I bought this book on a whim -- I wanted a quiet indoor activity that my 7 year old niece and my mom could do together. My niece absolutely LOVED this book. She was old enough to know how to read, and young enough to enjoy doing little crafty projects -- I think that's a key combination to how much a child will like this book. She could figure out the directions herself, and she and my mom spent a few hours making the projects in the book. Later, she reused some of the pipe cleaners to make up her own projects.
All in all, this book kept her occupied for several hours over the weekend. I expect that she's still having fun with it -- we bought her a stack of pipe cleaners from the local craft store.
I HIGHLY recommend this book -- it's not messy or noisy, kids like it, they can follow the book or use their imaginations, they can do the projects independently or in a small playgroup, and buying more pipe cleaners is very inexpensive -- a few dollars gets you several packets. I bet it would be a great activity for kids taking long car trips, or for rainy-day fun.
My _ONLY_ critique of this book is that they should give enough pipe cleaners for TWO of each project, instead of for just one. That way, if a child wants to play with another person, each one can make the same item. The cost of doing so should be quite small, as the the pipe cleaners are really cheap, but even if it raised the book cost by another dollar or two, it would be worth it!

I bought this book for my son,who just turned 8. He had wanted to make animals out of pipe cleaners, they had done this at school. He really liked this book. I liked it because it comes with enough pipe cleaners to make everything in the book. It really does! The pictures are step by step and really clear. We had a lot of fun with this book.

Not stupid or childish. The best pipe cleaner craft book I've been able to find. Projects were eagerly tried and many time recreated. More then sunglasses and jewerly. The book you want if you're looking for pipe cleaner crafts!!

Firstly, its pictures render it appealing to boys & girls of all races. [I'm sending my copy to a 10 year old boy in Nepal.] It is not geared to little girls who want to make pretty decorative things.
Also, it very clearly lays out with self-explanatory pictures and a few words how you can create different kinds of shapes and how those, in turn, can be joined to create a variety of animals, flowers, etc. It's exactly what any person could use to unleash their creativity with pipe cleaners.
Also, it's a sturdy book that a very young child could easily physically handle.

A friend brought me these after I had a severe accident. I had several broken bones, including a broken arm with nerve damage. The little creatures were fun to make and working with the pipe cleaners was wonderful therapy without feeling like I was doing PT work. Tho this kit is hard to find, if you can get your hands on just the book, then buy the pipe cleaner seperately at a craft store. It's hours of mindless fun for recouperating adults!

He is very big into arts and crafts and DIY projects, and he had been eyeing a similar book in store. Bonus that I didn't realize from the book photo: it actually came with some pipe cleaners to start projects.

I bought this book for my Sunday school class. We needed some quiet activities for those who like to fidget. Works great - very constructive too and easy to follow directions. We're planning all sorts of bulletin board decorations.
