Winning Photos!

A BIG thanks to everyone who participated! We loved seeing everyone's photos this holiday season. It was really hard to pick just 5 winners so we also chose two runners up families that will receive a Action Sorter and Conveyor. Note: Winning families are responsible for covering the shipping of their prize.

Big Smiles - Rokenbok Photo Contest

We’re having our fourth annual Holiday Photo Contest! Five lucky families will win their choice of a Tower of ROK Mania, Monorail Mania Start Set, or ROK Blocks Combo Kit!

One of the Most Amazing Builds Ever!

Justin, an incredibly talented and long-time Rokenboker, sent us this video showcasing his latest build - a "ball contraption."

His ball contraption took several months to design and build. It very cleverly uses a single X2 unit to power the entire machine and rotate the arms that carry the balls to the top.

Bay Area Maker Faire 2014!

150,000 makers gathered at the San Mateo Event Center grounds to partake in the largest show and tell on Earth, Maker Faire. This mind-blowing spectacle included a gigantic 40 foot tall mechanical octopus that spits fire, human-size muffin (and cupcake) cars, a life-size mouse trap game, metal dragon cars, drones, 3D printing, and all things DIY.

Open Source Library

In an effort to promote a true engineering environment, kid*spark has partnered with Rokenbok Education to release an Open Source Library of building parts. The Open Source Library currently boasts over 100 parts that can be freely downloaded, modified, and 3D printed.
