All the components you need to embark on a journey to discover a landscape of digital making adventures!


SKU: S8100


The digital makers take the next steps after they have set up their basic camp and got things going. They aim to level up on their basic making to make their castaway life a little more comfortable. Some of them start foraging near their base camp and the remains of their boat to see what useful stuff they can salvage. It’s literally a treasure hunt where the best stuff isn’t gold or jewels but stuff like cardboard and wood!
