Now that's what I call Paper Toys!

But thanks for the other link, I'm always looking for new papercraft sites since it's a hobby I share with my 7-year old.

Most of the toys don't have a pdf link. I wonder how you're supposed to get the high quality prints from those.

And thanks for the link C Brannon. That's a great site.

Take pictures of your creations and post them to the Flickr photo group http://www.flickr.com/groups/readymech/ dedicated to Readymech paper crafts.

My son Loved these!! Great for keeping his hands busy with something more productive than video games.
