construction guide

M ake your own movable toys from free corrugated cardboard never used before for this purpose.


Corrugated cardboard is a particularly suitable material for children's toys. Discarded as packaging from supermarkets and department stores, it' is available, free of charge, in large quantities and various dimensions.

It is safe, clean and one way of recycling. The construction is easy, quick, needs little space and doesn't dirty.

Younger kids can paint while elder children can help with cutting and assembly. It's a family hobby, both for those who enjoy toy making and eventually children who will then play enthusiastically.

These toys are very solid and long-lasting: the "earth moving vehicles" are for all the kids the greatest! No doubts, they will spend many hours playing with them.
