Cardstackers (â„˘) 825 Card Building Set
Description: (November 2012)â€•Artist and Guinness World Record Holder for building the Worldâ€™s Tallest and Largest Houses of Freestanding Playing Cardsâ€”all with no tape, no folding, and no glue!â€”Bryan Berg announces his new toy for kids age 8 and up: The Cardstackers(â„˘) boxed set is inspired by Bergâ€™s 15 years of teaching cardstacking to kids around the world, and his quest to make building an amazing house of cards possible and fun for all. â€śWith Cardstackers(â„˘), I wanted a way to offer more children and teens the awesome sense of creativity and accomplishment you get from doing something that seems impossibleâ€”in this case, making a real house of cards," said Berg. The Cardstackers(â„˘) set is also great for teachers as a classroom math or science project.# # The Cardstackers(â„˘) set includes 825 specially engineered playing cards, ideal for building freestanding houses of cards on a grand scale. And, each kit includes 16 of Bergâ€™s patent-pending Cardstarters(â„˘), little devices that work like cardstacking â€śtraining wheelsâ€ť to help kids learn and execute correct card placements for the strongest buildings. The Cardstarters(â„˘) each hold four cards in the correct placementâ€”just how Berg does itâ€”to teach the best way to build a foundation for the first story and beyond. The best part is that Cardstarters(â„˘) still allow kids to create a truly freestanding house of cards, so they can enjoy the ever-anticipated thrill of knocking it all down after a hard dayâ€™s work.
