The story ofKAPLA® begins with a Dutch antique dealer, Tom van der Bruggen, who dreamt of building his own castle.
During a trip to the south of France in the late 1960s, Tom fell in love with a ruined farm and decided to turn it into a castle. In order to visualize his project, he tried to make a scale model using wooden blocks.But these blocks did not allow him to build a precise and realistic model, so he created his own.
This is how the magic KAPLA plank came to life - the plank with which you can build everything! Tom called it KAPLA for 'KAbouter PLAnkje' which means ‘gnome plank’ in Dutch.
