Bokah Blocks are modern day Tinker Toys


When I was a little kid, we didn’t have money for LEGO building toys, so we had Lincoln Logs and Tinker Toys which were both made of wood. Although I would have loved to have bucket of LEGO bricks back then, I enjoyed the toys I did have. Wooden building toys may seem too old school in this day and age, but I’m happy to report that new wooden block toys are still being invented like Bokah Blocks. Bokah Blocks are made in the US from premium basswood and consist of two building elements. There are blocks called Bokahs that come in 4 different lengths from 1.25 – 8 inches long, and Bendys which are flexible connectors that join two Bokahs. Using a combination of these parts, kids (and adults) can create rotating and moving models that are only limited by the builder’s imagination. Bokah Blocks come in a 219 piece set that stores in a backpack and is priced at $149.00. For more info visit

    Super idée !

    C’est vrai que les jeux de constructions ont bien besoin de renouveau, le temps des Kapla est peut-être fini ?!
    Une très bonne idée de cadeau pour un anniversaire
