Build a Skyscraper

The latest in a series of stylish stackable building card kits for family fun

Everything needed to create an inner-city masterpiece is included: glass, concrete, windows, walls, roofs, and more. The pack contains 64 cards (4 x 2¾") of a variety of graphic designs. Clever paper engineering means cards can be slotted together, building up and out in any direction. Also included is a short booklet with descriptions of the card designs and suggestions of stacking methods. The instructions show how to build a skyscraper, but leave scope for creating imaginative constructions. Renowned illustrator Paul Farrell has designed these cards in a cool, graphic style, turning the image of a skyscraper into a work of art.
