*The Master Plan

Many of Papemelroti's customers since the 70's will remember a plaque of ours that says "Plan ahead, it wasn't raining when Noah built his ark."

As 2013 kicks off, some of us may be making new year's resolutions and plans.  And some of us may be taking on a more free-spirited approach like actor John Cusack.  He once said "I'm not making any plans. I'm just going to let the universe surprise me.”  READ MORE

*Artistory: The Drawing Room

2012 was a busy year for our Papemelroti artists.  More than 180 product lines, each with several designs, have been produced and distributed to all the shops.

A sneak peek at some of the most current work of Papemelroti artists are seen at left.  These are fresh from their drawing rooms and you might see them on some products in the coming months.

*Resellers' Corner: Have you Got What it Takes?

Alvin never needed an allowance from his parents.  At the time when most of us were thinking only about toys and playing games, Alfred was already into buy and sell at his school.  He would even display his wares at the front doorstep of his home.  READ MORE
