No plastic, no glue, just creative STEAM fun

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?

Epic Cereal Box Creations Synopsis

This big colourful book is jam-packed with toy and art ideas and includes a box with 30 of our reusable Magic Corners! This means kids can make amazing things without using messy and wasteful glue or sticky tape. And of course they're maded from Recycled Plastic like all JUNKO.

Young makers will learn how to make over 20 awesome creations like: a dinosaur, dolls’ furniture, crazy cars, a vampire bat, a space helmet, a house, seasonal decorations, paper darts and even a unicorn… It’s so simple just grab a cereal box, a pencil and a pair of scissors...

When they're done playing, just recycle the card and reuse the Magic Corners to make the next creation.

We're a family business and all of us (Pete & Beth and our kids Bella, Hector and Orson) had a hand inventing and making the toys you see. JUNKO is great fun for generations to play and learn together.

About Junko

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.
