Castle Blocks are the second in a series of architecturally themed building blocks created for kids (and adults) of all ages. This set of blocks was designed with unique castle/fortress detailing, allowing the builder to create his or her own Camelot. Castle Blocks come without a set of instructions, and that’s by design. Each set includes seven different shapes, 120 pieces and multiple plan configurations.
Designed by architect Steven W. Hurd, these blocks are the first in a series of architecturally themed building blocks created for all ages. Each set is designed around a particular building type, but the unique pieces allow for creativity and imaginative construction. The blocks are carved from imported hardwood, and the set includes 145 pieces, 15 different shapes, a printed plan and instructions. Castle Blocks are also available. “The Cathedral shape offers a dramatic initial building project and the unique shapes allow for a different level of imaginative play than most sets of building blocks,” Hurd told TDmonthly. Launch date: November 2006.
