I know the news is a little late (ok, so it was last year, bite me!), but the good people at the National Toy Hall of Fame have put the cardboard box in its rightful place as one of the greatest. toys. ever.
I have many fond memories of space battles and pirate expeditions and various other box-ian endeavours undertaken with good ole cast-off cardboard. Even today with computers and video games aimed younger and younger, you can’t think of a whiz-bang toy that’s going to outshine a kid’s imagination.
