These relief boxes for refugees also double as toys. Created by Dutch designer Lisanne Koning, Inside the Box is an artistic project that consists of "toys made out of cardboard relief boxes."

The cardboard boxes for refugees containing food and medical supplies go a long way to help people affected by humanitarian and natural disasters. However, the priority is often offering vital aid and not toys for children. This initiative helps kids play again and cope with their circumstances, while also addressing the issue of waste.

The packages are printed with colorful images including animals and trucks. Pieces can also be used to transform the boxes into board games. The whole thing is color coded to suggest different activities for various age groups as well.
