the quality of the product is very very poor!
I ordered this product for my niece because she loves writing stories.
I was totally disappointed when I opened the box because of the quality of the books.
1) The pages of the book were stuck together.
2) There were glue on the pages of the edges of the book which made the pages stick together and which made the pages of the book look very untidy.
3) The pages of the book were glued unevenly - some were higher than the other.

The product was made with a lack of care - very very poor workmanship!

My 6 year old received this as a birthday present. I put off letting her take it out because I thought it would require a lot of time from me (I have 1 year old twins who I need to keep out of the way). I was completely wrong. All of the pop-up features use stickers which she could put on by herself. She colored and wrote an entire story incorporating the pop-up features. It kept her quiet and busy for 2 full hours. I highly recommend this product and I am buying 2 more kits to take out on rainy days.

Two grandsons (9 and 6) LOVE this chance to be creative and let their imaginations "flow"; bought for Christmas gifts (it's now beginning of January) and the 9-year old has his "book" 1/2-way completed and knows what he wants to do for completion. Especially good for use during school breaks (vacations, holidays).

We received this as a gift for my 5 year old daughter. The concept is wonderful, but the execution of the product is lacking for a few reasons:
1) The glue on the individual pieces of the springs and wands dried up and didn't stick - we ended up using a glue stick, which works fine.
2) We needed separate pieces of paper and scissors to add pictures to the springs. It would have been nice if they added some extra card stock for some free form drawings to add to the springs and wands. They show it in the illustration on the directions (a cut out frog on a spring,) but it's not included.
2) The ability to add the moving "wands" are only on the front page (at least on the small book - the one we made)
3) The stickers are limited and not small enough for the small book.
4) There aren't enough pop up items for every page of both books.

Overall, we made a nice book, and it was a fun project - but it was limited in it's magic. We basically made two pages of "pop-up" stuff, so it's at best a story-writing exercise with some flair of an occasional pop-up. My daughter still loved it, but I'm wondering if, for the next one, I could just buy a blank book at Michaels, and use materials around the house to make our own 3-D pages.

I bought this kit for my nephew's birthday last spring. He loved doing the books so much that he wanted more for Christmas! (I think he's working on his own library for his little brother..) The pop-ups encourage creativity with illustrating and make the pictures really stand out. A little planning goes a long way to make sure all the pages have pictures and writing..

I purchased this kit to make the books with my niece and nephew (8 and 6 at the time). I'm always looking for crafts we can do together (a little tougher with a boy in the mix). They had an absolutely great time with this. I loved watching their imaginations go wild when they realized they could make up their own books and that they were pop-ups. My niece made up a story about going on a safari and emailing the adventures to her mom. My nephew declared that he was going to write a "non-fiction story about bugs" and did just that. The great thing is, this has remained a favorite selection for bedtime reading many months later. It warms this auntie's heart to have been part of their first experience as storytellers and to know they enjoy and take pride in their creativity. I love finding gifts like this for them that really let them stretch their imaginations.

These books are great. I was worried that they would be mostly finished with just room for story writing and illustrations but you have several different options. You can add different types of popup features were you would like them to be. My 6 year old daughter loved these books and spend hours writing her books. She has since used them regularly to flip through and read. I will be gifting this again in the future.

This is a delightful book. My granddaughter who is 11 had one originally about a year ago. When I saw it I wanted one for myself. This is a fun project as well as educational. My granddaughter likes to draw as well as write. The book is very durable. I did add some more markers to use as well as those provided. She worked on the book about 2 hours a day for a week. She did illustrations as well as the story. She used the pop up pages provided as well as some originals of her own. I plan to get more for her to do as Christmas gifts. A younger child would enjoy this project even if he/she does not have the skills my granddaughter does. Thank you for a wonderful product.
