In my experience with tykes and toddlers I've learned that they have far more interest in the wrapping, bags and boxes their gifts come in than they do the gift itself. Which is precisely why I thought the Tooko Cardboard House by Jansen + Co was genius! It is...
1. Easily assembled (you don't need a degree in engineering to open the box or put it together!).
2. Perfectly sized for a pint sized homeowner.
3. Encourages the artist/designer in a child as they can decorate it themselves.
I was just saying the other day how so many toys have taken the imagination out of play. It is refreshing to see something so brilliantly simple which stimulates a kid's imagination and creativity!
