Looking for something for the little engineer in your life? The Makedo Scru Add-On pack is a perfect complement to the Makedo Toolkit – a great introduction to the land of Makedo. Enter into the world of playful cardboard construction and build small creations with these reusable parts. Rocket ships, cars, dinosaurs, a knight in cardboard armor – build whatever you can imagine with these handy little tools.
Start off by grabbing a base Makedo Toolkit. Then, add these re-usable plastic screws to expand your possibilities. Simply punch a hole through the material using the bonus “mini-tool,” insert the a “scru” into the socket on the mini-tool, and then with a few quick turns the cardboard will be securely joined. Grab some cardboard and get making!
