Toysmith Eco-Friendly Box Robot Incorporates Packaging into Play

Toysmith Eco-Friendly Box Robot Incorporates Packaging into Play

The options for cardboard box crafts are endless, so why not make toys out of toy packaging? Toysmith’s new Eco-friendly Box Robot does just that. You’ll get parts to make a motor, legs, caps, tubes and a marker for designing a robot using the box that everything came in. We love the idea of re-purposing toy packaging for play, but do you really need another box to play with these parts? Or could you create something magical with boxes and containers you already have at home like Makedo ‘s kits, which allow kids to turn household trash into art using only a tube of little connectors, hinges and other provided parts.
