ANKER Blocks Introductory Set
2010 | ANKER | ANKER STEINBAUKASTEN
While wooden blocks are usually wooden toys, these blocks are made of stone (hardened silica sand). This is a product unique to Germany, which has a foundation stone culture of wall construction, while Japan has a post-and-beam culture. Children are said to work slowly and carefully when playing with these blocks. I wonder if it is because they feel like they are stacking stones instead of wood.
