Help vote for the next Paper City!

Hi everyone. I would love to hear your opinion on choices for the next Paper City!

A vote has started on the Facebook Page, but you can vote here in the comments as well!

So far the top cities are:

London – 45 votes
Barcelona – 40
Rome – 26
Amsterdam – 14
San Francisco – 14
New York – 11
Sydney – 10
Tokyo – 10

UPDATE: After adding up all of the votes from everywhere, London is the winner, followed very closely by Barcelona! So I will do both – starting with London!

It takes longer than one might expect to design everything, but it’s a very fun process. I will keep everyone updated and share sketches along the way.

Thanks for voting! And I plan to do many more cities after these!

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    London, no question. I'm from Germany, and I think if you just can visit one european City, than take London. It would be so lovely to see my Boys playing with London.

    Hello, dear Joel. My name is Irina and I'm 14 years old. I can't speak English very well because I'm from Russia. I think that your toys for kids are great! It's very interesting to look your works! I think that the next paper city must be a London! I'm sorry if my text has mistakes. Thanks a lot! Bye-bye!

    1. July 21, 2014 at 8:55 pm

      Hi Irina. Thanks for writing! Your English is excellent! And yes, I'm doing London for the next Paper City, so you're in luck. Have a great day!

    Hey Joel, my kids and I love your design and fun projects. Your coloring sheets and paper cities have been with us on every boat trip for the last three years! Thanks so much for sharing. If you are finished with London and Barcelona, maybe Berlin would also be an option? It's such a great city to live! Thanks, Uli

    1. July 25, 2014 at 7:23 pm

      Hi Uli! Wow that's so cool! I love taking boat trips! I'm proud my paper cities have gone on the trips with you. Nice! And yes, a Berlin Paper City would sure be fun too. I'll Out it on the list of options. It's going to take awhile though to finish London and Barcelona. Thanks again for writing!
