During a visit to Polin (Museum of the History of Polish Jews) this fall, I noticed the section dedicated to kids’ toys also presented some paperfolding. The models displayed are all traditional models such as Cap, Paper Boat, and Banger (here, labeled Noisemaker) that are still being folded today. As far as I know, these pieces are not preserved old models, but recently folded, though as you can see, they are made from sheets of newspapers printed in Yiddish, material likely to be used by Jewish kids in pre-war Warsaw.
