Introduction: Questionable Content's Happy Little Toaster

Picture of Questionable Content's Happy Little Toaster

Questionable Content is one of my favourite web comics. I love the AI characters, and this happy little toaster is, well, one of the happiest.

I jusr had to make a model of him!

Step 1: What You Need

Picture of What You Need

Obviously, you need a copy of the template (there are a choice of formats attached - the PDF & SVG formats both have four copies of HLAIT to the page).

You also need something to cut them out, paper glue, and patience, since the glueing is a little fiddly.

Step 2: Construction Is Easy...

The actual structure of HLAIT is very simple - it's a slightly-distorted cuboid.

The easiest way to make it is to cut it out, pre-crease all the folds and then glue together the main body.

Give the glue a chance to dry before gluing the top section in place.  I found it easier to glue the edges of the top piece, rather than gluing the tiny tabs, and a cocktail stick proved very handy to poke stray tabs back into place.

Hold the top section in place for a while, and you're done - stand him on your monitor, next to your MoodMonster, or maybe they can have a game of ladder golf together...

When you've made your own Happy Little AI Toaster, please, upload a photo of him.

That toaster is so cute!

when I was younger my favorite toy was a mini toaster... but it didn't have a face...

I want to thank you Kiteman, for getting me addicted to Questionable Content. I have been enlightened.

Kiteman (author)prototype22132011-11-26

Haha, when I came across it, I spent days and days reading through it to get caught up to the current issues.

prototype2213 (author)Kiteman2011-11-26

That's what I've been doing ever since you posted this.

Kiteman (author)prototype22132011-11-27

I meant whole days, since I discovered it during a school break.

prototype2213 (author)Kiteman2011-11-27

Oh. I've been going through them for hours after school. I'm on #1066.

Kiteman (author)prototype22132011-11-27

Just over half-way (Friday's was #2065).

Found this a few weeks, stayed up all one night reading =) (it was the holidays)

I like toast.


Kiteman (author)lemonie2011-11-06

That's nice...

lemonie (author)Kiteman2011-11-06

With Marmite.
But Marmite and cheddar is better.

Gotta love Questionable Content.

Kiteman (author)Kryptonite2011-09-22

I can never think of a project that involves Pintsize, though...

Kryptonite (author)Kiteman2011-09-26

Pintsize plushy! :D

Kiteman (author)Kryptonite2011-09-27

Oh... I haven't sewn for years...

Kryptonite (author)Kiteman2011-09-28

Well, you see, that's where you're going wrong!

It wouldn't necessarily be an easy build, and as much as I'd love to I know it wouldn't turn out too well... I think we'll have to tell Jessy in on the deal!

i love QC. that little toaster is one of the greatest things. when i get a toaster, I'm painting it like that.

Mutantflame (author)2011-09-22

Grr, I try and print the PDF, just to find that my printer is temporarily not working. Watch this space, I MUST make a happy Al toaster (or four).
