kids on roof

Kids On Roof is an innovative Dutch company that makes, among other things, excellent and affordable stuff from recycled cardboard for kids to assemble.


Totem bird mobile Isn't this a beautiful card for a new baby? Yes, it is a mobile now, but it began life as a pop-out card; a really nice idea I think, a card that will last and stay on display even when the others have been stuffed out of sight in a drawer or the bin.

If you are local – ie, in the Netherlands – you could buy direct from their website, where these birds cost 9.90 Euros. However the shipping costs appear to be extortionate (25.00 Euros to the UK!) if you aren't based there. Alternatively, London design store, SCP, sell this design for £11 – or check the extensive Kids on Roof stockist list for a place to buy in your part of the world.

Totem airport This airport, complete with airplanes, pilots and safety car comes in the form of an A4 sheet made, as with the other products here, in recycled cardboard. Pop em out and fly that plane. This set costs 5.50 Euros (again, see local stockists for prices in your area).

People of the world Isn't this colourful crowd of cardboard people lovely?

Direct from the Dutch store, the whole set (of 12) costs 17.50 Euros and they come as 12 15cm x 15cm sheets.


They do various other sweet ranges too, including child-sized cardboard houses (below), horses and rockets.


MobileHome This teeny, tiny house has eight rooms, plus stair-openings and spyholes and an attic. It also comes in white/red, measures 46cm x 23cm x 36cm and costs 14.90 euros.
