A Brilliant Solution for those Cardboard Tubes

My son will dive halfway across the room to intercept a toilet paper roll spiraling towards the garbage can.

It’s my telescope! My trumpet!

It’s tunnel for my toys, moooom!

And someone has finally thought of a construction set that uses those garbage-bound toilet paper and paper towel rolls that kids love so much:

The Toobalink Construction Set comes with connectors, couplers, and joiners to turn those cardboard tubes into an elaborate sword, rocket ship, and even a teepee frame. (The starter kit comes with a few tubes to prevent your paper towel stash from being mysteriously unrolled.)

No waste, no complaining, and plenty of independent play. Sounds like the perfect toy to me.

Buy the Toobalink Starter Kit, $34.99.
