Makedo’s Find & Make Shop invites children to create a Shop using Makedo reusable connectors and packaging found in the home. The product has been praised for its ability to teach children about upcycling and reuse in a playful way.

Makedo’s Inventor and Founder Paul Justin, commented: "Through play with Makedo Find & Make Shop children learn to literally make-do with what they have in their home – and be entertained in the process.

“They gain satisfaction from the process of building their own shop. The enjoyment continues when they play in it in the weeks, days and months thereafter."

"Makedo’s connectors are reusable so children can pull their creation apart and build a different shop the next time around."

Makedo’s Find & Make Shop includes Makedo’s Safe-saw for cutting and punching through materials safely; Re-clips and Lock-hinges for connecting, themed decorative stickers to bring the Shop to life, step-by-step instructions and a gorgeous inspiration poster. It retails for £11.99.
