“Happy Paper Toys” are self-assembly toys series. They come in the form of colorful designed booklets. Inside each booklet there are paper toys in 2-dimensional layouts, which can easily be popped out of the page (no need for scissors!). Each toy has fun comics-style instructions; you only need to have is clear fast-drying glue, a string (for the transportation series only) and ….patience on hand!
The booklets are intended for various ages:
- Ages 4-10- can construct with the help of a parent for a quality time of “togetherness”.
- Ages 10 and up- can enjoy the challenge of assembling by themselves.
The time spent constructing is magical: watching the two-dimensional sheet of paper being transformed, bit by bit, into a fun toy each time you fold it, leaves you with a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
At the moment there are 3 different booklets series: ‘The Magical Journey’, ‘The Return of the Robots’, and ‘Dolls of the World’.
— The Magical Journey
This booklet theme is transportation/aviation. The booklet includes 4 cut-outs of: an airplane, a spaceship, a bus and a hot-air balloon.
The vehicles design was inspired by old tin cars and airplanes that Eitan used to have as a kid and also by airplanes models he used to build.
When painting the booklet’s cover, Hadar thought of the beautiful landscape you see when flying or going on a road trip.
At the end of construction the toys can be hung as mobiles, placed on shelves as decoration or even played with! The booklet also contains amusing little anecdotes about different passengers on each vehicle toy.
— The Return of the Robots
This booklet is all about robots. It contains 4 unique amusing robots: Machino, Roberta, Ironic & Tik-Tak.
The robots design is inspired by the old tin robots from the 50’s that both Hadar and Eitan love and collect. The cover illustration was inspired by the atmosphere in the old movie ‘Metropolis’, which still is a master peace in all aspects.
Each character has its own ID card, with information about its serial no., profession, hobbies, etc. At the end of construction the dolls can be played with or placed on shelves as decoration!
— Dolls of the World
The Booklet contains 3 enchanting dolls:
Anika- the Dutch doll, Zahra- the African doll, and Reiko- our Japanese doll.
It is inspired by the folklore dolls our grandmothers used to collect and present (in their original plastic boxes) on the piano or on a high shelf which no one can reach. Hadar remembers she always wanted to play with them but was not allowed …
Each doll is specifically designed according to the traditional customs of the country represented by her. At the end of construction the dolls can be played with or placed on shelves as decoration! The booklet also contains some cute little anecdotes about the traditions of the country represented.

The idea is based on the creations Hadar used to do with paper, when she was a child: She would draw a figure on a sheet of paper, fold it and cut the shape of it, so it opens it would make a beautiful chain of characters for decorating. That way she created many princesses, fairies and other creatures from fairy tales.
