Kids in Malawi make toys from junk

MAKE reader Mike points us to this Inhabitots article about Avik Maitra, a Columbia University graduate doing a research fellowship in Malawi. Malawi kids have been making some very cool toys out of found items; Avik is working on designing more toys that the children can make out of local materials and factory byproducts – let him know if you’re nearby and have usable leftovers!
