PICK ‘N’ MIX COMPONENTS: TAKE YOUR MODELS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

We’ve just added all of our new components to our online store and made our entire range of individual components more affordable than ever before. We’ve seen some incredible Arckit designs recently – from the advanced structures created by architecture student Ricky Fairhurst to the innovative use of components (and the first ever octagonal design we’ve seen) by a budding young architect in this Arckit review. We are seriously impressed by the inventive and imaginative use of Arckit components, and the virtually unlimited ways that designers express themselves through their models. The new Arckit sets have been such a success...

ARCKIT GETS THUMBS UP FROM JASON BRADBURY

ARCKIT GETS THUMBS UP FROM JASON BRADBURY

Guess who came to visit the Arckit stand at the London Toy Fair 2017? None other than Jason Bradbury, the tech and gadget guru best known for presenting the TV programme, The Gadget Show. Jason came to check out our stand and find out what the buzz was about. We soon sparked up a conversation about Arckit. He was friendly, enthusiastic and immediately taken by the idea of a freeform architectural model system. Searching for reference points, he described Arckit as being like a middle ground between toys like Lego Architecture and actual buildings, allowing people of all ages (including...

NEXT TIME ON DISNEY’S THE LODGE…ARCKIT!

NEXT TIME ON DISNEY’S THE LODGE…ARCKIT!

Arckit was on Disney’s new TV show, The Lodge! We were surprised when we spotted a complete Arckit town in the last two episodes of season one. It looks like the designers have used several boxes of Arckit to create this stunning model community complete with Arckitexture graphics. We’re excited to see Arckit on such a popular show and we can’t wait to see how the plot unfolds. The musical-teen drama series has been a huge hit for Disney. It was broadcast in over 100 countries and is the highest rated show on The Disney Channel in over four years....

THE BEST GENDER-NEUTRAL GIFTS FOR CHILDREN

THE BEST GENDER-NEUTRAL GIFTS FOR CHILDREN

We were excited to read The Telegraph’s recent article featuring Arckit in their list of 12 brilliant, gender-neutral gifts for children this Christmas! Arckit GO Colours, our award-winning architectural model building set, was mentioned alongside other gender-neutral toys such as traditional guardsmen skittles by Traidcraft, a wooden set by Primo that teaches young children how to code, a ‘make your own dinosaur’ kit from Gifts For Little Ones, and the K’Nex ferris wheel building set at Smyths Toys. It’s encouraging to see that more parents are steering clear of stereotypical ‘pink and blue’ gender-biased toys this year in favour of...
