This DIY pinball kit brings the arcade to your home

Unleash your inner pinball wizard.


The Daily Dot Bazaar


Everyone loves pinball—it’s nostalgic, strategic, and entertaining. Having a full-sized pinball machine in your home might not be feasible, but building the PinBox 3000 DIY Pinball Kit is.

The PinBox3000 is a flat-packed, build-it-yourself kit made of cardboard that lets you assemble and design a desktop pinball machine. A real pinball machine would take weeks (if not months) to complete. You don’t need to be a mechanic or an engineer to complete this one. You just need about an hour of free time, a little bit of patience, and a lot of creativity.

The kit includes two interchangeable play boards, fold and slot assembly, and step-by-step instructions. No extra tools are necessary. There are infinite design possibilities to customize your game—build as many jumps, bumps, ramps, and rails as you’d like.

Unleash your inner pinball wizard and work those STEM skills. Get the PinBox 3000 DIY Cardboard Pinball Kit for just $44.95 from the Daily Dot store. That’s reduced from the original price of $59.95.
