THE TOOLS

Makedo is custom designed to make cardboard construction easy for everyone.

 

 

CARDBOARD

The perfect material for creative construction.

 

Cardboard is everywhere! It’s in your recycling bin, protecting your fruit and veg from farm to table and helping you move house. Why, it probably found itself wrapped around your last birthday gift! Happy birthday, in case we missed it.

Cardboard has some incredible qualities that make it pretty much perfect for making stuff. In fact, no other material is as strong that can also be easily manipulated by the hand of a child. It folds (which makes it even stronger) and cuts and swivels and is seriously durable. Of course when combined with adrenaline-fuelled excitement it could get knocked to bits, but then you just need to recycle what you have used and readily find more. Simple as that.

Where to find good cardboard:

  •  in your home recycling bin
  •  at your local grocer
  •  the hardware store
  •  near the loading bay at most supermarkets
  •  cardboard recycling plants
  •  bicycle and appliance stores - ask the clerk
