APRIL FOOL'S DAY - Care Bears


THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 20 cm     Width: 18 cm     Depth: 15 cm
Pages: 6
Pieces: 33
Level: Medium
Designer: the Paper Model Factory

NOTES: I don't know about you, but I thought it was a pretty funny day. I hope you guys thought it was funny too, even tho it was quite an eyesore :P The models with the pdfs will be available next week on the factory. We'll keep it here until then, just for the laugh :P

Download

Also, we changed the website a little bit and it's still in progress. I need to code some of the widget and make a background that actually make sense... but it's still better than the eyesore that we had on fish day.

Gotta say that Brandon spent all night making different textures for all the Care Bears :P

He's still sending more to me! lol

DjeDje-007 said...

If you want you can make all these textures :) in this pdf : http://playimaginative.com/images/Share-A-Bear_Bio.pdf

34 differents !!! (without the different animal...)

The model is based on the hello kitty you've already made, but is much more simple !!!

i couldn't believe it. I forgot it was april fools as well and thought that either you guys decided to have an... "interesting" makeover or the carebears site had dominated pokemon 8|

DjeDje-007 said...

Next year Rainbow Brite papercrafts ? ^^;

PMF said...

hmmm, i don't think we'll do Rainbow brite, I'm not a fan of it and it needs to be something that can have multiple models made of it. maybe the barbapapas... :P

dodoman said...

hawkxs said...

When will these be in pdf form? For some reason I can't open the template in Pepakura viewer, it freaks out on me whenever I try it.

Looking forward to putting some of these together! :P

RMDC said...

I'm looking forward to PDF as well - I'm stuck on an ancient Linux Eee netbook, so no Pepakura for me. I'm itching to make four copies of all the bears (one each for my two daughters, my wife, and myself). :D
