Modle Play is the brainchild of a Malaysian couple who makes wooden toys to encourage open-ended learning through play. What exactly is open-ended learning? It is a form of learning through activities that is not bound by rules or instructions. There is no right or wrong way to complete the activity. Therefore, open-ended toys can be played in many different ways depending on the child’s imagination. 

Introduce your child to open-ended learning with these four toys from Modle Play! 


Modle Play’s BLOKSS is a product made of pine wood that is safe to play even if it falls on your feet! These cubes are hand sanded and routed one by one to ensure smooth rounded corners to ensure ultimate softness. BLOKSS is then made shiny with a coat of food grade mineral oil which is non-toxic and FDA approved. There are currently three versions of BLOKSS available with are BLOKSS Large, BLOKKS Junior and Individual Blokss


Made of solid plywood, KEPING makes for perfect slats or building boards that can be played so many different ways. It is also lightweight and sanded around the edges, making it safe for your little one to play any time of day. You can also complement KEPING with the BLOKSS collection to build bigger structures. The sky is the limit with these toys – children can build railway tracks, wall partitions, race courses, mazes and more!


KLYMB is Modle Play’s own version of the classic Pikler triangle climbing frame. Pikler triangles help babies and toddlers move, stand and climb. They are suitable for children aged six months to five years old. Babies can use the Pikler triangle to pull themselves up to stand, whereas children aged one to two years old can explore climbing the Pikler triangle. KLYMB has a solid wood finish with a quick folding and locking mechanism. Although the triangle frame is lightweight and portable, KLYMB can withhold weight up to 80kg! 


KIUB makes for a one of a kind obstacle course for your child. It’s manufactured from locally sourced solid wood and can be played indoors and outdoors. The unique design of KIUB with its circles and ladder rungs allow children to have many hours of imaginative play! It can also be flipped the right way up and can used as a table. 


The benefits of open-ended learning are endless! Open-ended learning has the ability to calm down a child and improve their problem-solving and mathematics skills. The toys from Modle Play can also help your children with their imagination, self-expression, creativity and self-esteem.
