Thirteen Booster Kits

Booster Kits are intended for persons who have a set of blocks and wish to add additional pieces or specialized pieces that their children might use to make roads, fortresses, and so forth.  The initial booster kits are rectangle kits that will bolster a small kit purchased in past years - but they are also the perfect thing for the person who just wants some rectangles.   Following this, we have booster sets that allow you to expand your collection of blocks to add additional columns, roads, castle parts, triangles, arches or a number of other things.

Rectangle Kit #1


This is the most popular Booster Kit.  It allows you to increase the number of basic rectangles in a  smaller kit or to add rectangles to a kit bought earlier. One or two of these rectangle kits will expand your set of blocks and allow a growing child to make larger structures.

Rectangle Kit #2

This Booster Kit is heavy on the largest pieces - the 22" and 11" rectangles.  Great for foundations and large towers. If you purchased a Beginner Kit or smaller and want to add some large pieces to make larger buildings, these are the right blocks for foundations and base pieces.

Rectangle Kit #3

This booster kit emphasizes all of the basic Blocks except the 22". This kit is a good addition to any kit that suffers from being too small.  It adds multiples of the most basic and commonly used pieces.  In our experience, children are very fond of the 22 inch pieces, but there isn't too much you can build with them, and it's better to have lots of the regular blocks.

Rectangle Kit #4

This Kit ought to be our most popular booster - even if it's not.  This emphasizes the 11" and 5-1/2" inch blocks and these run out the soonest for most kids.  These basic blocks are at the heart of every structure and you can't have too many of them.  This is simplest and best addition for most sets of blocks.

Finial Kit


Finials make just the right thing to add the finishing touch to towers, castles and monuments.  We include a range of columns that will let you dress up your Church or library and add a touch of elegance.  Forts can always use a few finials and bridges always have finials to top off the support towers.

Fortress Kit


This Kit Includes battlements, cap battlements, and finials.  This allows turning a non-descript fort into the real McCoy! Finials make just the right thing to add the finishing touch to towers, castles and monuments.  The tower caps top off towers in case maidens need to let down their hair, and battlements allow archers to decimate unwary varlets below.

Caps & Joists Set


This Kit Includes Cap Battlements, Joists and Japanese Joists.  A good kit for simulating roofs on a variety of structures. Typically, roofs on block buildings are not made by planking over, but rather the outline is suggested by the joists.  The curved joist of the Japanese Joists give a nice oriental flavor.

Super Size Kit


Not to be confused with the Rectangle  Kits (above).  This kit is composed of blocks that are 1-1/2 times as wide as regular blocks but the same thickness and length.  They make good foundations for sturdy buildings.

Road Set


Kids love to integrate Matchbox size cars with their blocks. When your child begins to play with small cars it's time to add some road building materials to a block set.  This kit includes road planks, intersections and 90 degree and 45 degree turns.  The road planks do not lock together, but they can be lofted on blocks to make bridge approaches and the planks are just about the perfect scale for Matchbox size cars and trucks.  This is a very popular booster kit.

Column Set


Some people like columns; some don't.  You can make a lot of stuff without colu8mns, but if you want to make the Lincoln Memorial or the Parthenon, they are a "must have."  We think they're great, and kids like them, but we only include a few in our regular kits.  If you want lots of columns, add this booster to a regular kit. .

Huge Columns Set


Many people have asked about 2-3/4 inch thick columns which used to be found in high quality block kits back in the day.  Unavailable elsewhere, these require very large pieces of lumber - but we've got them.  You can also find these individually in Open Stock.

Triangle Set


Good for schools.  This set includes most kinds of triangles, and encourages familiarity with their names and relationships.  Kid's like the triangles.  They can be used to make roof joists, and children seem to enjoy fitting them together to get a natural lesson in similarity and congruence.

Kids love arches.  This set includes some monster sized arches as well as plenty of roman arches to make aqueducts and round arches for making bridges and buildings. This is easily our best selling Booster kit. You can make all kinds of things with Arches and the large ones are a great favorite with all children.
