The company that’s said to be the original digital paper toy creator has finally brought Paper Critters to iOS.

Paper Critters used to exist only as a Web tool that lets users create, well, paper critters. Specifically, these paper critters are little “blockheads” (in a somewhat literal sense) that may function as a toy or as a display figure.

Each of these blockheads is first conceived on a plane onscreen. This plane is then printed out and cut up, with the resulting discrete pieces pasted together to form a 3-D paper toy model aka paper critter.

And now, you can create your own paper critters (and shoot them “Harlem Shake”-style, as in the vide below) using the recently released Paper Critters for iPad, which is developed by Udonwannun.

The new Paper Critters papercraft app has the following key features:

  • Choose from themed stencil packs to personalize each toy
  • Real-time 3d preview
  • Interactive gallery
  • Print creations via Air-Print or PDF
  • Pre-saved example toys
  • Export and share your toys via email
  • Get more stencil packs as they are available via in-app purchase!

Compatible with iPad running iOS 4.3 or later, Paper Critters is available now in the App Store for $1.99.

If you’re interested in another papercraft app that’s not necessarily designed to make paper critters, check out Foldify, which was released in December last year and updated earlier this month.
