We’re launching the second collaboration in our Artist Play Series together with Argentinian street artist CHU. Currently living in Buenos Aires, CHU is known for his work in art, illustration, graphic design and animation. As the co-founder of the DOMA Collective, a multidisciplinary art and design group, CHU played a key role in bringing street art to Buenos Aires.
Toca Paper Creatures is a kind of puzzle of colorful pieces that can be combined in thousands of different ways to make a completely unique little creature in the style of artist CHU.
“Children have the fundamental right to play and to engage with culture and the arts,” says Jens Peter de Pedro, Play Designer here at Toca Boca. “Our collaboration with Chu encapsulates Toca Boca’s philosophy of design and playfulness. We are always exploring new ways of delivering fun play experiences that celebrate creativity and spark the imagination, even beyond the digital screen.”

Artist CHU, speaking about the Toca Paper Creatures project, also comments: “For me, art is all about play and keeping a connection to childhood. During this process I got to play with prototypes and try them out with different kids all over the world. It was really inspiring to try and keep the kids’ perspective throughout the whole process.”
Toca Paper Creatures makes the perfect gift for any child and is available in our webshop.
