Peapods Favorite #19: Keva Planks Wooden Construction Toy

Peapods Favorites is our continuing series about our all-time favorite toys. Keep and an eye on Facebook and Pinterest for more favorites through the holiday season!

We've mentioned it a few times before, but we really like Keva Planks. They seem really simple at first, but Keva's precise dimensions make it possible for kids to build elaborate structures like towers, bridges, arches, and ball runs.

Keva Planks offer tremendous play value which is unmatched by almost any other toy we sell. Kids from three years old to 13 years old can make fabulous structures which tend to get more complex and original as kids get older.

Since the Minnesota company Mindware took over distribution of Keva in the past couple of years, they've expanded Keva's range of possibilities with kits like the catapult, trebuchet, and contraptions sets. Keva Contraptions sets are made from pine while Keva's Structures sets are made from pine or are available in a made in the USA maple version which comes in a sturdy canvas storage bag.

And, as if that weren't enough, we now feature Bionic Blox, a Keva connector that extends play in whole new directions. Made in the USA, Bionic Blox clip on to Keva Planks like a tinker toy hub, so you can build with them in whole new directions!

So give just about any kid some Keva Planks and see what they do with them. Our guess is they'll be playing with them for years!

Plus, be sure to check out our brand new Keva play table in the store!
