Turn cans into fun!


Aluminum can sheeting is thinner and weaker than you would expect. It's like paper; it's flexible and flappy. And the sheet is typically curled back at the edges by the action of the sliding tool.

Once people have handled an Aluminoid, they usually think: "This isn't nearly as dangerous as I thought; this seems pretty safe."

It's like touching blunted scissors that are "anchored" in shaving cream. The scissors sink without cutting.

But don't prejudge Aluminoids on looks alone. Touch one. See for yourself how harmless they are.


You'll love the thrill you get from seeing joy, surprise, gratitude, and wonder in the faces of the kids to whom you gift Aluminoid toys.

And you'll top it off with the sense of capability, feeling of accomplishment, self-respect, and admiration you get from showing off some new and valuable skills.

And it's affordable, since one set of tools can make thousands of Aluminoids.
