I have already made a lot of this educative toy. It’s called the roman bridge and in Europe, it’s popular in preschools. You need to use the semi-circle jig to do the arc part, then you remove the jig by simply pulling out the wedge. The GIF animation below explains it. I also made a one-page manual and I have sold all of them so I need to do some more. Thanks for looking.

(when your kid will be a famous seventy-year-old engineer, I guess he will still think of this wooden bridge nostalgically)

Cool. I’ve always been intrigued by how the keystone in an arch holds everything together.

Would you be willing to share dimentions on this? I have a little builder running around who would love this.

Those blocks are great, Any toy that is educational and doesn’t include a TV is great.

Have your say...
