Make Do


I was snooping around my little neighbourhood toy shop, La Cachette à Malice, yesterday and fell upon an Australian toy company I had never heard of: Make Do. Have you heard of them? I am obsessed. It is just such a simple idea. Make Do are reusable connectors, with which you can build anything you want out of boxes, paper, egg cartons or anything else you have in your recycle box. You can either get kits with only the connectors in them or kits to help you build a doll house or a car. Seriously, why did no one think of this before?

You can check out the Make Do video here.

I have my eye on this for a long time now and I think I’m getting one – for me of course, my daughter is too young ;)
