Create fantastic structures that challenge possibility on playgrounds,vacant lots,in classrooms and your very own backyard.

Build-It! Disks are fabricated in the United States from double-walled cardboard for extra durability and strength (these are not pizza boxes, folks), allowing you to build your very best awe-inspiring structures over and over again. They are made from recycled paper and are 100% recyclable!

The proceeds of each sale of Build-It! Disks helps support TinyWPA, our innovative program that puts youth at the forefront of stimulating community engagement and civic innovation in Philadelphia by empowering them to design and build improvements to the City’s public spaces, schools, and micro-infrastructure.
