I don't know about your family ,but when I was growing up, whenever someone unwrapped a present and found a box of some sort inside they'd say, "OH MY GOSH a box! Just what I always wanted!" and no one ever really laughed but we kept saying it year after year anyway just because why not. Well with the Rolobox kit - a set of four plastic wheels that can turn any old box into a little vehicle - your kid might actually end up enjoying those boxes after all!
Expanding their play potential beyond the standbys of "fort" and "hat" (size depending), the Rolobox wheels attach to a box's corners with plastic nuts and bolts, and a little tail lets tikes tug their new toy around behind them. OK, yes, there's a chance your precocious tater tot will see what you're doing, trying to turn something that used to contain a real toy into some sort of plaything itself with a $US14 plastic kit, but just take that as your cue for explaining recession economics.
