What It Is

What It Is

Dado Cubes are a twist on classic building blocks. These cubes, which come in different sizes and colors, each have four slits in them that kids use to connect the cubes. Just slide a cube onto the corner of another cube to build horizontal or vertical 3-D sculptures. Each set comes with 10 plastic cubes, scaled from one inch to five inches. Kids can build stable structures up to 32 inches high. Combine different Dado sets for even more building fun.

Dado Cubes are different than the traditional building blocks or bricks. The cubes are great for younger kids as an introduction to proportion, balance, composition, color, and structure. Dado Cubes can also help kids develop spatial awareness and problem-solving skills.

Why It’s Fun

Building toys engage the imagination—first and foremost. Kids love experimenting with stacking, building, and discovering what does and doesn't work as they build. The results are simple and clear: if a structure works, the blocks stay up; if not they fall over.

This is play that really isn't complete without the individual child's imagination, and it can be as varied as the kids want it to be.

Who It’s For

Dado Cubes are for ages 3 and up.

What to Be Aware of

This is simple, classic construction play for kids. No batteries are needed; just imagination.

While there are definite learning elements of the play, the fun definitely comes first and the learning is a happy byproduct.
