Although women are often the ones pegged as spatially challenged, there are a lot of different people, from kids to industrial designers, that cannot grasp spatial concepts; enter Paper Punk. Part origami, part LEGO and every bit recyclable, Paper Punk offers exercises that help people solve problems using dimensional thinking.

Conceived and created by Grace Hawthorne, designer and cofounder of ReadyMade magazine, Paper Punk come in kits with sheets of cardstock paper that have shapes scored into them. By following the directions, one of three 3D objects are formed through folding; a dog, a robot and a car. Yet the beauty of Paper Punk is that 16 geometric shapes can be remixed into four sizes into any creation.
