Playful Factory: 15 Crazy Cool Cardboard Products


Cardboard is a fun material for building pretty much anything. Because it is so versatile, toys are not the only thing made using cardboard. Below I have shared 15 of my favorite crazy cool things made with cardboard.

If you find any cool products made form cardboard please post them as a comment. We can use our collection of products as inspiration for the cardboard forts we are going to be designing later this week.
