General Information

Sand, chalk, linseed oil: Anker building brick sets.

In 1880, factory owner Friedrich Adolph Richter started producing the legendary Anker building brick sets in the Thuringian town of Rudolstadt. The bricks were made of quartz sand, chalk and linseed oil based on a formula to produce artificial stone, which engineer and aviation pioneer Otto Lilienthal and his brother had discovered in an old construction manual five years previously. Subjected to approximately three tonnes of pressure and supplemented with yellow, red and blue pigments, the now world-famous building bricks with their unique texture, appearance and composition – and memories invoking smell – are still available today in a multitude of shapes and sizes.

Getting creative.

This is a classic toy; indeed, so classic and precious you're almost reluctant to remove the carefully arranged bricks from their wooden case. But we highly recommend you do so because Anker building bricks are virtually indestructible and incredibly inspiring. Be bold, be creative! Allow your imagination and creativity full reign! There is hardly a better way for pre-school children to develop their spatial visualisation and gain a basic understanding of the principles of design and construction. And adults, too, can indulge their creativity and building skills. Made of sand, chalk and linseed oil according to Otto Lilienthal's special formula, Anker bricks can be used to build large, sophisticated structures without adhesives and mortar – whether you're recreating a historical building or want to try your hand at something more modern.


Not suitable for children under 3 years. Choking hazard: contains small parts.
