****************************************************************************

Foxe & Troo, adventurous twins, can't stop talking about the places they visit and helping kids with paper model making and other creative activities.

Paper models have been around for a few hundred years. They are usually designed either in a very complex way, which requires hours or days of assembling, or in an oversimplified way, involving just a few details therefore only making it exciting for a few moments. Also, after construction many paper models are placed on a shelf and forgotten about with their only purpose being to gather dust.

Foxe and Troo, the two porcupines that can't wait to meet you, decided they needed to do something to change that. They broke their piggy bank, travelled around, sketched, measured, drew, coloured and finally created the design they want to share with you.

Foxetroo models are designed so that kids need to make simple three-dimensional solids (such as cubes or cylinders) first and then connect them into a final model. Together with the graphics this will then resemble a recognizable architectural building. It's made easy for kids to assemble while developing their cognitive and motoric skills.

About

Paper Models Reinvented.

Paper models have been around for a few hundred years. They are usually designed either in a very complex way, which requires hours or days of assembling, or in an oversimplified way, involving just a few details therefore only making it exciting for a few moments. Also, after construction many paper models are placed on a shelf and forgotten about with their only purpose being to gather dust.

Foxe and Troo, the two porcupines that can't wait to meet you, decided they needed to do something to change that. They broke their piggy bank, travelled around, sketched, measured, drew, coloured and finally created the design they want to share with you.

Let's learn more about what's unique with the FOXETROO kits.


IT'S A KIDS' ZONE!

Foxetroo models are designed so that kids need to make simple three-dimensional solids (such as cubes or cylinders) first and then connect them into a final model. Together with the graphics this will then resemble a recognisable architectural building. It's made easy for kids to assemble while developing their cognitive and motoric skills.

Now it's time to learn about Foxetroo kits in depth - its convenient packaging, blueprint cards, cheerful graphics and don't forget to read the fine print, too!


IT STARTS WITH A PACKAGE.

All the parts needed to make the particular building are housed inside a convenient pocket size kit.

Assembling instructions and diagrams printed on the inside of the cover show the most important steps in building the model.

Continue to read about the cards.


LOOK WHAT'S INSIDE.

Foxetroo kits contain two sets of cards – assemble both models yourself or invite someone to help you. We call them cards due to their appealing rounded corners which resemble playing cards.

Each set contains a title card, a porcupine card and the blueprint cards. The size of the cards are perfect for cutting out the parts of the model. The cards are printed on carefully chosen paper selected to make it simple to cut and fold, so a six year old can achieve it while still ensuring the assembled models look sturdy.

Discover further what each type of cards stands for.


WHAT'S IN A NAME.

The title card carries a name of the building on one side - use it for standing your finished model on.

The reverse side of the card shows a short dialogue between Foxe and Troo - they are discussing fun things about the building they are visiting.

Continue with reading about the Foxe & Troo cards.


MEET THE CHIEF BUILDERS.

First cut the porcupine figures out. Then score and fold along the green dotted line and glue parts together. Foxe and Troo will be glad to help you with the rest of the building process.

Continue with reading about the blueprint cards.


YOUR LICENSE TO BUILD.

The blueprint cards have two sides that are aligned very precisely:

1 - on the front side you will find graphics of all the exterior details - like doors, windows, balconies, roofs etc.
2 - on the reverse sides of the cards the cutting and folding patterns are printed.

As the graphics and the cutting pattern are printed on two different sides, it makes it easy to focus on cutting the parts out smoothly and precisely, as well as following the guidelines to assemble the model correctly. The main bonus with our design is the lack of written guidelines on display on your finished masterpiece, as they are on the reverse of the cards.

Numbers on both sides of the blueprint cards ease the assembling of the model - just follow the sequence.

Continue with reading about the brand graphics.


GAME OF COLOURS.

Cartoon-like freehand graphics and a playful palette of vibrant colours make the buildings appear alive.

Black borders define the edges, sometimes they make an illusory appearance of the shapes.

Yellow's role is simple yet important - it shows you where the glue should be applied.

Continue with the fine print.


FINE PRINT IS FINE, TOO.

No fancy tools are needed - just scissors, a pen, a ruler and a glue stick (we recommend a solvent-free green SCOTCH stick).

All the parts of the kit, including the package, are made from materials that are safe for children, non-toxic, environment friendly and conform to EN71, ASTM F963 and CPSIA 2008 safety requirements.

We recommend the kits for anyone aged 6 to 99. Please be aware that the kit is not suitable for children under 6 years! The assistance of an adult may be advisable for 6-10 year olds.

That's all folks! Happy building:)
