What's great about the calendar: You use yesterday's page to fold today's origami. The paper is colored and has the correct size. I love it. The variety of models is wide.
What's poor: There's nothing to fold on weekends. You only get some helpful advice or basic stuff about origami. So I have nothing to do on the weekends when I'd have tons of time to try difficult folds. My husband has the paper plane calendar and he got two (!) planes to fold last weekend.
Nevertheless I'd buy the calendar again.

So, about four years ago I needed a page-a-day calendar at work and it was three weeks into the new year. So, when I went to the closest (over-priced) bookstore to see what they had, it was Origami or the Bible verse of the day...not being very religious I went with the Origami. I bought it thinking I'd never do the models and just have it on my day to know which date it is...then I started doing the models and before long the whole office was fighting over who got to do the daily models. They were fun, and helped me to entertain my young nieces once. I rate it lower because I just bought this again, and it seems like the exact same models just in a slightly different order. So, if you've never bought one of these, it's cool but if you've already worked through one it gets repetitious unless you had some sort of brain injury in the intervening years and can't remember what you did.

I have used a different origami desk calendar the past few years and wanted a change as they had become repetitive so I bought this version. To date, the folds have been fun but the paper is not your typical smooth origami-style and is not fully square. Instructions and folding techniques are very good though.

My kids enjoyed working on these for quite a while, it's not perfect, but I felt it was worth the price. The paper airplane calendar was a bigger hit, so if you are looking at both go with the paper airplanes...
