Bilderhoos Set - NEW!
As a youngster, I spent hours under a dark green wool army blanket that was thrown over a rope, strung between two trees. That blanket became a house, a store, a library, and a hospital. And in the sweltering humid Panamanian afternoons, the heat was nearly unbearable. So, I appreciate the design and possibilities that Bilderhoos allows.
Invented by a graphic artist and a science professor, the Bilderhoos Play Set will give your child the kind of flexible play that encourages creativity, independence, and engineering skills. This 58-piece child-size architectural play set lets your child build a playhouse, a store, a sled, a tower, and so much more. The boards fit together securely using precision-cut slots and are sturdy enough to climb on; they will hold up to 500 pounds without buckling. Made from Baltic birch, the Bilderhoos boards are reversible, and the edges of each piece are rounded and sanded to a smooth, soft finish. Two hand-holds centered within many longboards provide a better grip for small builders and encourage collaborative building. All pieces are reconfigurable without tools so your children can build and rebuild over and over again. When not in use, Bilderhoos Play Set boards can be compactly stacked. Most reversible boards are a bright color on one side (Rocket Red, Grass Green, Ocean Blue, and Sunbeam Yellow), and a natural wood tone on the other. All paint and stains used are child-safe and fade resistant. All boards are coated with exterior polyurethane and can be used indoors or outdoors, if not left outside in damp or wet conditions.
