They say that the simplest ideas are usually the best ones and in Quadro, there appears to be a fine example of this. So many children’s toys are age specific and are either mothballed or thrown away after a period of time but Quadro evolves as a child develops and grows. The accepted construction toys such as Lego and FischerTechnik are limited and designed to be played with. Quadro adds an extra dimension by allowing children to firstly play with it but then to play on it.
Developed by Hubert Ruther and his wife, Doris, in the late 1970’s, Quadro is designed for both indoor and outdoor play. The initial system contained only 12 basic elements and became the first ever giant construction system. Successful testing was carried out in German kindergartens and a safety certificate awarded, before the official launch at the Nurmburg Toy Fair in 1979.
Early offerings consisted of a number of tubes, connectors and panels that allowed children to play, with their parents, at firstly building the design and then using it, either in the house or outside in the garden, to develop their imagination and motor skills.
From baby to teenager Quadro simply grows with each model and each kit. All Quadro kits can be combined with each other so you can create your own private playground designed for you individual wishes and needs!
In addition to its high play value Quadro also stands out with its high educational value: QUADRO enhances creativity, refines motor skills and the imagination of children.
Development in both parts and kits has lead Quadro to pick up a number of awards around the world. The German Design Centre awarded Quadro a Gold Medal for good design with others coming from Japan and the USA.
Quadro construction kits grow with the children. With Quadro you are not confined to a few designs:
You can work with your ideas and create new models according to your wishes again and again. There are no limits with Quadro from Wendy house to pool, a tree house or a fort with a slide – with Quadro everything is possible.
Quadroplay is broken down into five main sections. My First Quadro, Starter, Basic, Junior and Universal. Quadro’s web site gives a full listing of all the designs that can be made from each section and provides diagrams and construction details. With Quadro you can build, climb, drive, slide and splash all year round!
Parts lists are also available with accessories to develop the basic systems so that it can grow as children grow. Each kit has many variations so building and rebuilding will keep children’s imagination stimulated and enthralled with hours of fun.
Quadroplay offers the chance for parents to spend quality time with their children, something that is vital as they grow. Most children need interaction with parents far more than they do toys and pastimes and with Quadroplay they get both. A helping hand to read the instructions or a literal hand or two to help with the build means that children experience twice as much fun when Mum and Dad help out.
