Proportion, balance, structure, and colour – Dado Cubes combine art and science as kids explore real architectural principles.
It's an exciting twist on classic building blocks! Young imaginations are engaged as the slits on each cube are interlocked to create an unlimited number of three-dimensional structures.
Constructed horizontally, vertically, or nested together, these blocks invite visual-spatial development and problem-solving for all ages through design-centered, attention-grabbing fun.
And the best part – Every configuration, no matter how you put them together, ends up looking like a brilliant piece of architectural art!
Help your young genius develop a keen eye for form, design, colour, size, shape, and space with the beautifully creative delight of Dado Cubes.

Employed by Occupational Therapists:
"Dado helps children improve fine motor skills, including hand strength, finger dexterity, and coordination of small muscle movements. With mastery of the movements required to fit the cubes together, children take obvious pride in their creative constructions. Psychosocially, children develop skills as they share ideas and talk about their play goal."Elizabeth Paskar, Occupational Therapist, MissouriEndorsed by Classroom Teachers:
"The open-ended nature of Dado Cubes, their unique groove-connecting assembly, and the challenge of achieving the highly desired perfect balance draw children in. As my students are busy building, talking through their plans, and making adjustments, I am amazed by their critical thinking and problem solving skills."Stacy Coulter, Kindergarten Educator, KansasValuable in Ongoing Visual Spatial Research:
"In my work with visual-spatial children in various corners of the world, I have found that one distinguishing feature is their ability to visualize in multiple dimensions. Many visual-spatial learners speak of 4- and 5-dimensional mental images! Dado Cubes would offer these individuals, young and old, a hands-on way of demonstrating what their incredible minds are able to see and create. For children who lack such ability, this wonderful new toy may help them to expand their understanding of dimensionality, viewing their world from a unique perspective!"Alexandra Shires Golon, Director, Visual-Spatial Resource
