i think there are genres.
but not yet defined.
because like music, most of it's genres defined by media... but in papertoys we haven't got any media to define the genres, as the papertoys maker are still in small number,
I agree with Eric, it's a bit too creative and a bit too independant and small a culture to be set into distinct genres. I don't think it's time to split 'papertoys' into different sectors quite yet!

Although, paper toys are a genre of their own, within the design world.
yeah.. come to think about it? we are to small for the world? thanks for the opinion Ben, and thanks too eric... i hope that this discussion will go on...
just like Ben said,
papertoys itself a genre in toys. :)

like musics, first they have Pop music, then it split to Rock music, then it become metal, and so on and so on.

we've found many distinctive in style in papercraft, something like : no glue, with glue, one page, multi page,
tribute, original, fan art, customs. etc.
maybe it can become 'genre'. but i don;t think it wise to put genres in papertoys for now,
we need to grow the community first. :)
i think the genre on the papercfat are more like the periods of the styles used on them like periods onthe art minimalistic abstrac cubist things like that and as ben´s says its to early to put genres to the papercraft the time is the only judge here
