Ok, the (admittedly a bit crazy) design of this toy was prompted by my 3 years old son who – not unusual for his gender and age – is somewhat fixated on guns. I am not exactly thrilled by his infatuation with guns, and I certainly don’t want to promote it. So that made me […]
Here is a kind of ‘interactive’ model and actually quite a nice toy: A ‘working’ instant camera made from paper: So, what do I mean by working? Well, you can turn the crank on the right-hand side and the camera will output a picture you have taken. The mechanism is robust enough to work […]

This is basically the single one animal starting with the letter ‘Y’ both in English and German. If you have made all 24 letters coming before this one in the alphabet, you will be relieved to fnd that this one is very easy to make. You will find the other 25 letters of the papercraft […]
This is what it looks like when you x-ray a letter – you did know that they are made of flesh and bones, right? You will find the other 25 letters of the papercraft alphabet here. Here is the template as a PDF file.
