Embracing the old-fashioned concepts of creativity and imagination, these stripped-down construction sets get right to the basics of having fun. Each kit is made from a single sheet of earth-friendly, pre-cut cardboard, which can be punched out and easily assembled into a 3-dimensional toy. Inspired by the streamlined forms of Art Deco design, they're designed to inspired endless adventures. The cardboard is completely customizable with markers, paints or any other medium that inspires your child. Whether it's a rainy day, a road trip, or just time for a new creative project, these kits make imaginative fun simple for everyone. Made in Taiwan.

These customizable creations each start out as a single sheet of cardboard, but become 3D toys! How would you decorate these DIY vehicles?

These are a neat idea, but consider them only if they are manufactured in the USA.

I see that some people wish this were made in the U.S.A. But note that this toy is NOT made in China -- it's made in Taiwan, where they have fair labor conditions. Big difference!!! Taiwan makes all kinds of great bike parts, computer parts, etc...

My fourth grade students love building toys like this. A fun project that helps develop valuable manual and cognitive skills and gives a strong sense of satisfaction.
