Hadar-illustrator and Eitan-product designer, new parents of new baby-Karny, got to know the ‘toy world’ all over again. Because they are both designers, they were constantly searching for unique toys, and also for things that reminded them their childhood. That’s when ‘PaperCat’- our joint venture was created.
What is ‘Happy Paper Toys’?
“Happy Paper Toys” are self-assembly toys. They come in the form of colorful designed booklets. Inside each booklet are paper toys in 2-dimensional layouts, which can easily be popped out of the page (no need for scissors!). Each toy has fun comics-style instructions; you only need to have is clear fast-drying glue, a string (for the transportation series only) and patience on hand!
The booklets are intended for various ages:
– Ages 4-10 can construct with the help of a parent
– Ages 10 and up can enjoy the challenge of assembling by themselves.
The time spent constructing is magical: watching the two-dimensional sheet of paper being transformed, bit by bit, into a fun toy each time you fold it, leaves you with a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
* Dolls of the World
In this booklet we celebrate folklore all around the world!
It is inspired by the folklore dolls our grandmothers used to collect and present (in their original plastic boxes) on the piano or on a high shelf which no one can reach. Hadar remembers she always wanted to play with them but was not allowed …
Each doll is specifically designed according to the traditional customs of the country represented by her. At the end of construction the dolls can be played with or placed on shelves as decoration! The booklet also contains some cute little anecdotes about the traditions of the country represented.
