5.0 out of 5 stars Folding Frenzy!, August 9, 2012
This review is from: Star Wars Origami: 36 Amazing Paper-folding Projects from a Galaxy Far, Far Away.... (Paperback)
It's a folding frenzy in my house!!

My two young Jedis are already pros at folding an Origami Yoda and Origami Vader, thanks to Tom Angleberger's books, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back. In fact there is a foreward by Tom Angelberger in which refers to himself as a Padawan, and Chris Alexander as the Jedi Master of Star Wars Origami.

As the Master will probably tell you, in order to make one of the 36 - yes, 36 - Star Wars origami figures in the book, you need to go over some of the basics. My young Jedis thought they could skip over this training chapter and jump right into folding the Millenium Falcon. Ten minutes later two very frustrated boys came up to me begging for my help. It takes more than the force to make a good paper light saber!

A fun book for the whole family, there are different levels of difficulty in the book. In the Index, there is a list of project separated by level of difficulty - starting with Han Solo, moving to Chewbacca, and eventually working toward a Naboo Starfighter.

One thing that makes STAR WARS ORIGAMI so special - aside from the obvious Star Wars connection - is the paper. In the back of the book, there are specially designed paper to use along with each folding project. There are two sheets of paper to go with each project. See the Boba Fetts up there? If they were folded with just white paper they would still be neat, no doubt, but how cool are they with their special paper?? Awesome, right?

Needless to say, we love this book.

Can I ask how old your boys are? My Jedi is 8 and had a friend at school that introduced him and taught him origami, so he is familiar with some of it. Based on some of the reviews, I want to make sure this book isn't more for an older age group? Thanks!

May I ask a question, please? What size are the finished projects?
