@NYC Toy Fair 2009 – Another past favorite, UBERSTIX – they make toys/kits that you need to recycle other things to build. Straws, ice cream sticks, paper clips, water bottles, egg cartons and more. Pictured here is a ship you build and use tossed cups/bottles to make it float, along with other trashed items to build the sail and more. It’s called the Scavenger, nice. They also make ÃœBERARC” – it’s for budding architects, students and engineers – you can construct giant “emerald city” looking structures, unlike other building systems you get real blueprints in a tube. We liked these folks so much that we stock their kits in the Maker Shed!
