Paper Play

Looking to instill a sense of awareness, parents turn to papercraft toys

Implications - As youths continue to depend on technological devices for entertainment, the reliance on materialistic goods often prevents exposure to more diverse, and thought-provoking concepts. Seeking to add a sense of intellectual engagement to sources of play, parents are turning to papercraft toys to expand the environmental awareness of children, while simultaneously utilizing cost-effective techniques. Paper-made toys reflects a turn away from digitally distracting gadgets, toward more enlightening, and customized methods of enjoyment.
