Recycled Play with YOXO

Disclosure: We were provided a gift card to purchase YOXO sets but were not compensated to post. As always we share what we love and opinions are entirely our own.

We’ve passed by some of these fun packages a couple times while shopping at Target and finally decided to try them out! YOXO‘s “award-winning building sets inspire kids to design and build their own toys using recyclable Y, O, and X-shaped links that connect in numerous ways with everyday household materials like paper towel rolls and cereal boxes. The result: endless hours of play that foster creativity and fuel imagination.”

I love the classroom set they have available too! Once you pick up your own you can even download a free Idea Generator with some new instructions on their site which my 10 year old loves!

Be sure to share your creations using #YOXOtoys on social media – we’ll be sharing ours! Thought you’d like this fun idea for your own kids or as a gift!

  1. It’s great to know that there is something else that can be as inspirational as Lego blocks! I like the concept of recyclable parts! We try to be a green household and I’ll definitely give it a try! Thanks for sharing here!
