(PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE A ZOOMER! OR CORE ZOOMER! KIT ALREADY TO USE THIS AWESOME ADD-ON KIT)
Create your own whacky water toys from junk with the Water! Kit and have a whale of a time in the bath or paddling pool.
It’s a super schweet add-on to either Zoomer! Kit. The paddle wheels replace the rear wheels and use the existing rubber band drive to power it through the water. The front wheels get swapped with floats and there’s an extra float at the rear to keep your model sitting pretty above the water.
And, there are extra rubber band supports so you can use longer rubber bands to go further. There are even fittings for popular block model figures or blocks in all of the floats for even more imaginative shenanigans.

This is a developmental and educational toy. It’s particularly good for adults and kids to do together, certainly to get started, as those essential skills like planning, measuring, cutting safely and accurately can be passed on. Once you get kids going, you’ll be amazed at how accomplished they get as they use their JUNKO more… and how satisfying it is to make something truly original, versus just following a load of instructions for a kit that makes one thing.
Learning to think and problem solve and work with waste materials, each with different properties is really good for children’s development, that’s why junk modelling is part of the UK school curriculum.
STEM / STEAM EDUCATIONAL TOY which is challenging (in a good way!) Develops kids creativity, construction, problem-solving and motor skills and teaches foundation science and mechanics. Perfect for creative boys and girls, age 6-11.
GENUINELY ECO-FRIENDLY TOY – made from recycled plastic in the EU and teaches kids environmental awareness. Plastic-free

JUNKO was invented by me, Pete, a Dad who was sad about all of the throwaway plastic toys and wanted to get kids off screens and learning to make things with their hands. I gave up my job and spent 2 years developing JUNKO with my kids and a 3D printer which we used to test everything. The idea came when I was making a junk model car from a juice carton with my kids and we didn’t have anything to make working wheels with… if only! I’m a graphic designer and I love making stuff, so it seemed fairly natural to start thinking about a solution to the wheels – by sketching, taking long baths etc. To start with, I wasn’t thinking it would become a product, but as time went on, with the plastic crisis and society producing more junk than we know what to do with it seemed like helping kids make working toys out of junk might just be about be right for our times. We’ve been going a couple of years and a growing slowly as people become more aware of JUNKO. We were lucky enough to star on an epsiode of Channel 4’s ‘Buy It Now for Christmas’ with Rylan last Christmas which got us quite a bit of exposure.We were lucky enough to star on an epsiode of Channel 4’s ‘Buy It Now for Christmas’ with Rylan last Christmas which gave us a leg up.
