If your children enjoy building things you might be interested in a new gadget that has been created called StrawBees. StrawBees has been designed to help your child extend their creativity and imagination using just simple straws or unwanted cardboard boxes together with a handful of StrawBees connectors.
StrawBees are simple connectors that allow children to easily fix boxes together or connect straws to build weird and wonderful creations. Watch the video after the jump to see how easily StrawBees can help a child’s imagination come to life.
“Strawbees is a construction kit based on one simple unit that lets you connect straws to each other. You stick a Strawbee into the ends of a standard quarter inch (6mm) straw to make struts and then connect them with another Strawbee. “
With the Strawbees you can build everything from mathematical shapes like the platonic solids to mechanical birds, claws, or even huge animated snakes.
Just come up with an idea and start building, or simply start building and see where you end up. With the Strawbees you can always modify things as you go, add straws, cut straws, or add new connections to get a stronger, more flexible or bigger construction.”
The StrawBees project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think StrawBees is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help StrawBees become a reality.
