Mister Imagine's Toy Store allows imaginations to run wild by selling only plain cardboard boxes.

Welcome to Mister Imagine's Toy Store, where you'll find a giant castle, a music area, birdhouses, weather clouds, hot air balloons, and much more – all made out of cardboard. Oh, and that cardboard, those plain boxes - all for sale of course. The staff hosts workshops on how to create masterpieces out of ordinary cardboard. There's an augmented reality station in the store, where kids can hold up their bland boxes to the computer screen, and it will turn that box into a toy in the kids hands just to jump-start their imaginations. It's a car! It's a fort! It's a plane! It's Schrödinger's cat! Because we all remember how babies played with the box the expensive toy we bought came in, instead of with the toy.
