Anchor Stone Building Blocks

Precisely following the original design concepts and module system of Froebel Gifts, Anchor Stone Building Blocks are made in Rudolstadt, Thuringia the home and native land of Friedrich Froebel

Start with set 6 and then add extension sets in sequential order to progressively build larger and more complex structures.

Each box includes a set of illustrated plans to develop the skills to design your own unique structures. The plans in extension set 10A require pieces from the four sets: 6, 6A, 8A and 10A.

It was from the collectors' community, that the stimulus came for a revival of the building blocks which had once enjoyed worldwide popularity. After several years of preparation and with strong support from the European Social Fund, the employment agency, the Community Development Association (LandesEntwicklungsGesellschaft - LEG) and the government of Thuringia, a new company, Modellbausteinspiele GmbH, was founded in 1995.
