"[…] it's a big hit at my house. My First Origami Kit by Joel Stern and Tuttle Publishing. It's the perfect starter kit for those wanting to learn. There are cute animals to make, complete with paper sheets and stickers to embellish! Check it out if you too have first time origami learners!" —Makes and Takes
"This is a great introductory kit to origami—the box comes with a little booklet containing 20 simple models. Some are traditional designs, and some designed by the author or by contributors. The selected models allow slight errors, thus making them great for very young hands. The diagrams use photographs with standard origami notations drawn over them which puts them somewhere between video and drawn diagrams. Each model is accompanied by an attractive photo of the finished design. Also in the box are 2 large sheets with stickers of all kinds of eyes, mouths etc., tailor-made for the book's models. While I'm not a huge fan of decorating finished models, these will most likely find a crowd, and the models can easily stand on their own even with no outside help. Lastly, the box comes with a pack of 60 sheets of special paper. Printed on both sides with a variety of animal patterns and other designs, this paper is much better than the kind you usually see in kits like this. My daughter is now 2. This box will wait for another year or two, and I'm sure she'll love it." —Gilad's Origami Page
"This awesome kit comes with 22 different origami-for-kids projects with instructions in the full-colored instructional booklet. They are really fun projects, too. Things that kids will really like, such as animals, a magic box, vehicles and many more. The kits also comes with 150 detailed stickers. My daughter LOVES stickers … so as soon as she saw the stickers, she was all ready to start some fun projects!" —Mom Does It All
"The kit comes with everything you need which I love because you can easily take the box to go. It comes with book filled with step by step, clear instructions for 22 origami projects. The kit also comes with 60 two-sided origami sheets and 150 decorative stickers from eyes, paws and more. The instructions are very clear and perfect for my 6 year old to grasp. The origami papers are very different and fun. They come in a wide array of patterns and colors—definitely way more exciting than just a rainbow of colors you typically get in a pack of origami papers. Also, if you're like me and always going to kids' birthday parties, this kit makes a great birthday gift!" —Coquette
