I was invited to the launch of Jomike Tejido’s Foldabots Toy Book 3 last Nov. 7, 2010 at Powerbooks in Greenbelt.
For the uninitiated, Foldabots are Philippine-themed DIY (Do-It-Yourself) robots which are assembled from cardboard cut-outs. You get one (1) Foldabot in every issue of K-Zone Magazine. My son is a K-Zone subscriber and this is actually one of the things he looks forward to every month. Foldabots were created by Jomike Tejido.
The highlight of the book launch was the Foldabot-making contest, which came in two parts. The first one was the best assembly of the yellow Foldabot called Sundo (Sundo is “fetch” or “pick up” in English).
These are the parts you need to assemble Kuwago, all you need in addition are scissors and glue. Just cut the parts out, fold along the dotted lines, and glue them all together to form the Foldabot. There are complete statistics and a list of powers and abilities printed on the bottom of the page too.
