21st Century Paper Toy
Out of Japanese paper craft tradition

spacer400x1.gifPaper
And Paper Only

Brightly-coloured pipes coalesce to form PIPEROID.
All made of paper.
Perfectly rolled in such a manner
optimizing the balance between the easiness in
cutting with scissors and the strength to sustain during assembly,
maximizing your experience in paper-crafting.

spacer400x1.gifReboot Your Passion

Remember the fun in building something with your own hands
when you were a kid?
PIPEROID was launched in the hope of
recalling and reviving the passion and excitement
you once experienced back in those days.

spacer400x1.gifAll you need is
a pair of Scissors,
Passion, and no more

Snip and build, just like that,
and your buddy character will be created in no time.
Move the little parts to pose.
Your buddy will surely fill your heart and soul with joy.

spacer400x1.gifFrom Japan

Paper craft has been a part of Japanese culture since the Edo Period (1603 ~ ).
PIPEROID is a modern style evolved from this culture,
transforming simple paper pipes into various rich and joyful expressions.
