Giveaway: What designs do YOU want to see created from Skallops today?

Card House Building Set by E&M Labs Skallop clips in action


Happy Friday all! Today's Grommet launch is especially exciting for us because we're asking for YOUR participation! Skallops are clever little clips that were created by two friends with a vision for making the ordinary card houses into extraordinary designs. One thing they truly love to see is what design ideas others come up with.

So today, jump on over to the Skallops page and leave a comment with what type of design you'd like to see. Be sure to include your name in your comment so that we can credit you with the design idea. At 6 pm ET, the Grommet and Skallop judges will convene and announce the winner for coolest design. The lucky winner will receive a free junior pack with instructions on how to build their winning design.

Designs can be as simple as a hat , or as complex as a wheel or bridge. YOU name it and the Skallops team will build it!

So let's get started, head on over to our comment board and let Evan and the Skallops team know what your challenge design is!

We'll be sure to update this post with pictures of the challenge designs that the Skallop team creates (so check back)!

    Looks like a lot of dun. Great ideas. Just saw the blog. I know i'm late but wondering if it woild be possible to make a replica of the Hubble Space telescope and the space shuddle with the arm grabbing the telescope. I have a friend who would love this and it would be a great gjft but i have no creative or building ability. I cane even do much with Leggo's so was wondering it help was available.

  • Michael Says:

    I bought these and knew at the time I better buy a number of sets. I did not and totally regret it. I am "jonesing" for more myself and when restocked I am sending them out as Christmas gifts to my 28 nieces and nephews. (shhhh don't tell them). Love the pictures with new ideas of how to connect them.
