Is MODU suited for my kid(s)? Does it develop kids’ physical and creative skills? Is it age-adapting? Long-lasting? Fun?
Which set should I choose?
All our sets are suitable for kids aged 0 - 6. Some of the factors to consider when choosing a set are the number of kids, how many building options you want, etc. For babies and toddlers, our Curiosity Set might be enough to begin with as you have many building options like the rocker, tilter, scooter board, beginners ride-on etc. MODU is designed to offer a lot of possibilities with just a few blocks.
That being said; bigger sets = more blocks = more possibilities! If you have more than one kid, we recommend getting the Dreamer Set or the Explorer Set with an extra set of wheels so you can build more ride-ons. Generally, adding more elements tends to be fun when your kids' grow older and develop their creativity and motor skills. As a modular system, you can mix and match to your heart’s content, expanding your collection according to your family’s needs.
What can I build? Where do I find inspiration?
There is no limit to your imagination, but if you need some assistance, we are here to help you out! Every set comes with an inspiration book containing clear instructions on how to build numerous creations. It also includes suggestions for versatile usages, motor skill benefits, storage options and upkeep.
On our Inspiration Page we’ve collected all the creations from the inspiration books. Sort by age to find inspiration that fits your kid’s individual needs. You can also follow us on Instagram where we regularly post new inspiration and share user content. Show us your creations by using the #moduverse tag and help inspire others!
How do I keep my MODU nice and clean?
The materials we use are very resilient to dirt and marks, but if your toy needs sprucing up, there are several cleaning options:
- Use hot water, mild soap, and a cloth or soft brush
- Pop the toy in the dishwasher. We recommend using a short, energy-saving program ♥ If water gets inside the pegs, let them dry thoroughly on a towel.
- Bring the blocks with you to the shower as a fun bath time activity. They float!
As to the small swirly wheels, it's good to be aware of hair and dust which can accumulate and get stuck over time. If you find that your wheels are not moving as smoothly as usual, it may be time to clean them up. Luckily, we found an awesome guide that has lots of tips and tricks for just that here.
How much weight can MODU withstand? Can adults use it? (fingers crossed)
Our blocks can be used by adults to some extent, but be careful putting too much stress on the wheels and pegs. We recommend using the blocks only. They are great for yoga/training!
Our blocks and swirly wheels are tested up to 50 kg — the foam wheels 30 kg — according to the EN71-1 Directive 2009/48/EC of the European Parliament and the Council on the Safety of Toys. But don’t be afraid to test out your own skills on a balance board.
What's the meaning of life?
What material are the building blocks made of?
The MODU building blocks are made from EPP foam. EPP is very durable and high in quality — perfect for long-lasting play. The material is incredibly resilient against marks and dirt and easy to clean in case of accidental spills. The light weight and soft surface makes the blocks ideal for indoor play (so you don’t have to worry about your beloved wooden floors or extensive noise). And the best part? It is 100% recyclable and free of harmful chemicals. Child- and planet-friendly ♥
What material are the connector pegs made of?
Our connecting pegs are made from 100% recyclable ABS plastic. ABS is a very strong material with an incredibly tough impact resistance, which makes it perfect for building toys for little ones to tumble on. We use non-toxic, food-grade ABS, a commonly used material that is also known from LEGO among other toys.
Where is MODU being produced?
MODU is made in Europe. Our production is located at two carefully selected manufacturing companies in Lyon, France and Odense, Denmark, and we source all our materials locally. Read more about our production here.
