Our family really, really love making things. We invented JUNKO to help kids (and grown-ups!) upcycle their home’s recycling into toys. Hopefully, you’ll agree that there’s no need to buy new toys all the time - it’s way more satisfying and good for our brains to learn to make things ourselves and of course it’s much more eco-friendly too :)
Just like you, we care about the planet, so JUNKO is made from recycled plastic - that way we use less of the earth’s precious natural resources. If we don’t use up old plastic (there’s more of it than you can imagine) it gets buried, burned or finds its way into the sea - each has an environmental cost.
Magic Corners are sturdy, reusable, they cut out the single-use plastics you get with sticky tape or glue - and they join up card better than anything else we’ve seen! When you’re done playing, just take your creation apart and pop it in recycling (so long as you haven’t covered it in paint!)

Take one box – a cereal box for example – and this craft ideas book, and get creating! Thanks to a set of recycled plastic corners just right for joining up card (and neatly contained in a storage compartment) with clear, easy to follow instructions, kids will be able to transform the box into any one of 20 different toys. Once they have got to grips with the easier creations including a dinosaur, a rocket and a fabulous looking car they can challenge themselves with the trickier space helmet or unicorn mask. Like all the best ideas it’s really simple, really effective and likely to be just the start of more creative activity. The JUNKO ethos is all about reuse and being eco-friendly. The Epic Cereal Box Creations is a brilliantly clever concept, turning household waste and packaging into toys: even those plastic corners are made from recycled plastic! Not only is it fun, it’s a great way to build those all-important STEAM skills too. Who needs plastic toys when you can have fun and make your own out of cardboard?
