What are Strawbees?

Strawbees is a construction set for you to build things that can stand, move, spin, glide, or even walk across the floor.

Strawbees is a construction set, which means it’s made to build things. It is as a material for people to express, test and share their ideas, developing the necessary skills to think creatively.

The 4 color-coded connectors have respectively 1, 2, 3 and 5 legs. You can fit straws on their legs, slide a straw through the hole or click a leg on a hole. Colour-coded straws are carefully measured and resistant enough to endure daily use.

No additional parts are required. You can build structures, mechanical contraptions, and robotic mechanisms all with these 4 connectors.
