Cardboard Stick Horse
Focus on engaging trend and design into classic toy categories. I designed my products with the purpose and goal of creating toys that inspire creativity, and providing a unique experience among kids and parents. The most satisfying part is that people embellish to make their own toys.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Make it your own Polypony(from polygon and pony) cardboard stick horse, a fantastic resource to encourage role play and stimulate a child's imagination. It is an inventive and playful DIY toy you can make with kids. Parents and children have an opportunity to participate in the process by folding, matching the edges with corresponding number and embellishing the final form.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Polypony stick horse comes with a simple-to-build kit. It consists of a cardboard sheet and a paper tube. The instruction is easy to follow, just folding, matching up the numbers on the template and glue together the edges with corresponding number. It can be assembled by anyone.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Different assembly methods explored during June - September 2015, Thailand.
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Polypony stick horse was meticulously developed on a computer then cut and engraved on a CNC router. The materials are cardboard sheets and paper tubes. They are environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 32cm x Depth 14.5cm x Height 89cm

The research for Polypony stick horse was largely focused on paper tests and production techniques. I tested on many different folding patterns and different thickness of papers to achieve the intended result.
In the process of developing a horse-shaped head, I designed a low polygon form in order to simplify the form and details. So that all could fit on one sheet of cardboard. When match up the numbers and glue together the edges, the parts will lock themselves. So that will make it strong and easy to build.
