Skallops Starter Set

What do you get when you combine two decks of cards with laser cut wooden clips to hold them together? Lots of open-ended play! Set these on the table, walk your kid through an included example, and let the building begin. This pile of deceptively simple components is a construction revelation, offering hands-on problem solving opportunities and an invitation to dream big. From giant spheres to swoopy bi-planes, there is no right way to build with Skallops—and the more kids experiment, the more they learn about structure and symmetry through experiential learning (no lectures necessary). Turn off the Minecraft and get busy! (E&M Labs, 37.95)
