Educator vs. Designer Products vs. Mindware Products
Our designer collection is available exclusively on kevaplanks.com and includes small-run and unique KEVA products.
Educator sets are designed for use in classrooms, libraries, museums, and other spaces where they'll be used by many people, especially people who are new to building with planks. These spaces need storage and supporting materials that are more durable than products made for use in a home. With these sets, we send laminated cards that can be passed around by a larger group, and include ideas for educators on how to make the most of KEVA in your classroom or makerspace.
The Mindware collection is available on our website or through Mindware.com, an official distributor. These products are perfect gifts and work well in households with kids of any age.
Maple vs. Pine
Educator sets exclusively come with maple planks. Maple is a hardwood that resists finger oils and can stand up to heavy use in classrooms, libraries, and museums. Pine is a softer wood, making pine planks better suited for use in homes.
