Buildies are interlocking blocks made from recycled cardboard that can be used to build sturdy constructions.
Buildies are life-size blocks, mortar and roofing made in the USA from recycled cardboard that enable children and adults to build a variety of forts. Developed by product designer Brian Lilly, who is also a professor in the Technology Entrepreneur Center at the University of Illinois, the system of interlocking blocks can be used to create different sturdy constructions.
Studies show that playing with blocks helps children develop their spatial, mathematical and problem-solving skills. As well as having lots of fun while they’re building, they can learn about engineering, physics and architecture.
