What can you do with your old Flintoboxes?

Creative Reuse Of Flintobox By Our Customers

Dollhouse Present

One of our customers Katherine Pandian decorated their Flintobox in two unique ways. One was a gift box where her son safely placed DIY presents for his friend.

Second, they also made a colourful and creative dollhouse inside the box. They did so by creating partitions using cardboard from the box activities to create different rooms. Doesn’t that look fun? 🙂


Colourful Cupboard

Here we have another one by our customer – Jayasmita, who, along with her child has decorated their old Flintobox into a cupboard after decorating it in grand fashion! It’s creative and super useful! You can use this to store stationery, accessories and so much more!

90% of a child’s permanent foundation for brain development occurs in the early years according to Rauch Foundation. An overuse of gadgets can only stunt this growth and cause a negative impact on the child’s overall development.
