Here is an easy to make homemade toy that will be more loved that the toys shipped in it.

With a little imagination, an old cardboard box can become nearly anything.


  • Cardboard box
  • Box cutter
  • Marker
  • a little imagination

It took less that an hour to complete this repurposed box project.  We included two swinging garage doors for the tractor-trailers, and a large open door for our Mighty Tonkas. On the back of the box we opened up a giant size hole so our little truck drivers could get right inside with the trucks.

The door opening for a Mighty Tonka Truck should be about 9.5w x 11h.  If you happen to have an old Nylint or Ertl semi around, door openings should be 6x x 9h.
