I admit I am a little behind the holiday season with this great product I just stumbled upon, but I am so enchanted with this concept for children’s play and storage structures I could not help myself. Tsuchinoco‘s products certainly go beyond the holiday season and are so lovely, they are sure to spark the imagination and creativity in every child. This line of children’s products has been created by Masahiro Minami Design in Japan. Although the concept of reinforced corrugated fibreboard is not new in and of itself, this is a very functional design. They have taken the concept to the extent of developing outdoor playground equipment. The cardboard used for the products is not your normal corragated cardboard and it does not contain petroleum products or result in deforestation. It can also be easily recycled at the end of its life unlike many other plastic toys. Currently items can be purchased via the internet from here, but hopefully these and other similar environmentally sensitive items will become increasingly available at a store near you. We determine demand in the market by where we choose to put our dollars and this kind of inspirational design stands to benefit our children and future generations in many different ways.
