These brightly colored toys are made using the actual cardboard packaging that the toy bits and pieces are shipped in. The brainchild of British designer Oscar Diaz, the Tube Toys offer a train, fire engine, tractor and car which are all 100% recyclable and pre-cut for easy assembly.
“All the parts needed to build each vehicle are contained in a standard cardboard tube, which doubles as the packaging. The tubes have slots and holes to place the wheel axes and other components. A single stripe of paper displaying all the information necessaries for the shop (brand, product name/description and barcode) is the only bit that will be discarded after purchase,” explains the designer.
