What is makedo?
Makedo needs little introduction; find some cardboard, grab some Makedo tools and get started. It's as easy as that.
Children learn by doing, creating, experimenting, failing and maybe succeeding but that's not essential. This opens the door to imaginative play where the child is the protagonist in a hackable world of their own making.
Find: Makedo is the most open-ended toy construction system ever because the reusable tools work with cardboard; a universally available, free and unlimited building block.
Make: Designed for girls and boys, young and old, individuals and groups of all skill levels. With Makedo you can make anything imaginable of any size from a flower to a fort, a mask to a maze.
Play: Makedo creations set the stage for immersive, creative and open-ended play where the child is the protagonist in a hackable world of their own making.
Learn: Makedo is a catalyst for critical thinking because it fosters the natural inclination of the child to learn by doing.
Inspire: Join the global community of makers to inspire and be inspired.
