One of the most imaginative holiday gifts for 2014 has no moving pieces, and doesn’t even need to be plugged into the wall. Actually, it is completely recyclable – and intends to reintroduce the power of imagination to children across the country otherwise glued to iPads and television screens.
These innovative new building sets from Play from Scratch consist of notched pieces – Y’s, O’s and X’s – that can be connected in thousands of ways and attached to stuff around the house (toilet paper tubes, paper towel rolls, cardboard boxes, etc.), inspiring kids to build anything they can imagine. The toys are the first line of patent-pending, sustainable building sets made in the U.S.A. Play from Scratch was also recently named the general division winner of the Minnesota Cup– the largest business planning competition in the country.
