Makedo needs little introduction; find some cardboard, grab some Makedo tools and get started.
Makedo is a cardboard construction system for 21st century thinking, making and play. Developed by designer Paul Justin in Melbourne, Makedo has been hailed as the “Best Toy Ever” by Wired magazine!
The awesomeness of Makedo is that children learn by doing, creating, experimenting, failing and maybe succeeding, but that's not essential. The creations then open the door to imaginative play where the child is protagonist in a hack-able world of their own making. Tested from 3yrs +, Makedo is enjoyed by anyone from 4 years to 99 years!
The range features two main play sets, the Toolkit 030 and the group play focused Toolset 360, further to this there are six add-on packs featuring extra parts and tools. Retail pricing starts from £8.99.
littleCONCEPTS will be launching the product at Top Drawer in London on stand S38 and are looking forward introducing their customer base to this innovative product and working with new retailers, to bring the product to new consumers around the UK and Ireland.
littleCONCEPTS co-founder, Luke de la Mare is delighted to be working with the innovative brand: “We love the sustainability ethos that comes from the find, re-use and recycle element of utilising discarded cardboard to become a universally available, free and unlimited building block. We also believe a big focus in the education at the moment is STEM learning and we are seeing more parents looking for a STEM related product to use at home….Makedo fits that bill!”
