Our Story

Nice to meet you!

We are a family run business, inspired by our own little explorers and conscious of the new world we are raising our children in. We came up with the idea for Cub Box while on holiday in the Pacific North West. One night, in our Airbnb, we watched with much amusement, and a certain element of nostalgia, as our 11 month old son took delight from playing peekaboo in the blanket basket!

Not uncommon, but when growing up we both absolutely loved playing in cardboard boxes, spending hours in them! Since having our own family we have seen first hand how children have the most amazing imaginations, they can look at a cardboard box and imagine it’s a thousand different things. It was then when we had the idea to create fun cardboard play boxes which are a take on modern life and that are beautiful enough that people will want in their home.


The Journey So Far

We’ve all played in cardboard boxes as kids and probably seen a few new versions online but Cub Box is setting a new bar for the cardboard box. We have spent a year working with some super bright people to make the coolest cardboard play boxes on the market. Our cardboard creations pop up in minutes with no fixings, glue or tape in sight.

Our first two Cub Boxes are ‘Echo’ the Antarctic ocean research boat and ‘Scout’ the explorer wagon. That’s just our ideas, but let it unlock the imagination of your Cub to be whatever they want and sit back and watch their story unfold.

Cub Boxes are awesome eco-toys for one to fives with amazing eco credentials, designed and made right here in the UK. The ethically sourcing and design process has reduced the packaging size to make it as efficient as possible to ship.

They are made from:

  • 90% recycled materials
  • Printed with biodegradable inks
  • FSC certified
  • 100% recyclable
  • 100% biodegradable.

Cub Boxes are plastic free toys for toddlers, tots and little adventurers. Designed with the British weather in mind so it’s the perfect wet weather life-saver toy! But when the sun does come out it makes the ideal sunny garden toy for kids to chill out in. When it’s the end of the day just fold your Cub Box back down and store away under the sofa for the next time.
