Build with the blocks, connect with the story.
MakerBloks is an educational toy that combines hands-on play with a digital story.
Powered by imagination
MakerBloks inspire kids to think, design, and experiment. By engaging in a hands on experience with our color-coded and magnetically-connected blocks, kids learn the basics of electronics in a fun and creative way. We help kids as young as 6 years old become masters, not just consumers, of technology.
How it works
Connect the blocks
Each block contains a magnet so they can easily find the others, connect, and then become a fully functioning circuit. Play around with different sequences, and get to know each of their functions and what they can do. Battery + LED = Light!
Make something new
Build your own games with each kit! A keyboard that plays any note you can think of. A buzzer board for your own personal game show. PLUS, each kit (and expansion pack) comes with a set of built-in interactive games. Circuits + Imagination = Endless possibilities!
Follow the story
Our original Story App brings you to MakerCity, where the blocks are used to unlock puzzles and solve problems. Follow chapter by chapter as you learn about the crazy inventors, friendly neighbours and the evil doctor who is trying to destroy MakerCity.
For the curious soul, who likes to find the answers to things with unusual methods, and enjoys the twists and turns on the way to solving a mystery.
For the budding musician, who walks to the beat of his or her own drum, whistles while he or she works and appreciates a good tune.
Come explore MakerCity with Margot and Gavin. These curious kids need your help fixing a movie set, launching a rocket into outer space, and lots of other challenges that only you and your MakerBloks can solve!
