Joel Stern's My First Origami Kit

Joel Stern's most recent origami book:

My First Origami Kit is the perfect introduction to the joys of origami for kids of all ages. Featuring sheets of stickers along with folding paper, this kit is sure to keep them engaged and happy for hours!

Included are whimsical origami penguins, foxes, pigs, airplanes and more—even a cute teddy bear that "talks" when you open and close its arms. All of the papers are colorfully decorated on both sides with a different design for each of the 22 models! There are feathers for the duck, metal plates for the airplane, scales for the cobra, and so on. In most cases, it doesn't even matter which side of the paper kids use—they'll still end up with a great-looking model!

Kids will love to add sticker details to their models—eyes, noses, paws, and many other cute features. They can make the finished models look as silly or as serious as they want. Your child will proudly display the finished handiwork—their very first origami!

Projects include:
  • Diablo the Cobra
  • Clarence the Mouse
  • Magic Box
  • Barkley the Sea Lion
  • Edward Elephant
  • Cootie Catcher
  • Soaring Sam
Tuttle Publishing has done a handsome job with the packaging of this and extremely well priced for what you get.  Very eye-catching and should hold great appeal to kids of all ages (yes, including you 70 year old kids out there!).

My favorite model in the book might be the teddy bear (shown in the upper left corner in this photo montage of models Leyla Torres folded at Convention).  Joel taught it to us at POP, earlier this year I think it was.
