Froot Loops® Box

This page presents some construction images and additional information about the Froot Loops box creation process.

Prelimary Design Work

Front Panel Desired from KCC

Original Art

Although we used a different image during feasibility studies, this image, supplied by KCCUSA, was the starting point for our designs. This is a classic and very typical Froot Loops box art. Since we knew a mosaic was desired, we looked around to see what programs might be of assistance and found Bob Kojima's great program, Bricksiac.


This was a first pass using solid colors as generated by Bricksiac. We ended up making the colors much more regular than this because, unlike most mosaics, this box was going to be viewed from up close, and the dithering that usually makes for a more accurate picture from a distance would be distracting to kids with their noses 6 inches away.

Engineering Work

Armature Engineering Drawing

Armature Engineering

This drawing was created by Steve Ringe to document how the armature was going to work and to enable procurement and fabrication.


Early in the construction process, Chris and Ken cranked out the back sides of several sections, since these required no mosaic, they went quickly.

Too Many Parts

The inside of the box could be any color we wanted to use or had lots of...

So we used cheap colors since we cornered the market on red 2x4s!...

The number of different parts used at one time was very large, though.
