Here are some helpful resources for optimum creativity and fun at home with our printable toys. Many of the items listed below are items that my family use and love!
While a laminator isn't a need, I've found it helpful to laminate our toys to keep them in tact for extended periods of time. This paired with printing toys on cardstock paper will ensure that with safe-keeping, your kids can enjoy their toys for quite some time!
For our printable articulated puppets and other crafts with moveable parts, mini brads are a must-have. I especially love this particular set because of the tones for our articulated puppets.
This tool is a great buy for crafts that require the use of brads. It allows you to pierce many materials, insert brads, spread the edges and flatten with no ruined brads.
For extended play, I always recommend that our customers print our toys on cardstock instead of regular printer paper. It tends to be more sturdy and toys are sure to keep for longer. Cardstock can be found online and anywhere you'd regularly purchase printer paper - typically within the same aisle.
For our printable puppets, dowels are a great addition as they can help support the puppet when glued or taped to the back of it. These can be found at any craft store and on amazon.
