Just find a box and Box Props makes it perfectly simple to transform it into an object of play.
New from Makedo, champions of self-directed play, comes the exciting Box Props range that lets you turn any box into an object of play.
Makedo is a reusable, ecofriendly connector system that injects new life into materials that would otherwise just be thrown away. With the funky Props and child-safe “Scrus”, get crazy and creative as you turn cardboard boxes into works of art.
The Scru, new to the Box Props range, is the first child-friendly cardboard screw. Made from strong polypropylene, the Scrus are designed for small hands and twist easily into cardboard. Props come ready to use (cut out and illustrated), so all you need to do is grab some wax crayons and colour them in! Made from strong, flexible polypropylene, the colour is able to be washed off so you can use the Props over and over. Tabs and holes make it easy to attach the Props to a box using the Scrus.
From an old cardboard box, create a plane that can fly high in the sky, complete with wings, a pilot’s dashboard and lights.
Makedo is designed to be as simple or complex as you like – it entirely depends on the skill level of the user. When you’re finished playing with the Box Prop, simply pull it apart to reuse the pieces over and over. A great product for promoting self-directed play and imagination, the only limit is how creative you can be!
