No, I mean it. I *love* them. Love them so much that I'm willing to spend a zillion dollars in postage to get them here in the US, because they almost never disappoint.
I'd seen the japanese version of this book, and it's been on my wishlist at amazon.jp forEVER. So when I found out there was an english version, I dove on it with the voracity of a hungry shark on chum.
And I'm definitely not disappointed. True to the japanese craft book roots, the photography is gorgeous, the projects are so cute they'll send you running ofr insulin (in a good way), and the instructions are clear and follow-able, even to a non-seamstress like myself.
If this is a trend that publishers are heading toward -- reprinting these japanese favorites in english -- then let me be the first to stand up and applaud wildly. Maybe even whoop a little. Because if this book is any indication, it's going to be a fabulous, wild ride.
The projects are addictive, fun, and cheap to make. They're full of personality and easy to customize. I've already given a few of my creations as presents and they were a huge hit.
Most important to me, her instructions for the construction of all the creatures are terrific. Several of my friends said they were the clearest instructions they'd ever seen for that kind of toy. She even shows variations on facial expressions.
It's hard not to fall in love with these little stuffed animals, and after seeing my copy, many of my students and friends have gone ahead and ordered their own. One note: If I were making these for a baby, I would embroider on the details, not use buttons...Enjoy!
Even if you don't do any of the projects the book is great to look at. It brighted my day.
My husband better lock his sock drawer before I get to it.
