The kit makes it possible to create new forms of intercourse between all toys and brings children much more combinatorial possibilities. It opens doors to new creative worlds thank for the advent of low-cost 3D printing.

The Construction kit is designed by F.A.T. Lab and Sy-Lab, it offers a "best of all worlds" approach to play and learning that combines the advantages of each toy system. We selected construction sets for inclusion based on their significant level of market penetration, as well as for the diversity of features they brought to the Kit's collection. Some of the supported construction systems, for example, offer great mechanical strength, or the ability to build at large scales; others offer the means to design kinetic movements; and still others permit the creation of a wide range of crystallographic geometries and symmetries. Using these classic toys as a foundation, the Free Universal Construction Kit offers a "meta-mashup system" ideally provisioned for the creation of transgressive architecture and chimeric readymades. -

All 3D models of The Free Universal Construction Kit are freely available in .STL format from Everyone is encouraged to download the file and 3D-print them with your Makerbot, RepRap, Ultimaker etc 3D printer. Or you can use any available online 3D printing services such as Shapeways or Ponoko to print high precision adapters.
