Joel Stern and Tuttle have produced yet another great contribution that's sure to draw more people into the world of paperfolding magic.
"My First Origami Kit" is handsomely packaged and more than reasonably priced for the amount of stuff you get back: Instructions to 20 fun models that are mostly non-traditional, a packet of paper with original printing, and stickers to enhance the models.
This could be your 2nd or 27th origami kit, and you will still want to add this to your library collection for the quality of work that went into this. Perfect gift for birthdays and for the holidays.
Joel Stern is a wonderful, generous origami teacher and designer. If you've never done origami before, Joel will get you hooked with this kit. If you have done origami before and are looking for something a step "above" traditional models, this is the next stage. If you are an advanced folder who also teaches, you'll immediately recognize the charm in these...
I've always loved origami, but have found many other books to be difficult to follow. With this kit, I was able to make great looking models on the first try! The directions are easy to understand and even include fun tips to make the models move, or to give the animals extra "personality". The models come out looking great thanks to the beautiful patterned paper and stickers that are custom made for each model, which means that even as a beginner, I ended up with life-like creations. This kit is great for kids, or for adults like me with "two left thumbs." Definitely recommend!
My First Origami Kit is a lovely way to introduce origami to children or all those who are young at heart.
What I love about this Kit:
* The step-by-step instructions combine photographs and standard origami symbols to make them very easy to follow.
* Twenty origami models are included in a small-size book that is easy to carry in your pocket or purse.
* There is an assortment of models, some traditional and some of the author's creation. Some of the models are toys, but most are animals.
* My First Origami Kit can be used as a lovely way to introduce children to the animal kingdom, and the concepts of reptiles, mammals, birds and insects, as all these categories are represented in this book.
* A particular model I'd like to highlight is a Teddy Bear that "talks" when you open and close its arms. It also folds flat and can be attached to a greeting card. Hint: Having instructions for this model alone is worth the prize...
