Reviews - What do customers think about Origami for Playtime?
good collection origami, but difficult to follow the instructions Aug 28, 2007
I bought this book for my 5 year old and my friends' kids. We're very exciting to try any of them, but the instruction is difficult to follow even for me as an adult. And you have to buy your own origami paper too.
Not the best book for beginners May 10, 2005
The book is full of bright ideas. However, I would not recommend it for the people who just start doing origami. The author sometimes skips a step so it is very confusing. I left some projects unfinished.
