Format: Paperback
This book has 32 very cute (kawaii) paper toys that you can make which are perfect for a small cube shelf which needs some fun. Paper toys are literally toys you make out of paper, and they differ from origami in using scissors, tape or glue.

Each toy template is laid out on a heavily designed page, with a different and complementary design on the back side of the page. This is terrific because every facet of the toy has a design that leads to its cuteness, and it makes you feel like you're getting more for the money. (Unlike other paper toy books where you're flipping through and there's white on the back side of every page). Some of the photos were so-so, however, the toys ended up super cute every time. What's great about this title is that when you're done making the toys in the book (or if you don't want to destroy this tremendously cute book), the publisher includes an url to download the templates for free.

Paper Wonderland is divided into chapters which are themed out:
* Neighborhood: House, Kids, Umbrellas, Toaster (love it!), Camera
* Forest: Trees & Mushrooms, Gnome, Apple mobile, Bear, Owl, Bunny, Mustaches (a bit of a random insert)
* Ocean: Pirate Ghost, Whale, Octopus (karate-style!), Turtle, Treasure Box, Hermit Crab, Parachute Note
* Jungle: Leafy Fan, Elephant, Monkey, Alligator, Tiger, Giraffe, Airplane
* City: Burger, Skyline (very easy), Car, Bed with a Sleepy Sloth

The author (illustrator?) did a terrific job with this book -- I flipped through it for several days just looking at the designs before making any toys.

This book is perfect if you like little toys that are quick to make, or to give as a gift to a graphic designer.

Format: Paperback
The first thing you're going to think when you open Paper Wonderland is "I would really hate to cut up these pages." The book is presented more like an art book than a papercraft book - even the backs of the template pages have neat wallpaper-like patterns. The good news is you can download the templates and print your own copies, allowing you to make the toys while keeping your book intact - win/win!

Cover to cover, Paper Wonderland is ridiculously cute. The toys are skillfully and cleverly designed and each one has thorough instructions that make building fun and easy. In each chapter of the book takes you on an adventure through a different part of "Paper Wonderland," making the book feel like much more than just a collection of activities. In each chapter you'll meet new characters and make new friends, and the more toys you build, the more you'll feel like you're bringing a little paper world to life. Be careful, though, the toys definitely have a "just one more" quality and before you know it you'll be burning the midnight oil and running out of shelf space.

What really stands out about Paper Wonderland is the fantastic design. The designer/author, Michelle Romo, seems influenced by cute, Kawaii style Japanese art without seeming derivative. Her designs are creative and fresh and she has an amazing eye for color. Her attention to detail is also impeccable, and it all adds up to a very complete-feeling, beautifully presented book.

But most of all, the book is just really, really of fun. The toys themselves range in complexity, making it good source for family projects, even if the kids are different ages. The toys are all so neat you'll want to give them names and make up little stories about their lives.

My kids (4yrs and 2 yrs old) enjoyed the fun, although i am the one doing like 80% of the job.
Inexpensive and fun... Highly recommended.
if you are at it, get the papertoy monsters too, it is comparatively better, and complement with this book.

The paper toys are really cute and creative. They're not really meant for little hands though. They require precise cutting and sometimes using a razor. Older kids that have better dexterity with cutting and folding can handle these. Little kids still enjoy watching them being put together. To make them last longer and allow other kids to do the same project, I scanned and printed out the pages. You might need to be creative with some of the projects in putting them together in a way that works for you, e.g. the elephant trunk. I also used glue dots instead of the recommended tape or glue and I think it works out a lot better. But overall, very fun to do when you're stuck indoors.

If you are thinking of buying this_ don't! Buy PaperToy Monsters and save 3 dollars and your sanity. Papertoy Monsters uses better paper, punches out, has more toys and the tabs are numbered and precise. You cannot miss. Paper Wonderline has to be cut out. It is a pain and unless you are an engineer with an exacto knife you are in for some disappointments.

I loved playing with paper dolls as a kid, and this book puts those simplistic tabbed dolls to shame! Its definitely hard to commit to the first cut as the book itself is so cute and beautiful, but its worth it! These designs are really unique and creative and makes you realize the potential of simple things such as a sheet of paper. There are tons of different themes to choose from and its a great activity for an adult and child to do together. I made some of these with a 9 year old and she loved it. They are sturdy and cute once built and can make for fun decorations in a kids room (or an adults :). Would be a great and unique book to give to crafty individuals, adults and kids alike!
