Hey guys, what are you all waiting for? There are some really cool prizes available to the winners of the Wack photo contest. But I only have one entry so far. :( That's just sad people. C'mon, surely some of you have already built the new Wack paper toy. Right? So now just take a cool picture of it doing something interesting and send it to me. You just might win something! And you would be supporting me in the process. Now doesn't that sound…

So I'm sure by now you can hear the new Paper Toy song playing in the background!!! Pretty cool, huh? The song is by our very own, Super Cooper's parent's band, Lave Diva. They wrote the song for Cooper's birthday party, and have given us permission to use it here on Nice Paper Toys!
If you listen closely you will hear them mention "Spiky Baby", "HedKase", "Squealer" and "Mechanical Man". That's right people, paper toys have graduated to rock star status! ;)
Anyhow, I hope… Continue

Hi gang. In an effort to better establish a uniform online identity, I have decided to condense all of my usernames, etc, to Castleforte. So those of you who know me as NiceBunny will have to get used to calling me by my real name, Castleforte. Don't worry NiceBunny fans, I'm still here, and our beloved little character isn't going away either, he now just no longer has to share his name with his creator. ;)
Thanks! Your friend,

I was asked to create a place where all the Calling All Cars pics could be found easily, so I created a group for you. Please join the group and upload your Calling All Cars pics there. Of course, you can also post them to the gallery, but the group will make it easy for people to view just the pics from the Calling All Cars series.
And remember, you can create your own groups anytime you like, for anything you wish. I hope this helps. Have fun!…
