Card-based construction set for imaginative builders.
Watch video for: Skallops
Skallops are semi-circular discs that allow you to create amazing structures from regular playing cards.
Connect cards in seemingly endless configurations using the thirteen laser-cut slots in each of the birch plywood discs. Enhance your designs by joining the connectors to one another using the notch in the bottom of each disc.
With Skallops, you can build incredibly strong geometric structures or bend, crease, and cut the cards to assemble flexible and curved creations. For an extra-personal touch, substitute the playing cards with photos or business cards!
Combine multiple sets for truly impressive designs. Each set of Skallops includes a pack of playing cards and 52 wooden connectors. Please note that Skallops are compatible with any standard playing card.

Playing cards are now your building block of choice!
Building with Skallops is a unique experience. The semi-circular Skallops allow you to connect regular playing cards together to create extraordinary structures.
What you can create with Skallops is far more varied (and sturdy!) than a flimsy "house of cards".
Skallop connectors fuel endless creativity
Each Skallop is a flat, semi-circular plywood disc with slots laser-cut every fifteen degrees.
The slots snugly hold the playing cards and allow you to create different shapes with the same pieces by simply changing the slot used. You can also connect multiple Skallops together at any angle via the notches in their bases.
Versatility = The DNA of Skallops
The type of structures you can create with Skallops is seemingly endless.
The connectors make it possible to create rigid and strong shapes, but the flexible nature of playing cards also allows for curved and flowing designs.
Morph simple playing cards into amazing structures
With Skallops, you can transform regular playing cards into a platform capable of supporting an adult... wearing shoes and jeans.
Compatible with any standard playing cards
The Skallop connector is compatible with any standard playing card. Using inexpensive cards that can be bent, creased, and cut was a stroke of genius by the creators of Skallops. It allows you to create amazing shapes without spending a bundle!
