high-quality, ingeniously-designed planks can do! Read
more Strengthens STEM KEVA teaches a basic understanding of physics and
engineering concepts. From the simplest counting exercises to the most complex
bridge challenges, KEVA can change abstract concepts into tangible form.
Children can get a “feel” for numbers and a first-hand understanding of the
physical forces acting on the planks. The fundamental understanding of number
relationships gained by a first grader playing with blocks can benefit him or
her years later in high school calculus. With no glue or connectors
required…simply stack the precision-milled, solid KEVA planks to create
buildings, monuments and geometric forms. Loved by kids as young as 5 and as
old as 100. Lesson plans Research shows children who play with blocks tend to
do better in mathematics and science. Physically handling the blocks builds a
fundamental understanding of quantities, equality, geometry, etc. The KEVA
Educator’s Manual is loaded with lesson plans and classroom activities. The
guide shows you how to add a hands-on component to math, science, reading,
social studies, and other subjects. Award Winner All KEVA sets are fully
compatible. This allows builders to expand their masterpiece capacity. Because
of the simplicity of the planks and the timeless quality of the product, KEVA
is proud to be an esteemed award winner of Academics’ Choice Award, Disney
Family Fun Toy of the Year, Major Fun Award, Parents’ Choice Gold Award and
many others. KEVA is exclusive to MindWare. Read more Two types of planks-Pine
and Maple! Pine planks Standard KEVA planks are made from high-quality pine.
Pine KEVA planks are affordable and durable. The wood grain creates a
beautiful, natural finish.The select factories awarded to produce pine KEVA
planks in China are held to the strictest standards for quality, safety and
manufacturing tolerances. Kids and adults love KEVA It’s the ideal activity to
help kids gain an understanding of balance and proportion, as well as an
interest in architecture, building and design. Because spectacular builds can
be completed with KEVA, adults can’t resist getting in on the fun. Children of
all ages can be challenged and successful building with KEVA planks—it is the
perfect family activity! Maple planks Maple KEVA are our very best planks. All
of our maple planks are made from top grade maple in the USA (Maine). Maple
KEVA planks are the standard for museums and schools because the planks are
tough enough to withstand heavy daily use. For families, maple is an heirloom
toy that can be passed to the next generation. Durable maple maintains its
edges and corners so the planks continue to stack perfectly over time. Maple
is a closed pore wood so it resists fingerprints. The tough wood also resist
dings and scratches on the surfaces so they will look beautiful for years.
KEVA Maple sets include instructions for both Structures and Contraptions.
