Furniture Kids Can Draw On

Justin Farr and Jake Disraeli’s concept for kids play furniture, The Cardboard Guys, is pretty thrilling for any kid who loves markers: It’s furniture you’re supposed to draw on. It’s cardboard, ships flat, and is easy to assemble; the cardboard pieces lock into place seamlessly, and since there aren’t any screws, nails, or adhesives involved, it’s pretty hard to screw up. The final product is surprisingly sturdy, holding more than 500lbs of weight without collapsing. Once set up, littles can go to town with crayons, markers, paint, glue, and glitter. When they outgrow the pint-sized desk and chair, the whole operation can be recycled curbside. At less than $100, it also makes a pretty great gift.
