Our monsters had a baby and WE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW.
Momo is the love child of Heidi and Zeke, the two monsters I created for the Papertoy Monsters book. Momo is not available for download, but is my gift to anyone who does a Paypal donation to my site. Do you like all my free models? Want to support my site? Send a donation and get your own Momo PDF send to your e-mail inbox.
Alright, so I know that this is long overdue as this book has been out for quite some time now, but we finally got the chance to flip through the pages of Brian Castleforte’s awesome ‘Papertoy Monsters’ book! The book has 50 original papertoy monsters from 25 designers…
It’s me, Grover!
(Not one of ours, but a favorite lovable, furry monster who stars in a book of his own)

We heart you guys. We really do. You take pictures of papertoy monsters hanging out together. And then you tweet about them, or submit them to us (submission button in the sidebar!). So keep ‘em coming. So we can continue to heart you as much as our fiendish selves are able.
The creative and generous minds at C3 (including Papertoy Monsters artist Matt Hawkins) have come up with a project to help the people of Japan during these difficult times: Paper Koi. For a mere $10 suggested donation to the American Red Cross, you can download the first in a series of koi papertoys.
From the Paper Koi website:
"In Japanese symbolism, the koi represents perseverance during struggles faced by humans. Because of its strength and determination to overcome obstacles, the koi stands for courage. The disaster in Japan has cost billions of dollars and thousands of lives. Here is our way of contributing to the relief effort."
Visit Paper Koi to download one (or more) of these amazing toys for hope.
