Did you know the cardboard box has been inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame?
Kids love their boxes! Gift them this starter toolbox of Makedo to take that love of making and play into another realm of imagination. This is pure, no-tech (but tech-friendly)* fun for girls and boys.
Simple and safe, cardboard construction has never been this easy. Anything is possible from a gnome to a knight, a critter to a castle as the happy makers up-cycle, up-skill, problem solve and develop critical 21st century thinking skills.
* incorporate other tech maker products to add movement and light to your creations
BRING IMAGINATION TO LIFE: with Makedo’s reusable cardboard construction TOOLBOX, one to two kids aged 4+ can build anything they imagine.
VERSATILE AND STRONG: Cardboard is a readily available, free and unlimited building block that can be folded, sawed and hole-punched while maintaining its durability. Better still, it can be reused and recycled.
CREATING IS SIMPLE: Punch a hole through cardboard using the SAFE-SAW, place the SCRU over the socket of the SCRU-DRIVER, and after a few quick turns your cardboard creation will begin to form.
OPEN-ENDED PLAY: With the pride of independent making, Makedo creations then open the door to imaginative play where the child is the protagonist in a hack-able world of their own making.
STEM LEARNING: The awesomeness of Makedo is that children learn by doing, creating, experimenting, failing and maybe succeeding but that's not essential. Ideal for collaborative creative environments such as classrooms, maker spaces, museums and of course homes.
