Paper Punk to Release TMNT and Spongebob Paper Construction Kits


Maker of paper-based construction toys, Paper Punk, has recently signed a licensing deal that gives them rights to develop paper-based construction kits based on two of Nickelodeon’s hottest animated properties, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Spongebob Squarepants. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kits are scheduled for a February 2014 release, while the Spongebob Squarepants ones are scheduled for the following mid-year.

“We know from a study I’m conducting at Stanford that people can learn to become more creative through hands-on building and making activities,” said PAPER PUNK Founder/CEO Grace Hawthorne, a Stanford professor and mom. “When Nickelodeon invited us to make PAPER PUNK versions of their leading properties, we were very excited to offer new audiences a fun antidote to today’s over-saturated digital environment. PAPER PUNK is a play experience and learning tool in one self-contained package.”

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kits will retail for $9.95 and each of the four turtles will have their own all-inclusive kit, which contains 6 punch-n-fold shapes, more than 30 stickers, and 40 adhesive dots to construct a 9” x 3” x 5” 3D paper figure. These kits will be unveiled at the PAPER PUNK booth #2164-F at the American International Toy Fair in New York City, February 16-19, 2014.

The Paper Punk Spongebob SquarePants kits, on the other hand, will have Bikini Bottom buds, SpongeBob and Patrick. Each kit ($14.95) will also be all-inclusive, containing 8-16 punch-n-fold shapes, more than 120 stickers, and 40 adhesive dots to construct paper figures standing 7.5” x 7” x 3”.
