WHY, WHO, WHAT?

Our dream on Planet JUNKO is that kids get more thrill and satisfaction from making a toy than just getting bought a new one. We're really focussed on children learning to use their imagination and developing craft and construction skills.


We're a family business based in the UK. The JUNKO system was designed by Pete Rope and developed with his three kids. It all started when they were making a toy car from a juice carton and came up short when they got to making the wheels...
