Paperpod Cardboard Creation

Ecotot: Paperpod Cardboard Creations

My great-grandfather used to say that the best gift you can give a child is a cardboard box. He would marvel at the myriad ways a lil one could use the box — climbing in and out, coloring it, turning it into a house, and more.

Maybe that's what the folks at Paperpod Cardboard Creations had in mind when they began crafting furniture and toys out of recycled cardboard. The British company's sturdy, lightweight, and environmentally-friendly creations include rocket ships ($77), forts ($39), and teepees ($80) that are easy to assemble and fold flat for storage. The blank canvas created by the cardboard also gives your tot the opportunity to showcase his creativity, as paint, marker, crayons, stickers, and glue can all be used for decorating.

Guaranteed to provide hours of uninterrupted play, the products can be purchased in the US at Cardboarddesign.

40-80 bucks for a cardboard box? They must be making a killing (if they convince anyone to buy them) ... I wish I'd have thought of it!

I really want to try to make one of these! Last week I imagined one day having a house with a basement and building a big castle in one corner out of empty tissue boxes covered in nice wrapping paper.

when i was little i had a play store that was made from cardboard with store-ish drawing on it. i played and played in it - the power of imagination. however, it had to be thrown away when my cousin visited and peed in the corner. i guess he imagined a bathroom. yuck!

Oh, these are so cute! And environmentally friendly! And creativity inspiring! I just wish they didn't cost so much... Then again, I couldn't make these on my own.
