Creative fun


My son absolutely loves his YOXO! He's built several toys including a laser rifle, spaceship, and the original YOXO bot!


it is a gift, but I wanted to take it out of the box!!


I know my grandson will enjoy this a great deal, his imagination can only be extended further by this toy.


A great product to cultivate creativity


I have two young children and they've enjoyed the ability to create different animals, robots, and structures using YOXO. It's a nice change from other creative products, like legos, as it allows kids to use different construction techniques, materials, and layouts. It's also fun for parents, if you can get it for a few minutes from your kids.More > < Less




I gave them to my 8 year old grandson for a gift. He likes to build with legos, so I thought he would like this. I had saved several paper towel and bath tissue rolls so that he could use them to build different things. He didn't seem impressed. He may have had too many other gifts at the time. I will check back with him in a couple weeks and see what he thinks.More > < Less




I bought this for my 5 year old grandson. We made the big robot together, then he lost interest in it. He found it tricky to get things to stay together.More > < Less

About YOXO

Creativity, Unrestrained

Play from Scratch is the green-loving, creativity-promoting Minnesota company behind YOXO building kits. The interlocking Y, X, and O shapes let kids make anything they can imagine—no fasteners needed. All the pieces are made from recycled materials that are treated with bright soy- and water-based colors.

Each kit comes with instructions to make one or two suggested objects. But kids are definitely encouraged to go rogue and create their own structures, vehicles, and creatures. They can even attach the YOXO pieces to household items—cereal boxes, paper towel holders, spoons, or whatever they can get their hands on.

Founder Jeff Freeland Nelson created YOXO based on his eighth birthday present, a small box containing string, wire, and tape. He was thrilled to have the raw materials to build anything he wanted.

Now Jeff and his team are dedicated to inspiring relentlessly creative kids with locally sourced, sustainable toys. So open a YOXO kit and start building. It’s a toy the whole family can feel good about.
