Mr. McGroovy’s Box Rivets are an ingeniously simple invention that allow you to make sturdy cardboard box structures that can hold up to a good bit of abuse. Growing up I really really really liked forts. This takes fort (and pretty much anything else that you’d like to make out of cardboard) building to a new level! These rivets rachet on to each other (it takes 2 for each hole you’d like to reinforce) to create a secure lock that only comes apart when you want it to. Of course, they’re reusable as well.
You could use these rivets for all sorts of things.. mazes, castles, clubhouses, castles… the site has plans for a Pirate Ship, Princess Carriage, Train, Throne, Skyscrapers & Santa’s Sleigh. Really though, the sky’s the limit as far as potential for these things goes. 100 rivets will run you $6.95, and Mr. McGroovy even lets you in on some of the secrets of cardboard box acquisition.. :) The gallery is well worth a look as well.
