Since 2005, Dutch comic-illustrator/designer Maarten Janssens has rediscovered the world of paper kits. His lifelong fascination with pictures, characters and paper-material came together in what soon became his project-of-love 3EyedBear. It still took two years before the project aired due to work and lack of direction, but in 07, Maarten launched his website which immediately became very successful.

The work still gets in the way, so the project is evening-, night- and weekendfueled but the direction appeared quite simple: It's wrapped around the concept not only to create a basic and accessible awareness and little community for those who like papercraft, but mainly as an experiment to prove the philosophy that simple 3-dimensional ideas can travel as paperkits all around the world without cultural or natural boundaries. Because they translate easily into bits and bytes, you only need a computer, a printer, some scissors and glue to get started.

Want one? Go get it August 1-2 in Arnsberg (Germany) for it will be exclusively released there! The cutting will be done for you and it doesn't require glue, so it's just warp & play. And get another one. Nice chance also to meet the cool paper-engineers behind …

It's been a while since an interesting platformtoy came by. But luckily the UrbanPaperCollective did feel the same and invented the Elephriend.

Now, we can start customizing and collecting all over again.…

Parrots, by 3Eyedbear

I know that NPT is the place to get your hands on free toys, but the newest set by 3Eyedbear is wáááy more exclusive and therefore só much cooler. You can support Maarten Janssens for once by buying this friendly little family of Parrots, but he rewards you in return for it too! You will get supervised, signed prints of three family-members (coloured by Maarten in the colours you choose, so each package is totally unique!) on selected paper, some collectible stickers and stuff, but you also…

Yo Maarten,

Ik kreeg een request voor de lpearce beer. Dit begreep ik niet want ze zijn toch nog DL-able, tot ik het zelf probeerde, stuk, kapot, kaduuk, doet het niet.    Kun je hem maken of opsturen.

Grtz Meth.

Hey Maarten I hate to ask but by any chance could you give me like an instruction guide to OEMPF? I keep building him and reprinting him over and over because I either mess up terribly or the tabs just start coming apart after about a day. I follow the tabs by number order and still end up with same results. I feel like a fool asking this but Im just wasting lots of paper and lots of ink on this toy
