5.0 out of 5 stars Great designs, nice format, excellent price for value
I purchased this kit for the book, and was happily surprised by the quality of the paper included -- all two-colored, with solids and patterns, and larger than the 6" "standard" origami paper. Nice!

The real reason to purchase this kit is THE BOOK. This is best for those who are not exactly "beginner" origami folders, but "beginner-intermediate" -- they know...

This review is from: Origami Animals Kit: [Boxed Kit with 98 Folding Papers & Full-Color Book] (Hardcover)
I purchased this kit for the book, and was happily surprised by the quality of the paper included -- all two-colored, with solids and patterns, and larger than the 6" "standard" origami paper. Nice!

The real reason to purchase this kit is THE BOOK. This is best for those who are not exactly "beginner" origami folders, but "beginner-intermediate" -- they know they like folding, aren't ready yet for the really complex stuff, and have grown tired of the same-old traditional folds. This book has, in compact but clearly-diagrammed format, Michael G. LaFosse's bird, animal, and fish folds which I'd only previously found in his kids' Step By Step series (and good luck finding those outside a library). The presentation is straightforward to appeal to adults while being appealing, colorful, and friendly. Many of the designs -are- the author's unique creations, and one should not let their apparent simplicity mislead one into thinking them uninteresting. This is not meant to be sculpture-type origami, but the simpler sort which evokes the creature represented rather than perfectly replicating it with a paper model. The charm of origami animals is here in full!

I bought this kit for myself, but it would make an excellent gift for an adult or child who likes origami or likes animals and crafts. The book, with the paper, makes an excellent value, and the box presentation is bright and festive.

Havent opened it yet, but got it for an autistic child who can follow any directions
We enjoy getting her new craft things, she is special needs in more than one way and doesnt have the ability to think creatively or make things up, this has great directions and i think she will be very happy.
this set is also not sooooooo advanced that it will be discouraging
