Mini Mad Things ‘Unboxed’ available for preorder

Creative, crafty, kids company Mini Mad Things has revealed plans for a special new project; ‘Unboxed: Adventures in Cardboard’, a beautiful children’s craft activity book all about the creative adventures you can have with cardboard boxes!

You can help be a part of making this project become a reality by supporting the Kickstarter campaign and preordering a copy of ‘Unboxed: Adventures in Cardboard’.

What is Unboxed?

‘Unboxed: Adventures in Cardboard’ is a book about using cardboard boxes to make cool creations that inspire creative play! It’s about using something you already have to inspire new, fun, individual or collaborative ideas that involve initiative and creativity!

In a world of finite resources and growing consumption, Mini Mad Things want to encourage the creative use of simple, recycled materials, like the humble cardboard box, to create play. Encouraging our little ones to re-purpose what they already have is not only great for our planet, it also requires creative thinking to see new possibilities beyond the original purpose, helping our children become the resourceful inventors of the future.
