Contest: Makedo and Threadless

Starting this week, Threadless will be sending out Makedo toy sets in random orders placed by its community of 2.2 million artists and fans and asking them to create something fun, unique, weird—they decide. Described as the “Worlds Best Toy” by Wired magazine, Makedo is a reusable connector system that enables people to build and create using found or reclaimed materials.  An empty juice container, moving box or shoebox can easily be transformed into an airplane, car or boat. Don’t like how it turns out? No problem. The parts, including a mini punch tool, re-clips and lock hinges, are reusable and can be pulled apart to create something new.

Once the imaginative design is created, artists are encouraged to take a photo and upload it to Threadless will be choosing a weekly winner and a grand prize winner. Winners receive:

About Makedo
Recognizing that kids learn best when given the tools to find the answer – rather than the answer itself – Makedo helps kids develop creative thinking. We celebrate imagination, making and open-ended play at its purest and most fun. Makedo’s project kits encourage kids to transform the stuff around them -- such as cardboard, plastic and packaging - into play objects and let their imaginations and creativity run free.
