Infento is the first in the world to develop a kit for families that lets them build real constructible rides together. You only need one kit and one hex key to create unlimited rides for their whole childhood, from toddler to teenager. From a walker, scooter, tricycle, bicycle, go-kart, skibock to a sledge and more. Infento’s modular parts allow endless possibilities.

About Infento

The starting point of Infento goes back to 2010. Co-founder Spencer is a volunteer for a youth organization and there he came up with the idea to organize a race for kids with rides they’ve helped to build. The kids loved building real stuff and they were really creative with the material that was available. Now what would be possible with truly multi-functional and multi-adjustable parts? Just like Lego and Meccano. But then life size. Infento started with the development of an education kit especially designed for schools, which is now being sold worldwide. The positive feedback from schools, parents and children lead to the decision to develop a product specially designed for the consumer market. After two years of development this new kit is now ready to go to market. Infento consists of a team of 7 people and is located in Amsterdam and Seattle.
