The beautiful Il posto dei giochi is an interesting take on cardboard play.
This is an imaginative take on a basic corrugated pressboard sheet. The sheet, transformed by Enzo Mari into a “defensive” wall to protect a place to play has ten different decorative and punched panels of various shapes and decorations. There are yellow circles like the sun, blue waves like the sea, a wall made of red bricks, and kids make up the rules for this play item.
I really like this item, although for the budget minded green parent, I think it best serves as a very good idea. There’s no stopping you and your kids from grabbing a large sheet of cardboard or even wood from the local hardware shop and going nuts with some nice zero-voc paints and design ideas. Excellent inspiration.
