45+ Free Designer Paper Toys

July 2nd, 2007 by Jerome Dahdah

Free Designer Paper ToysYou can never be too old for paper toys, especially when they are of the stylish designer type. I’ve scoured the web to find you some of the best free designer paper toys out there. Simply print ’em, cut ’em out, fold ’em and glue ’em together and you’ve got yourself some extremely cool little friends.

I’ve done my best to find only original paper toys… that is, these designs are original by their designers and not recreations of known characters.

Have fun with these and feel free to share photos of your completed paper toys with us!
