ActionCraft Toy Box : The "Create Your Own Paper Toy" App!

$10,219

We are parents. So this project was born because we noticed that kids these days can be "glued" to their gadgets and mobile devices more than they should be. They don't get dirty playing outside anymore, argue at the dinner table nor make things with their hands using their creativity and imagination. They are totally missing out, right?! 

We at Taktyl Studios believe that the joy and excitement a child gets from building something with their own hands is pure MAGIC!  And sharing this experience with their parents and friends is PRICELESS! Where can they get this nowadays?  

Our answer to that is ActionCraft Toy Box! 

Paper Toy Action Figures + Arts and Crafts = ActionCraft! 

ActionCraft Toy Box is an arts and crafts mobile application that provides tools for anyone to design their own paper toy action figure on a mobile gadget. The app allows users to select from a variety of paper toy models, customize their selection any way they want, print out their design with any home printer, and assemble it by hand!  SO EASY and FUN! 

WHAT DO WE HAVE SO FAR:  

With the current version of ActionCraft Toy Box, you can: 

  • Choose from a collection of character paper toy models.
  • Customize the selected paper toy template using various textures.
  • Send the final design to your email address or wireless printer.

WHAT WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT FOR: 

We think the current version of ActionCraft is awesome, but we would like to add more features so you can enjoy it even more. We need your help to make that happen!  

If we get enough backing from the Kickstarter community (THAT'S YOU), we're going to use the support to add the following features:   

NEW FEATURE #1: DRAWING TOOLS

Create your own graphic textures for your models! This feature gives you more control over how your toy will look like after you assemble it.

NEW FEATURE #2: GLOBAL TOY GALLERY

So that you, through the app, can upload your paper toy designs and share them with other ActionCrafters around the world.

We're not asking you to back just any app. We're asking you to back an app that is fantastic for YOUR KIDS!!  So join us and be part of our dream to provide our children with tools that encourages fun, creativity and bonding time with friends and family! 

REWARDS

In exchange for your support, we'll show our appreciation through the following rewards depending on your pledge amount. 

STRETCH GOALS 

Just to make ActionCraft Toy Box even better, whenever we reach special milestones, we'll add more models to that default list and then some. This means you'll have more options to choose from and work with. 

$20,000 Image Importer: We'll add another feature. This one allows you to import images from your mobile device gallery.  

$30,000 The Color Picker: We'll include a new feature that allows you to change the shade or hue of a pre-made texture. This means you can edit a red jacket and turn it into blue or green one if you want to.

$40,000 Texture Pack: We'll include 10 additional sets of pre-made textures.

$50,000 Model Pack: Currently we have 4 models that you can choose from not including the basic starter model i.e. Knight, Sorceress, Soldier, and Tech Girl. Unlocking the model pack means you get 10 more models to choose from. What those characters will be will be determined through voting. 

We'll add more stretch goals as needed. If you have any suggestions, just message us to let us know and we'll see if we can accommodate your ideas! Let's craft with ActionCraft!

Risks and challenges

Taktyl Studios is the creative team behind the www.papertoyadventures.com blog and the "Construct Your Own Paper Robots" craft book. We've been designing paper toys for years, and we just want you to be able to design and share your own ideas along with us. Our only obstacle at this point is funding to improve what we have of the app so far.

We started this Kickstarter campaign this June. Once it is successfully funded, we'll be able to start working on the new features, models, and textures in August and finish everything just in time for Christmas. With your support, we'll be able to complete the best paper toy creation tool ever.

    Based on your character concept (which you'll share with us) we'll prepare a custom paper toy and texture. This means you get to decide which "props" your character gets to have (whatever we can fit in 1 sheet of paper).

    Your custom toy will be included in the "choose a model" screen and you get to name it (appropriately please) as well as receive credit as the designer of that character.
