We are serious about play. Read more about our unique products and vision on this page.
Play is serious
It is fundamentally important for building the skills we need to become independent, creative, problem-solving adults.
This is why, we have designed BAKOBA. To keep children playing. For hours and hours and years to come.
We’ve constructed each element, so it can be combined in unlimited ways. Made the materials flexible and sturdy, so you can twist and turn them into anything you can imagine.
Made the quality extremely high, so once you’ve built something, it will stay together, and you can play without fear of anything breaking or falling apart. Play indoors as well as outdoors. The light BAKOBA materials float, so they’re perfect for the pool, the tub and easy to clean in the washing machine.
BAKOBA is constructed to keep children playing from they are 2 to grown up. Our sets are made, to continuously build motor skills and ignite imagination. And because imagination knows no boarders, we’ve designed connectors that allow you to combine BAKOBA with other toys, creating infinite possibilities. Because we don’t believe toys should set limits.
We believe they should inspire to endless play.
We are big supporters of "open-ended play" and therefore we have developed a "Connector", which makes it possible to combine BAKOBA with many other toys. Connectors are included in all boxes, making it easy for the kids to combine and explore in endless ways.
It is important to us that our toys do not set boundaries, but instead create endless possibilities - also across the children's other toys. That way, we are convinced that the children will have the best play experience possible!
You can play with BAKOBA in many ways and water play is one of them. BAKOBA is the perfect toy to bring to the bath, swimming pool or even to the beach or lake. It is a super fun activity for the kids to experiment with their construction's ability to float in the water!
The building blocks do not absorb the water and will therefore dry quickly afterwards.
BAKOBA is designed to be age adaptable, meaning that kids will not out-grow BAKOBA but instead grow WITH BAKOBA. Our toys are specifically designed for kids between 2 and 9, but often older kids and playful adults will have just as much fun playing along, creating a perfect playing environment for the entire family.
Benefits of the material
Our building blocks are made from a very durable and safe material called EVA foam. The building blocks can be twisted and bend without breaking, opening up entire new ways of building. The blocks are safe and noiseless, creating a comfortable playing environment for both kids, parents and teachers - and on top of that, they are easy to keep clean by simply washing them in the washing machine!

Best Creative Fun
"BAKOBA Creator presents near-limitless creative play possibilities that kids find to be an absolute delight. Youngsters get their first taste of the set's far-reaching capabilities by following illustrated step-by-step instructions in the accompanying manual to build an unusually eye-catching big wheeled vehicle that zips far across the floor with a single push, a stunningly impressive ship that floats on water, and an adorable dog that appears ready to wag its tail and spring into action..."
Our new IMAGIMALS-series – a mix of Imagination and Animals – is a fun and easy way to get started with BAKOBA – as early as the age of 2.
Is it a dragon, a crocodile, or a dinosaur? Turn the blocks around and suddenly other animals can be found. Discover how different animals appear depending on where you focus your vision. See the head of the dinosaur? That is also the tale of the crocodile!
For even more creativity, bring the blocks to the bathtub for a lot of water-fun! All parts are waterproof and can be washed in the washing machine for easy cleaning.
