Created by Takashi Tsunoda, the Japanese toy designer behind PIPEROID paper robots, Monster Cubes offer a similar paper-folding DIY experience. You’ll get a perforated sheet of paper that can be punched out and folded into monster – no tape, glue or scissors required. You can even put little items or notes in the monster’s hands or mouth. Tsunoda created these cubes using moder box-folding techniques inspired by traditional Japanese handicrafts. Bring one of these lightweight and easy-to-pack Monster Cube sheets on your next cross-country flight or road trip for instant entertainment on the go. And while we wish they were printed on recycled paper, once your kid tires of the monster, they can be recycled.
