Anchor Blocks are high quality sets of building blocks, which are both an educational toy for children and an absorbing hobby for adults. First made in 1880, they are still manufactured in the same town, using the same process.
They are completely safe, being composed of a mixture of quartz sand, chalk and linseed oil and feel, look and are as durable as real stone. The blocks are manufactured in three colours to simulate brick, natural stone and roof slates, giving the finished models a lifelike quality that is impossible to achieve with modern plastic building blocks. Anchor Blocks are hand-finished to an extremely high degree of accuracy, making it possible to build structures of great complexity without the use of any fixings or glue, the weight and texture of the blocks being sufficient to hold the buildings together.
