The Kids Imagination Furniture was designed with the help of feedback from over 200 parents and children. The Cardboard Guys have demoed their furniture at the SLO Children’s Museum, Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History, and SLO Makerspace, along with daycares and family-oriented community events. Says Justin Farr, CEO & Co-Founder, “We learned that parents want to provide their kids with an environment to color outside the lines; a place for creative freedom. The Imagination Desk and Chair is theirs to do just that.” To raise money for their first run of manufacturing, The Cardboard Guys are launching a Kickstarter campaign on February 24th, 2015. All backers will be able to pre-order the Kids Imagination Desk & Chair for discounted prices along with perks including a miniature and life-size version of The Cardboard Guys’ mascot, Cardboard Corey.
