sometimes kids really do love the box more than the toy, huh? well, enter box play for kids. uber creative friends of ours have turned that notion into a hip & modern idea. they’ve designed eco-friendly stickers that turn standard size boxes and cardboard things that parents have around their home – like toilet paper rolls, milk & egg cartons, cereal & macaroni and cheese boxes, tissue & shoe boxes – into toys. ah-mazing!
i just bought a bunch of sticker kits for my niece jayden. i think my personal favorites are the tissue box turned lucky kitty coin bank (too cute) and the “garage” egg carton to hold little boys toy cars (great idea). a lot of them incorporate learning letters, colors & numbers, too. check them out at boxplayforkids.com. oh, and look at the press. even DailyCandy thinks they rule! totally great stocking stuffers… just sayin’.
