Format: Paperback
My 10 year old son loves this book. He has had it over a year (so got it at just 9). He is creative, the origami type so it is his thing anyway but other children coming to the house, not so into paper art enjoy it too. But if you do have a child that enjoys origami or other paper art this is the book for them. Hours of cutting, folding etc.. and the cutest little toys as a result. So you look at the book and if there is a paper toy of interest most of the time it is on the CD to print out (we use the CD on a windows platform, not sure about mac) Any of the projects print on one sheet of paper only...so not sheets and sheets for one item. If a paper toy that is in the book is not on the CD my son tells me you can go to a website and find it there. I have not counted but plenty on the CD anyway. WE have taped or pasted the little toys standing on to a piece of card as a greeting card and friends/teachers seem to like them. This book and a small pointed, scissors would make any parent or child very happy.

Format: Paperback
There is no indication of which projects pictured in the book are on the CD. There are no previews of the projects on the CD. Some of the ones I looked at didn't even show what the final toy would look like. You have to print out and cut out which projects you want to do, which compared to other books of this type, is a huge pain. Other books, like Papertoy Monsters (Papertoy Monsters Make Amazing Papertoys have the body parts all perforated and easy to punch out. That book is waaayyyy better than this book.
