It’s groovy because it’s a little tool that cuts grooves… Get it? Or, well, it doesn’t even cut grooves, really, it just cuts. So our jokes suck a little bit, but the Box Bug doesn’t.
It’s a box cutter designed with kids in mind. Within its clear plastic body are cardboard gripping plastic wheels that turn two round metal blades as you glide over the material. A small space at the bottom is thin enough for cardboard, but not large enough for fingers to get in, keeping your child safe from injury. Box Bug even helps make decorations by ejecting a thin strip of cardboard from a hole in the top cavity, leaving extra material for rope or garnish for a child’s creation.
We can definitely see this being used in a classroom somewhere, for some kind of arts and crafts. I sucked so bad at arts and crafts that I was sent to detention because the teacher thought I was being bad on purpose. True story.
It’s projected to cost $9, and it’s a Quirky project, which means it may or may not see the light of day.
