Get creative with the 15-in-1 LaQ Basic 311! As part of the Basic series, this intermediate set shows the basic steps and techniques in creating fun 3D LaQ models. Contains 650 pieces and instructions to build 15 interchangeable models. LaQ is a very simple, yet highly creative construction toy which offers an infinite possibility of creation from just 7 types of block parts (2 base parts and 5 joint parts). 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. 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. Fun to build and collect, children will have hours of fun!
