Build with the blocks, connect with the story.
MakerBloks are electronic building blocks that combine real world 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.
Coming late 2017
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.
Coming late 2017
Everything has a foundation. Our starter kit brings you the basics of circuitry, with built-in interactive games to get you going!
Once you get the hang of it meet us in MakerCity, where you’ll meet Gabi. She needs your help solving puzzles, dimming the lights on a movie set, fixing a stove in Chef’s kitchen, launching into outer space. You know, just average MakerCity kinds of things!
