Mini Materials, A Line of Construction Material Miniatures you Didn’t Know you Needed #makereducation
Check out Mini Materials – a line of miniatures made from real life construction materials. Not only do the products look super cute, we imagine they are a real treat to build with as well as a convenient teaching tool.
Mini Materials is the leading supplier of miniature cinder blocks and pallets in the world. Our goal is to bring the love of building into the comfort and convenience of your own home. You can build for fun or use our blocks to generate your next big idea!
Our miniature cement blocks are scaled following the classic 1/12 ratio used for modeling. You can accurately turn your models into real life buildings.
