Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Kids crave interactivity. Fancy schmanzy plastic toys might please for a day, but youngsters find more true joy in something they helped create. This cornucopia of cardboard fun spills out easy-to-assemble family fun with packing boxes, packing boxes, egg cartons, toilet paper rolls, and toothpaste containers. Box! contains supply lists, templates, useful colorful photographs, assembly instructions, and tips. Admit it: Who could not love a paper towel tube telescope or an airplane constructed from a cereal box. Editor's recommendation.
