LaQ (pronounced as La Kyuu) is a very simple, yet highly creative construction toy.
Made in Japan for over 25 years, it delights children of all ages with a building experience using their senses of sight, sound and touch.
LaQ accelerates left and right brain learning simply through play, and has been widely used in educational centres around the world
Its uniqueness comes from its Japanese design - just 7 types of block parts (2 base parts and 5 connector parts) allow you to make an infinite possibility of creative 2D and 3D models.
I enjoy playing with LaQ because I can make anything and the possibility are limitless. My favourite creation is the helicopter and I'm currently working on a y-wing starfighter.It’s more fun and you can do so much more given the curved and 3D connectors.

You can make creative, fun, 3D objects with the LaQ pieces which are easy to assemble and take apart. The instruction booklets are easy to follow and you can use your imagination as well!

My 5 year old daughter has always enjoyed construction toys, but LaQ has taken her love for building to a new level! We have the Sweet Collection and from what I can see, she loves how she can used the same pieces to create a range of different objects, from baskets and boxes to a pastry stand with little cakes and animal figurines... We’re so happy with it, we’ll definitely be buying more sets!
Kristie from Melbourne (5 year old daughter)
I bought this for my son's 5th birthday and he loves it. He's always liked construction and usually just comes up with his own creations. LaQ is going to provide new skills in following instructions and persistence as well as being a fantastic fine motor activity. I would 100% recommend this product as I also enjoyed the time with my 5 year old learning about it and using it
Kylie (5 year old son)
Initially purchased LaQ in Japan for my 2 sons (10 and 13yo) to platy with in between skiing breaks - absolutely loved it. So glad to have found LaQ available in Australia. Bought this product for my 13 yo who loves it.
Mark (10 and 13 year old sons)
Well received by discerning ten year old. My ten year old grandson is building complex creations of his own design with the LaQ set. He prefers the LaQ to his Lego
Diane (10 year old grandson)
...The greatest benefit has been that there is no restriction for them. They can opt to use the templates that you provided (and many did when they first started exploring the toy), or they can experiment with their own designs and ideas.
...In relation to social learning, I noticed that the children were excited about exploring LaQ on their own but also very excited about trying to make some of the creations that they saw their peers create.
...LaQ is a creative, open ended, construction product unlike any other... it is incredible that these simple pieces have such a variety of uses...children as young as 4 years can use this, alongside older children, teens
...I noticed very quickly the level of concentration that children apply when using LaQ. They are completely engaged and choose to stay with building even when things that normally distract them come along.
