Build Up to Set Sail

Building a World Cup sailboat takes a lot of money. Not to mention amazing carpentry skills and a dry dock. But budding nautical designers can make their own flagships with this flexible kit. Seafaring fun for both kids and STEAM classroom crews, it invites junior makers to build boats and mini sailors with colorful, 3D-printed clips that connect recycled cardboard sections. And the inventive play doesn't end there! The set is modular, so builders can construct anything they can imagine in the Seven Flat Seas by adding their own custom pieces and reusing the durable clips. Designed by Ayana and Ethan Klein. Includes 40 pieces. Ages 4 and up. Made in Connecticut.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

“When we went to a restaurant or traveled, my mom packed playdough and crayons, not an iPad. - Ayana Klein”

When Ayana and Ethan Klein were kids, they were encouraged to make each other’s holiday gifts rather than buy them. Cardboard was their go-to raw material for creating castles and parking garages, piggy banks and treasure chests. Ethan first encountered Computer-Aided Design in his middle school maker space (shouldn’t every middle school have one?) and realized his talent for 3D creations. As adults developing new products, 3D printing provided a great tool for playing around with ideas. Making colorful clips that connect recycled cardboard pieces was a natural idea drawn from their childhood. Ethan and Ayana’s system lets children expand their creativity, and also introduces the idea of environmental responsibility through creative recycling.
