Papercrafts with penguins.
YAMAHA designed two wonderful papercrafts
They made sculptures of african and yellow-eyed penguins.
The models are about 8 cm tall.
As you can see on the pictures, it is quite possible to make them, if you're a bit handy.
But follow their instructions carefully about paper and glue,
because first I tried another glue and that didn't work good.
I used paper of 160g/m² and wood glue.
They also made sculptures of other rare animals like tiger, polar bear, gorilla etc...
You can download the sculpture and assembly instructions as PDF files from
I changed and enlarged this model a bit: about 17 cm tall.
Canon too has a similar papercraft: it is a model of an
Baby seat in penguin shape.
A tip for someone who can work with a sewing-machine:
In the Dutch magazine Knippie Baby winter 2002/2003, you find a pattern to make a baby seat
in penguin form.
With thanks to Hannie van Grinsven who mailed me the picture and tip.
