About this project

Hi! Tyler Tinsley here, a professional toy and game designer. I have worked with some big names and even a few personal heroes, as great as it's been I want to try projects that are just too risky or off the wall for publishers.

That's why i'm doing this kickstarter, if successful I will mail this pre-cut paper craft kit to your door ready for assembly, you don't even need glue.

This mouse is an homage to the great genre of rodentia youth literature, These books were the first ones that made me want to read growing up and I want to celebrate their effect on my literacy. If this mouse proves popular I will expand the "heros of rodentia" line with other historical periods, possibly making roman or samurai mouse figures.

It's only 5 dollars to have the kit mailed to you, I'm also offering some limited specials, if they sell out I will think up some more high end packages. As the funding reaches past the initial goal the mouse will gain extra weapons and equipment options.

Check out some of my older free papercraft kits at papercrafted.com 

This project is just the tip of the iceberg, if successful I want to start a new line of papercraft toys and relaunch papercrafted.com !

This kick starter will fund the purchase of a digital cutter, this will be used to cut your kits but it will also speed up development of future kits.

If we reach over the funding goal I will include extra weapons with the kit!

$500 The Axe

The mouse will receive an extra arm with a ripped sleeve holding an imposing axe.

$750 The Archer

the mouse will receive an alternate set of arms holding a bow and arrow

$1000 Silver Helmet

A glorious silver helm to protect the mouse.

$10,000 Full plate armor

Everyone will get a second mouse in full plate armor for no additional cost

NEW REWARD the legendary hero!

FAQ

  • Depends on the funding. Digital cutters range from $200 to much much more. The lower priced machines are not easy to work with but it's something I have researched in depth.

    Specifically I'm looking at the silhouette sd if the minimum funding is reached. if funding goes completely bonkers and I get a few grand I will look at the higher end printer plotters that can be found in sign shops across america. with one of those i could build a paper craft planet!

    I lust for this machine! http://www.rolanddga.com/products/printcut/lec300/ imagin physical textures for papercraft, you could feel the little mouses fur!
