  • Ankerstein at Nuremberg Toy Fair 2019

    Ankerstein Baukasten (Anchor Stone building sets) exhibited at the Nuremberg Spielewarenmesse (Toy Fair) again this year with a booth in the "Made in Germany" section of Hall 3A. For Anchor Stone, production continues in the same city where the company started in the 1880s - Rudolstadt, Germany. For the 2019 Fair, the new Gropius set was featured in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus movement. And some children's sets are now packaged in wooden boxes.
  • A Better Toy Building Block

    The 1880 US patent for Anchor Stones states "the object is to produce toy building blocks which will always retain their shape and color, will not be dangerous to children, and will, by reason of their weight, better retain their position than if made of wood as usual." The result became Richter's Anchor Stone Building Sets (Richter's Anker-Steinbaukasten.) Stability, durability and natural all combine to make Anchor Stone building blocks the best blocks for children. But, you don't have to let the children have all the fun, because these blocks are also great for adults!
