"Kizuki no Ki" are building blocks that allows you to visually "feel" the amount of things such as size and weight. 

In color science, it is said that brighter colors are lighter and darker colors are heavier. In addition, building blocks are toys that allow you to experience the amount of things such as size and weight by holding and stacking them. "Kizuki no Ki" is a product that applies this idea of ​​color science to building blocks.

Lighter (smaller) ones are brighter, heavier (larger) ones are darker, and the body color is painted in gradation, and the size and weight. You can also visually feel the difference. The gradation of similar colors is also beautiful, and you can decorate the stacked items as they are as an interior. 

There are two types of lineup, the quadrangular blue-green "PIXEL" and the triangular orange "HOUSE", and the same base scale is used for both so that they can be played in combination. So, the larger the size, the heavier the weight.

These are not your average building blocks. 

PIXEL

Building blocks in general are toys that are cut into basic shapes such as cubes, rectangular parallelepipeds, and cylinders from wood, etc., and are simply stacked, lined up, broken, or created and played as if they were something.
As the word says, "PIXEL" is a simple building block that is constructed with a cube as one smallest unit. It is a building block toy with a completely new concept that attempts to provide children who play building blocks with a simple sense of understanding of numbers while simply providing basic play as building blocks.

The shape and color, which are the major features of the building block "PIXEL" in appearance, are constructed and designed based on such attempts. The cube that represents the smallest unit 1 is the smallest piece and is colored in the lightest color. The rectangular parallelepiped representing 2 is colored a little darker, and as the number progresses to 3, 4, 5, the darker the coloring is applied.
That's right, it sensuously expresses that "the more the number, the darker the color and the heavier it is."
In addition, the pieces reproduce that there are various shapes even if the number is the same. For example, even if the number (color) is 3, some are rectangular parallelepipeds and some are L-shaped, so that you can intuitively understand.
"PIXEL" is designed with the hope that it will expand the range of children's play and foster intellectual curiosity and creativity.

Kokuyo No Ehon started in 2008 with a mission to create items that enable "Parent-Child Communication" and "Creative Development". Part of their line up are the Make Faces series by Tupera Tupera (which has been published for overseas by Chronicle), which we have in our Misc-store range since 2018. 

About Kokuyo

Founded in 1905, Kokuyo soon becoming the industry leader in paper products (from account books to letter paper, forms and notebooks).

In 1960 Kokuyo has ventured into a transition “from paper to metal”, producing their first filing cabinet. With the economy of that day and age (increasing complexity of administration x economic growth), there was a growing demand for know-how (filing systems) and office supplies (paper products) to manage the ever-mounting pile of paperwork effectively.

The Think of Things selection is true to its heritage, but also constantly thinking and moving forward. Other items we carry include their famed Campus notebooks and some of their contest to market entries from their Kokuyo Design Award, such as the beetle tip marker and the Kadokeshi Eraser.

Check out Kokuyo online or to see Kokuyo in person, please visit our store in Amsterdam.

Misc Store supports
climate change solutions &
plants a tree for every order

Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like. That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.

Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.
A selection of these climate projects are shown here.
