How everything began
We have known each other since our joint graphic design studies. Our children Hannes and Max have expanded our areas of interest: Birgit has become an absolute toy fan and also Jule leaves her computer often times in standby.
The box is the best
For packages and gifts that arrived in large boxes, our kids were happy about the content – but the box was often the best for play. It’s amazing how enduring, creative and enthusiastic children can play with a simple cardboard box.
When Hannes’s favorite box collapsed after a long box life as a one-room apartment, a grocery store, a ship, a puppet theater (…) at some point in the game with Max and could no longer be mended, the grief was great. Until Max’s father, who works with paperboard, brought along a new, self-made play house: the bibabox idea was born.
Nice and stowable
The best thing about the new house: It looked much better than the old box. And while the box occupied a considerable part of the nursery even after playing, the new beautiful house can simply be folded flat and stowed behind the cupboard. We were excited!
Much more than just houses
So we started looking at cardboard as a material and soon had a long list of ideas on what to do with this great, eco-friendly, versatile material. We are now realizing these ideas under the bibabox brand. bibabox means:
- designed with love and heart in Dresden
- 100% made in Germany
- made of stable, white corrugated cardboard
- ready for mating, painting and creative shapes
- simply fold it up after playing and save space
- naturally recycled and recyclable
