Multibois, consists of couple of wooden elements, for building a houses. During building, plastic parts like doors & windows could be added too. There are some different building-theme’s sets available. These construction sets were created by the company Charton around 1972.
Although I like to focus more on older -no plastic- type of toys, this one is interesting, since it uses the same wooden construction principle like L’Edifice, so I just had to try this.
I could not find any documentation, besides some ebay advertizements, so if you know more, let me know.

The one pager leaflet comes with step-to-step building instruction of 1 type of farm and some pictures of alternative farm like buildings. You basically start with the interlocking foundations strips. Then adding pillars, small walls, doors & windows and gables. On top of that, an other layer of strips could be placed. Finally the roof could be places, where the wooden pieces are clamped inbetween a special plastic rod.
I’m only owning one box for now. But looking to the pictures, most parts seem to be generic, although a change of color. “Ofcourse” every building type has it’s onw special parts too.
Some system characteristics
Here a short list of some system characteristics and how it’s retrofitted into the virtual LeoCAD library:
Crosssection: 6×20 [mm]
|Single color pieces|
|Pannels||Wood & Plastic||Single color pieces|
|Bay size||60 [mm]||60 [mm]|
|Draw line every X studs||3|
|Snap XY||8 [mm] (1 Flat)|
|Snap Z||1 [mm] (1/20 Stud)|

Building in LeoCAD
An other nice toy! Both building in real life and virtual is fun. I also like the mix of different matials used, all making use of the material strengths, while the plastic parts are not overwelming.
