Anker Stones / Anchor Stones by Anker Steinbaukasten are high quality sets of building blocks for children and adults alike. For over 125 years Anker Stones have been manufactured by hand according to a traditional formula. 100% natural materials, consisting of chalk, quartz sand, colour pigments and linseed oil meet the highest of ecological standards. Manufactured in three colors to simulate terra cotta brick, natural sandstone, and the blue slate of European roof tiles, these blocks look and feel like real stone. This gives the finished structures a lifelike quality that is unsurpassed. Anker Stones are hand finished to a high degree of accuracy, making it possible to build very complex structures. The weight and texture of the blocks are sufficient to hold the building together. There is no need for glue or other adhesives.
Building Set #6 is a basic / beginning set including 105 stones. Set #6A is an extension set including 113 additional stones. Each set also comes with a booklet illustrating plans for different structures (the construction plan accompanying Set 6A includes plans which can only be built with this set in conjunction with set #6). Stones are stored in a wooden box with a sliding lid which contains an additional diagram illustrating how to pack the stones back in the box.
Currently, 16 different building sets are manufactured that can be combined according to the traditional Anker extension system. With each extension set, the number and diversity of the stones increase, and thus, also the possibilities to create larger and more multifaceted buildings. The building plans in the extension boxes are designed in a way that enables you to use stones from previous basic boxes.
