I've been told that new parents often get bored staying inside with their precious new bundle. Well, Lilly and Leon Mackie found a perfect and pretty awesome way to deal with it. Not only had the pair just welcomed their new baby, Orson, into their lives, but also they had accumulated a bunch of cardboard boxes from their recent move from New Zealand to Australia. So, instead of just throwing the boxes out, they turned them into something wonderful and started the blog Cardboard Box Office. Lilly and Leon have been setting up famous movie scenes starring their favorite male lead character, baby Orson.

Here's "Jaws"...

"The Dark Knight"...


This supercreative rendition of "Jurassic Park"...


Lilly told Buzzfeed, "For 'Apollo 13,' Leon had to set the five-second timer, run around the cardboard space capsule, grab my legs, and pull me into a headstand position before quickly getting himself into position," she said. "We had to do this about six or seven times. … We're avoiding any more space ones for the time being."

Impressively, all of the props used to make Cardboard Box Office photos were household items. We can't wait to see what baby Orson's next role will be.
