LaQ (pronounced as La Kyuu) is a very simple, yet highly creative and tactile construction toy.
Its uniqueness comes from using just 7 types of block parts (2 base parts and 5 connector parts) to make an infinite possibility of creative 2D to 3D models. The sounds from connecting parts (Snap! And Click!) makes building a fun and satisfying experience. LaQ allows kids to start with simple shapes, and then rapidly imagine and build their own creations. The largest sets have complex 3D models that challenge teenagers and adults alike.
LaQ pieces make a fun snapping noise when putting the pieces together. A child will know that the pieces are firmly connected with this snapping noise, and this “SNAP!” will encourage the child to continue creating a personal toy. Piecing together these parts are not only great fun, but helps a child learn how to concentrate through creative play.
Its simplicity, high quality, 12 vibrant colours, and the tactile "snap and click" experience when connecting parts, make it fun and addictive.
LaQ blocks are fun to build, fun to take apart, and rebuild again and again!
The "Q" in LaQ is for the Japanese word "kyuu" which means sphere, and LaQ is completely unique in how the blocks can create spherical geometric shapes using a minimum number of parts. A sphere is the most infinite shape of all polyhedral objects, and LaQ is the ultimate block to explore the possibilities in creating from a child's imagination.
The picture below shows how a child can learn and have fun making simple 2D models through to more complicated and advanced models as they develop greater skills and familiarity.
From starting with building 2D models using the flat parts, kids easily master building curved and 3D models with amazing sets that showcase curved designs or movable parts such as the Dino Kingdom, Venom, Power Shovel.
Parents love LaQ because the toy encourages concentration, spatial ability and engineering skills. A great hidden benefit due to the low number of part types is that parts can be easily replaced - 1 lost piece doesn't matter! Finally all of the sets come with instructions to build multiple models - ensuring hours of fun from building and rebuilding. Find out more about learning with LaQ.
LaQ has won many toy awards including the Dr. Toy awards for Top 10 Building, Top 10 Creative and 100 Best categories.
