Smooth, precise Dado Planks are candied color for the eyes it's true. Though you'll relish most - the SWEET satisfaction in building and creating with impeccable precision.

Our durable, high quality plastic building planks feature precise notches so your fine motor and logic skills get to run wild. Fit them into one another or slide a solid plank in the mix. Connect and interlock on a whim or carefully plan ahead. Either way, you'll build configurations that are surprising and well beyond ordinary. The combination of standard building planks with clever notched planks provide versatility and stability that make us shout, "By George- now THIS is fun with construction!"

(Seriously, we've been known to be giddy over the genius stuff we've created with Dado Planks. Fun, fun, FUN!)

Specifically designed to accommodate the building of large, intricate structures. 106 pieces are strong and interlock with amazing precision. Dado Planks - The newest members of the Dado family really stack up!

    Review for Dado Planks
    Posted 11/25/2013 by Pat Smith

    My 2yr old grandson loves to stack things but becomes frustrated when they fall over. With Dado Planks they stay interlocked preventing them from falling. It makes him feel so proud to accomplish this.

    very satisfied; professor of teacher education Pre-K-12; grandson is only two but gets plenty of basic learning and manipulative skills, motor and vision, with the planks that one would expect; very durable, bright colors, expecting planks to last years;
