If They Can Dream It, They Can Build It

Imagine a fort shaped like a rocket ship. Or a submarine. Or even an octopus. Those forts and more are in reach of kids everywhere with Fort Boards, the kit that creates forts up to 20 feet large in absolutely any shape.

Founder August Graube grew up building forts in Oregon, and later translated that love for building into an education in design and engineering. His desire to foster that same sense of adventure and imagination in other kids led to the creation of Fort Boards.

Easy to build and take apart, Fort Boards teach basic principles of mathematics, engineering, and spatial awareness while stimulating STEM and STEAM learning in ways that are anything but boring. Reinforced and made for years of active play, they’re intended for use both inside and out, and rinse off easily.

Kids ages five and up will love the eye-catching primary colors, but optional design cards are also available to make the outside of their forts look like wood, stone, or metal. They even flip over so little ones can create their very own customizable designs.

It’s no mystery why Fort Boards have raked in praise and awards, including the Microsoft Grand Prize. Honestly, we wouldn’t mind a lazy afternoon of fort building in the backyard (plus a glass or two of rosé).
