metireals and elements to bind objects together

Elastic bands
double sided tape
shoe lace



this is visualisation of the objects

crayons was sudgested to be used as missiles

Batteries would be a brilliant thing to addapted, as not only as a power source but also as a visual element.

 a dulls head being used as a turret, or some of its body being used and dismantalled to be able to carry other stuff

 these are classic building tools and what structural elements can be made out, BUT being carful that they aren't made as the primery building souce, (in other words mix things and other toys into the structures, dont let them to become the dominant part)  

Marballs, would be grate as a way to be used as a set of wheels or missiles   

clock work teeth, and clock work toys would be a brilliant rememberal element in the designs of the structures and vehicles

 Nurf toys would be a good thing to adapt, though with the research I have only come across the guns, but I have seen in the past foam bullets being used on smaller toys like tanks.  
the rollerscate automatically has a nice riding platform to begin with, it would be nice to adapt and play with this further.  

 Rubix cube, a brilliant thing to try and adapt, or to even have in the environment as a remenisnt peace.

 Air fix kits would be awesome to addapt into structures.


 tamagotchi I imagen as a computer in this toy world.
 Castles and garage are good things as a defence

 toy trucks, are a classic element from a toy box, and grate thing to adapted and modifie

 wooden building blox would be a brilliant aspect to adapt and utelise

All these toys have left me with tuns of food for thought to how this world of toys fighting toys can be used and cant wait for designing and putting things together.
