Snap Together Toy Kits
LaQ is a new type of construction toy that is built entirely in Japan. It is currently sold in over 2,500 specialty store outlets around the world and has been the recipient of 7 prestigeous toy awards, including Dr. Toy's Top 10 Best Toys Award.
The "Q" in LaQ is for the Japanese word "kyuu" which means sphere. LaQ can actually be pieced together to create a complete sphere or any other geometric shape. A sphere is the most infinite shape of all polyhedral objects, and LaQ is the ultimate block with infinite possibilities for stimulating a child's imagination.
Introduction of LaQ
LaQ pieces make a unique snapping noise when connected. A child will know that the pieces are connected when hearing the 'snap' of the pieces! This tactile response from the toy encourages the child to continue creating his/her own personal toy. Piecing together these parts are not only great fun but helps a child learn how to concentrate on completing a task at hand.
First, a child can start out by enjoying the colors and various patterns which can be made on a flat surface. There are various patterns you can create and this will allow a child to learn a sense of color coordination. Next, you can challenge yourself with a three dimensional figure by starting out with a flat figure and gradually adding on more curved blocks.
LaQ is the only type of block which allows you to create curves and spheres. The amazing designs you can create full scale can be used as modeling materials for adults as well. LaQ is shaped like small chips and are easy to carry and store so you can play with them anywhere.
The LaQ Basic Hamacron Series has recently been welcomed as a recipient of the Parent's Choice Silver Honors Award. The Parent's Choice foundation's purpose is to search out and recommend products that help kids grow – imaginatively, physically, morally and mentally—fairly priced products that are fun, safe and socially sound.
LaQ is a snap together toy built from the highest quality of materials from Japan. Each kit is made up of 7 unique shapes that come in eight different colors. The patented side snapping feature and angular pieces allow the builder to create practically any geometric shape, model or character. LaQ has been proven by professional researchers and child psychologists in Japan to be an effective tool for stimulating creativity and problem solving skills in young children. In 2008, LaQ was named a Honors Award winner for the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Children's Products competition.
All LaQ products are made in a family owned an operated factory in Japan that adheres to the strictest standards of toy manufacturing. When buying an LaQ kit, you can rest assured that there is no lead or other toxic elements anywhere in the product.
