A set of connectors for making things from stuff around you
Regular readers will know how much I love cardboard and how I go out of my way to share unusual artists' creations made from recycled materials. 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle' are heard frequently around here. It's something I feel very strongly about and reflects the way we live and educate our children.
I think many of you will be familiar with the makedo sets by now. I first wrote about this Australian company's connectors in 2010 and I am pleased to see them launching new products and going global.
The possibilities of what you can make with makedo are limited only by the materials you find and your imagination. How wonderful! Dig out some boxes, scraps of fabric and bits of plastic and make something - Invent, create and play, over and over again!
What do you think? Would your kids have fun with a Kit For One and a Find&Make Robot? I know for a fact that my youngest son Miles would be over the moon. The folks at makedo would also be delighted to hear your ideas and see your creations. It's all about sharing, inspiring and having fun, isn't it?
So, if you would like a chance to win this Makedo Freeplay and Find&Make Prize Pack (open to international readers):
1) Leave me a comment below (make sure to leave me an email address)
2) Spread the news via twitter, facebook or any other means and I'll pop two names in the hat (make sure you let me know).

I will announce the winner the same evening.
