A is for Animals

O isn't just for orangutan--it's for origami, in this kid-friendly book designed around the letters of the alphabet and their easy-to-build animal equivalent. Easy-to-follow instructions and vibrant paper pre-scored with fold marks help creative minds turn "E" into an elephant, "W" into a whale, and 24 more wildly educational projects. Book features all 26 letters of the alphabet and 26 origami animal projects. Instructions included. No scissors, glue, or origami experience needed. Made in China.

              The nine year girl I bought this for loved it, and said it was her favorite present. The adults in the room all wanted a peek at it and everyone was intrigued. At first it looks like a preschool-age book, but I think the skill level is 10-14 at least, as it involves some very technical paper folding. Can't wait to see her menagerie once she has created all the animals! this was a wonderful find.

                I gave this as a gift to my sister. She had a lot of fun with it. She said a few of the animals weren't really true to form but the rest were fun and attractive.

                  Very cute! I bought this for my niece as a Christmas present - I hope she doesn't find it too hard to put together. Some of the designs looked pretty difficult to assemble. Also, some of the general directions for the indiviual designs were in the back of the book - these directions applied to all of the designs but it was a little confusing. I haven't sat down and work with her on it yet so I'll have to see what she says...

                      This is a very unique and crafty gift that allows me to spend time with my niece. Each animal has a different story to it and can provide hours of one on one play time.

                          This is a GREAT unique way for children to learn by interaction. There's not a lot of designs like that anymore

                          Looks cute, and decently priced. I hope it comes with instructions on how to make the animals without the pre-scored paper, or else this book would be useless after 26 uses.

                          Molly

                          Love it! Kids are involved and being creative. Hopefully, instructions for creating after pre-scored pages are included for future use, but at this price point you can buy two!

                          Great way to introduce kids to origami! Excellent price point for 26 projects.

                          I would definitely buy something like this for $10. In fact, I'd probably buy several and give them as gifts!
