I now have a 3 month old baby boy. His arrival has been highly correlated with a rapid increase in Amazon purchases… diapers, wipes, toys, books, diaper bags, play mats, etc.
I love pretty much everything about Amazon these days. They are wonderful — they supply our life.
The only downside to this supply is the massive quantity of cardboard boxes that accumulate each week in my house. It also occurs to me that cardboard boxes are one of the most fun toys for young kids. I distinctly remember building spaceships and forts as a young boy myself.
So, Amazon, my idea for you is to print some fun designs on the boxes themselves. Make the massive quantity of cardboard you ship around the world fun and interesting all by itself. Print simple cutout designs and spaceship ideas or blueprints for cardboard castles. You also certainly know when you’re shipping stuff for young kids — so you could do it selectively.
