The aim of Mibo's popular make-them-yourself paper animals is to provide young people with a fun way to develop their fine motor skills. The animals are bought as flat templates and can be made into their 3D shapes with some cuttting, gluing and sticking. Madeleine made the kits available either as pdf downloads or as actual physical kits, printed locally on 100% post-consumer waste paper.
In 2012 Mibo collaborated with the World Wildlife Fund to create a special set of critically endangered animals, along with fact sheets about what needs to be done to help them. Mibo designed the animals, packaging and accompanying info sheets.
Many of the mibo paper animals are now available as free downloads from the mibo website.
