Paper Toys by Zakane

Paper Art Toys by artist Zakane! How cool is this? I was watching toybreak and they were showing these paper art toys and I had to go check out the site. So why do I find these so interesting? Truthfully they just look so cool. This is something I could see kids of all ages loving. I remember way back when I was kid (doodloodo Flashback) I was watching a King Kong movie marathon of such classics as King Kong, Son of Kong, Mighty Joe young and I loved the movies so much while I was watching them I created paper toy kong’s.

It’s the simplest way to create your own toys the cheap and free way. They don’t cost anything to download and make. Print out the designs and go at it. Now when I say simple to make, don’t get me wrong I know it’s not as easy as it sounds or might look, check out the video after the break and you will see what I mean. Continue reading →
