Theme --- Handcraft for grown-ups
Piperoid Characters is a series of easy-to-make handcraft kits, evolving from our knowhow in "Hinemos Kit" and enabling busy grown-ups to enjoy the fun of handcraft momentarily. No glue needed, all joints movable, pose it at your desk or let it carry your memo. "To create" is an indispensable act of human life but, unfortunately, we have less and less access to it --- the opportunity to create --- as we grow up. Piperoid Characters, handcrafts for grown-ups, is the best that you can find to enrich your life.

Simple, but Deep
The ANIMALS series propose and present you a completely new style and experience in paper craft artwork. In each of the ANIMALS package, you will find 2 types of paper pipes differing in thickness. Just by putting these pipes together, you will create a very unique piece of animal figure.
What are the indispensable points to include so as to make this lion look undoubtedly real? Which body lines must be captured in order to best depict this penguin? Through subsequent quests of answers to all the questions alike, through weeks after weeks of trial and error, we are honored to witness the birth of the PIPEROID ANIMALS world, with you.

"Self-made" nurtures love
Self-decorated photo albums, stitched stuffed dolls....Things made by yourself somehow look more adorable than others. Only because we made them by our own hands, we cherish them more and longer.
"2 in 1"
One package, two characters, doubled fun! The FRIENDS series is a comparatively handy version which pays much attention to the easiness in assembling the pieces, enabling not only busy adults but also little kids to enjoy fully the moments of handcrafting.
