Newest obsession: toys made from cardboard. Because they’re simple, beautiful, storable and disposable. Recyclable, even!

Never one to do things by halves, I have found ALL OF THE cardboard toys on the internet, to buy and to DIY. Take a look at my Pinterest board. if I’ve convinced you as much as I’ve convinced myself. If I sound like a cardboard raving madwoman, feel free to just move along…
