This is a great buy if your child is an origami Jedi master. I am an ADULT Jedi knight and I had a ton of trouble folding the paper this way and that way. The diagrams must be written in some ancient Sith dialect because I was feeling anger and hatred for folding square sheets of paper because ABSOLUTELY NONE of my origami looks like any of the pictures on the page. My Bobba Fett looks like he was finished coming out of the back end of the Saarlac and not movie quality like the pictures show. On top of that my fingers have so much cuts on them the guys at the academy were beginning to ask if I had a problem. I don't.

Overall the origami almost turned me and I had seriously thought of leaving the academy and my light saber behind.

I really wanted to like this book. My son LOVES all things Star Wars and origami. So we thought this would be a wonderful gift for him. However, besides the various lightsabers, all other projects were WAYYYYY too difficult for him. Even with adult help! I agree with many of the other reviewers in that the instructions are almost unreadable and not nearly descriptive enough. My son (and I) got very frustrated and disappointed with almost every project. This may be a good book for an experienced origamist(?), however, I HIGHLY discourage purchasing this book for anyone that's younger than a teenager if they aren't already extremely experienced at origami.

I bought this book for my son as a stocking stuffer for Christmas. He is 8 years old and a voracious Lego builder. I know that origami is a bit different, but the instructions really are too difficult for a boy under the age of 10. I even had trouble with some of the more advanced folds. Great idea, but not expect that a young kid will be able to pick it up right away.

This wasn't quite what I was expecting. Personally, I like origami that can be done and redone with any kind of origami paper. Relying on specific PRINTING on the paper to "complete" the look of the finished piece, feels like a cop-out. The entire book does just that - and there are only two sheets for each design. So once that's done - you're done. Granted there are a LOT of designs - but something more reusable would have been nice.

If we hadn't already removed and used a few pages to try make some of the origami projects, I would return this. The origami creations are cool, but the directions are pretty hard to follow and the items don't seem to look nearly as good as they do in the book once completed.

My husband really liked this Christmas gift, but he has reported that some of the projects are pretty difficult and the organization of the book doesn't make much sense. The projects are not in order of difficulty or sorted by type. Still it is a very cool concept!

everything i hoped it would be!
the only problem i see is that it seems that a few pages are missing from the very back, the papers given so the projects would end up looking like they are supposed to. each project is supposed to have two pages per, but there were only one for some of them. i thought i'd purchased a new copy, but i might have gotten a used one, which is why it was missing pages. i'll have to look. it's not a huge deal, just something i noticed.
i've only done a few of the projects, but i like reading the excerpts of the characters to my kids. you can only read Are You My Mother so many times before you want to burn the book, so i took to star wars. it, of course, never let me down. there's nothing cuter than three toddlers trying to sound like darth vader, or pretending to duel with lightsabers. and i learned some things about the characters and ships i didn't know before. there are also a few little quizzes in the pages.
all in all, a very fun book. i don't know why others didn't like it. my guess is they've never done origami before. i've found youtube to be full of all kinds of educational videos, i'd suggest going there if you ever get confused. i don't know if there would be videos of this book and its projects exactly, but the folds and the names of the folds are the same, so actually watching it would be 1,000x more helpful than instructions on a page. that's almost always true.
happy folding!!

Book is good in theory as it contains many of the Star Wars characters and ships along with origami paper in the back of the book. The problem is that the projects are too difficult for children ages 9 and up along with some adults. Most of the projects have confusing directions and do not follow a logical pattern. I would not recommend this for anyone other than someone who is skilled at origami!

Origami never seemed so hard. Me, my husband and my stepson (Age:9) struggled with the simple structures. I would say this is for the advanced origami person.

I want to preface this review by saying I know nothing about origami, and I gave this as a Christmas gift to a girl who really enjoys origami. This review is not based on much first hand experience, but the experience of giving it as a gift.

She already knew a lot about the different types of folds and terminology used in origami, so she didn't need to read the tutorials, though they were provided. She just jumped in, however, she never did sci-fi origami, so she found it fascinating since she loves star wars, and she also found these challenging. The book provides the paper so when you are done it looks like the character or object. She taught me about origami using this book and going over the different folds and techniques. She's happy and made a few of them and they turned out great. No flaws found, item and results are exactly as described, advertised and expected.
