I bought this for my craft-loving four year old before a vacation. She loved it so much that the first two days of our stay on a farm, she hardly went outside. She was too busy cutting out the parts to make daisy chains, finger-puppets, curly snakes, paper pets, masks etc. When she first asked me for help with gluing the parts for the daisy chain I had the sudden horrible thought that I hadn't brought tape or glue. Happily, flipping through the book I discovered at the back 100 pieces of precut tape ready to peel off and perfect for 4-year-old fingers. After that she worked completely independently and did most of the projects in the book as well as many of her own including paper dolls with daisy chain legs and arms etc. (There is lots of extra tape). She was completely entertained with this activity and the total use was 3 days (now only shreds remain). I recommend this book 100% to any craft loving four-year-old and have already bought one as a present for my daughter's best friend.

Caveat: If you want to bring this as a carry-on item you will need to cut the bag holding the scissors open first (it can only be opened with something sharp, which you won't have with you by the time the airline people take away your nail scissors!) Also, the security people examined these child-safe scissors very carefully before allowing us to take them on. They are completely blunt so they let me keep them. I would hope that all agents would be that reasonable...

We purchased this book for our four-year-old daughter for Christmas based on the glowing reviews on this site. They were right on target. Our daughter set aside her other Christmas presents and focused on this book for two DAYS (not minutes or hours). We had also bought a family game to play that was only appropriate for our older daughter and the 4-year-old was happy as a clam cutting away next to us while we played. She was able to do most of the activities completely independently, with just a little of my reading over her shoulder for a few instructions on a few tasks. Wonderful product.

I have a 4 year old daughter that I bought this book for. She is already really good with a pair of scissors, but she still really enjoyed the activites in this book. She really dives into new things like this so it took her about a day to go through everything. She had a lot of fun with it and I would defnitely recommend it for a rainy day activity or for a child that might be visiting.

My almost 5 year old will do anything to use scissors. He was very excited about getting 2 different kinds of scissors and a whole book to cut up. The straight scissors are hard for him to line up, but he doesn't really care if the lines aren't perfect. There are lots of different activities in the book and I thought this was well worth it, though we went through the book pretty quickly.

My daughter-in-law introduced me to this company. It brings all the creativity of the Fifties back into the lives of our grandchildren. I'm not a fan of the digital toys, although I confess I have bought Kindles for the 9 and 10 year old boys this year. If you see a toy or book made by Klutz this year, do not wait to buy. They produce limited quantities and then discontinue the product to bring out new ones. I sometimes pay three times what the product originally sold for just to get a specific past production item, like this one, for one of the grandchildren.

My 4 year old learned to use scissors with this book! There are so many fun projects with different degree of difficulty. We haven't finished the whole book in a day or two but rather did a project or two at a time. My daughter had fun and i noticed that she now can cut paper quite well even though she started from almost zero.

Got this for my 5 year old son - he was having trouble using scissors properly at pre-school and someone suggested this book. He has not put it down since he rec'd it for his birthday! He loves all the projects and is able to do most by himself. Same issue with tape as other mentioned - sometimes hard for him to peel off, but not really a problem. I wish there were more projects for him - this is the longest he's stayed entertained in a while!

Matthew, 4, came to stay with me for a couple of days and we had tons of fun "cutting up this book." The chain was beautiful, and there were lots of fun things to make. This book gives you hours of very worthwhile activities and really helps the young ones become proficient in using scissors.
