Grrribbit!


More toilet paper roll animals from our tp menagerie.


These frogs are not only fun to make but they can provide hours of fun because they are also a toy.


After a proper amount of practice, you can
catch the fly in the large, gaping mouth.


I'm pretty sure I saw a version of them somewhere on Pinterest but try as I might, I cannot find the link.
If someone can provide me with a link, I will gladly add it here.

  4. What did you make the fly out of so that it is heavy enough to get it to work?

    1. The fly is made of two identical pieces of cardboard -cut out in the shape of a fly- glued together, sandwiching the string. The cardboard is deliberately the heavy kind so that the fly turns out heavy enough for the toy to work.
      If there's no heavy cardboard available, an idea would be to sandwich a little coin -or something else with a bit of weight to it- to make the fly heavy enough to be able to fly and drop to be caught by the frog's gaping mouth.

    1. Hi Gauri! The truth is, there's been a lot of interest in these little fellows. They are great fun to make and hours of fun to play with.
      I'll try and make a diy tutorial for it and share it.

    1. A button is a great idea, Istina!
      If it's a heavy button it will work great and if the buttons you have available aren't heavy enough, putting 2 of them together would do the trick!

    1. Jorge, sorry, I have not made a tutorial for how to make the actual frog. I think/hope it's pretty easy to follow if you carefully look at the pictures.
      To play it however, you throw up the fly and try to catch it in the frog's open mouth. It's a lot of fun!

    1. The fly is actually 2 flies that 'sandwich' the string. The 2 flies are glued together and the string is in the middle, so everything is glued together. That's how they hold the string.
      As for the string in the body of the frog, it is attached to the 'bottom' of the frog. The 'bottom' of the frog can be stapled together -as one of my frogs is in the picture- or glued together -as the other frog is in the picture. Just make sure that in both cases you trap the string with a staple or glue so that it doesn't come out.
