The Jukumari Paper Toy by Camila de Gregorio and Christopher Macaluso is a cleverly designed sculptural piece that is crafted entirely out of paper. Jukumari is Eggpicnic’s latest toy design that was created to raise awareness about South America's endangered Spectacled Bear species.

The Spectacled Bear is the continent's only species of bear and is said to contain a mere 3000 of its kind living in the wild today. The species is threatened and facing extinction due to the destruction of their natural habitat and as a result of poachers and farmers who hunt them for their meat and fur.

This paper-made toy is a great way to raise awareness for a growing ecological issue while appealing to a generation of both parent and child consumers.
