Poster underlying CaDA Bricks stregths: inovative, authentic, affordable, high quality

Within only a few years, CaDA Bricks has grown from a small start-up to one of the largest brick toy manufacturers in China with plenty of international recognition.

When it comes to construction bricks, several companies have dominated the market for decades. However; while these brands have focused on licensing deals to drive engagement from fans, they have not concentrated on new innovations surrounding play. At CaDA, our goal is to not only produce high quality sets, but to also push the limits of the creative experience.

From our initial start, with only two employees and a handful of molding machines, CaDA Bricks has seen exponential growth. Our new, state-of-the-art facility, covers over 25,000 square meters and contains over 250 molding machines, which produce nearly 150 different sets and employ over 500 people. With international recognition and success in Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Korea, Vietnam, Japan, the Netherlands, and Austria, the CaDA brand has become synonymous with quality and innovation.

The key to our success and rapid growth is our dual focus on both the creative play experience and the production quality. We have made strategic expansions in both our Research & Development and engineering teams, allowing us to create unique, innovative sets that stand the test of time. Curious to learn more about what makes CaDA different? Read on!

Build, re-build and experiment

With our play-focused mentality, our goal has always been to maximize the creative experience. For example, while other companies separate motorized sets from static brick sets, we provide the optionto do both! Most of our models come with optional electronic add-ons that allow kids and adults to expand their stationary builds in just a few minutes! But that’s not all…

CaDA Bricks also provides kit upgrades, extending the play experience beyond the initial build. Many of our sets include additional pieces and instructions to the builder can create their own look. An example can be seen below, with our Japanese Manga Initial D Set, available now!

Another great example of our ‘Build, Re-Build, and Experiment’ philosophy is our ‘Four Season Tree House’. Instead of just providing one set of bricks, we expanded the build to include enough pieces to represent each season. Kids and adults can easily swap the different bricks to create unique and dynamic appearances that reflect their environment!

Purposeful Licensing

As CaDA’s international presence has grown, we have engaged in strategic partnerships with well-known brands to transform their cars and vehicles into brick toy sets!

In 2020, we released our very first licensed set, the iconic Mazda RX7. After an incredible amount of success and record sales, we quickly developed licensing agreements with Humvee, Suzuki, Citroen, and many others!

We look forward to plenty of additional licensed sets in the future, and can’t wait to bring even more iconic vehicles to life as brick sets!

Play Innovation

To avoid stagnant and bland play, we constantly look for innovation opportunities, starting from the most elemental components. Working with our R&D team as well as experienced MOC designers, we developed the ‘Cross Beam’. This versatile piece allows for endless construction possibilities. Watch the video below to learn more!

We also re-engineered the brick separator. Frustrated with the tedious process of taking apart technic-style builds, we developed a new and improved brick separator that features a wider grip, a textured lever, and more sturdy pin and axle removers.

Beyond Plastic

While we believe in the ingenuity and timelessness of classic building sets, we also recognize the opportunity for new materials. On several of our sets, we have introduced metal U-joints, and carbon fiber axles.

Small and Mighty

Balancing size with complexity can be a difficult task, especially when introducing electronics. One of CaDA’s most recent innovations is our micro motor. This component is the smallest of its kind, weighing in at only 12 grams and taking up only a small amount of space. However; don’t let its size deceive you. This micro motor packs a punch!

Why not motorize your favorite small scale cars with the new micro servo coming this Autumn from CaDA Bricks? Imagine all the possibilities!

Mobile App

The CaDA Go digital app is loaded with tons of features that let you easily control and manipulate your builds. You can choose from a variety of interfaces, ranging from RC controllers, path control, and even gyroscopic control. The app also features an intuitive drag-and-drop system that allows you to create complicated movements, sounds, or light with ease.

Working with the Experts

CaDA has been constantly impressed with the custom creations fans are able to make with our builds. To further encourage this creativity, we actively seek out the best MOC builders and produce their unique builds. The CaDA Master line is completely based on fan builds, and has seen incredible success! Our sets have been designed by iconic MOC designers such as Bruno J., Eric Trax, and JK Brickworks. After only a few years, we have brought over 10 MOC designs to life, with plans to develop many more!

CaDA for Kids

While a good amount of our sets are focused on the teen and adult segment, we also produce several amazing lines for the younger builders among us. Our CaDA Kids line is specifically made for children to encourage curiosity and learning through play.

We also have an incredibly innovating newline, CaDA Elements, coming soon in Spring 2022, which will allow kids to build beyond the brick. More coming soon!

After-Sales Service

One of the most frustrating brick fans experience is a missing piece without which their build can not be finished. If you have this problem, don't panic! We won't let you down as we offer a free after-sales service so there's no need to worry!

CaDA Bricks does not stop here!

As we’ve mentioned before, the core idea behind our business model is improving the play experience. We pride ourselves on our out-of-the-box thinking and our commitment to innovation, and so far, the feedback we have received from our fans has re-affirmed our approach.

We encourage you to pick up one of our sets, try it out, and give us your honest feedback. We hope you will join thousands of others in supporting CaDA, and look forward to sharing the next steps of our journey with you!
