Strawbees

Strawbees just made it to the top of our holiday shopping list! These super simple, but super smart, plastic connectors allow kids (and grown-ups!) to build almost anything out of ordinary drinking straws. Check out this awesome video to be truly wowed by a selection of easy-to-build creations. Dubbed the "smart toy" company, this Swedish team aims to encourage learning through play, ultimately spawning a generation of "creative thinkers and collaborative problem solvers." Their online store offers a selection of kits at different sizes, as well as an "Infinite Kit Make Machine," allowing kids to make their own Strawbees out of plastic waste - fun and sustainable! Special rates are also available for educators
