We all know kids love to play with the box more than the toy!
Help them ditch the tangle of tape and gift them this starter toolbox of Makedo to take their play into another realm of imagination. This is pure, no-tech, unadulterated (unless you want to get involved!) fun for girls and boys. Simple and safe, cardboard construction has never been this easy. Anything is possible from a flower to a fort, a mask to a maze. Then watch the happy makers play, play, play as they learn to up-cycle and develop critical 21st century thinking skills. This kit includes a safe, flexible plastic cardboard saw for younger makers.

Strawbees is a construction kit based on one simple unit that lets you connect straws to each other. You stick a Strawbee into the ends of a standard quarter inch (6mm) straw to make struts and then connect them with another Strawbee. It?s a wonderful system for trial and error construction and allows you to do a lot of things impossible with other systems.
With Strawbees you can build everything from mathematical shapes like the platonic solids to mechanical birds, claws, or even huge animated snakes. Just come up with an idea and start building, or simply start building and see where you end up. With Strawbees you can always modify things as you go, add straws, cut straws, or add new connections to get a stronger, more flexible or bigger construction.
Besides connecting straws Strawbees can be used to connect cardboard. This means you can build large scale mechanical objects from cardboard with the same pieces you use for the straws.
