We live in a wonderful world surrounded by electronics which does make life easier.
However, we all want our children to grow up naturally, to use their hands, put things together, not just shift pixels around on a computer screen. There is no better way than encouraging your child to play with wooden blocks, to build real 3-dimensional models. The included building instruction will give some ideas, your child will quickly come up with her own ideas.
The Classic 0 set is our smallest one, but as you can see from the examples, there is plenty to build. The Matador parts will last for many years and you can add additional blocks and pins at any time.
Matador is a construction set with wooden blocks that get connected through wooden pins. The blocks have holes to fit the pins.
The idea was generated over 100 years ago: a father watched his children getting frustrated while playing with wooden blocks; any complex structure they tried to build simply collapsed. Being an engineer, he designed a wooden toy construction set made of blocks that could be connected with wooden pins. The idea took off and has delighted many generations of children.
The possibilities are almost limitless. Each set comes with its own building instructions, all with clear illustrations on how to assemble the models. However, Matador will also encourage your child to put together their own ideas.
Matador is made of untreated wood from copper beech trees, grown in Austria in environmentally sustainable forests. All Matador parts are made from non-toxic materials and comply with the very stringent European EN 71 1-11 standard, which specifies safety requirements for toys.
The Classic range uses smaller blocks (2x2 cm), which allows the building of more complex models. This is the toy for young and old alike which has delighted many generations of children in Europe.
The Classic series extends from Classic 1 (230 parts) to Classic 5 (710 parts). The building instructions, included with every set, have detailed illustrations of many models, but there are virtually no limits to a child’s creativity.
