Behind the Scenes with DK: The Making of Out of the Box

Our upcoming book Out of the Box is chock-full of playful cardboard creations to spark a kid’s creativity ­– so it’s no surprise our video shoot for the title was just as fun!

Take a look at the behind the scenes photos below and see how some of these recycled masterpieces came to be. (See if you can spot our helper, Artie the dog – and our star, Aidan the human!)

Cardboard galore...

Lights, camera, action!

Having fun is tiring!

Robots on the go.

Stop motion in motion.

Adding a splash of colour.

Lots of things to prepare.

The finest photographer's assistant.

"Do I live here now?"

Build something brilliant with recycled card, from castles to animal masks, dens and even lizards! You will be astounded at what the humble cardboard box can be transformed into. Out of the Box is a new approach to recycling that will provide hours of entertainment and endless fun.
