Fun Paper Kirigami and Karakuri Puppets with Unexpected Behaviors by Haruki Nakamura 

Japanese designer Haruki Nakamura has a knack for creating all kinds of interesting paper objects from puzzles to kirigami toys. One of his best designs is this awesome squeezable paper puppet that reveals a sheep wearing wolf’s clothing. Also check out his penguin bomb, a type of automated paper puppet called a karakuri that has hidden inner mechanisms. Nakamura sells all of his designs in an online shop, but currently only ships within Japan. (via GIF87a, Grape)
