|Famous woodblock print: A Magician Turns Sheets of Paper to Birds|
|An impossible object?|
Conjunction is a remarkable effect with a very simple description. You take one of your business cards, give it a series of folds and tears, and in the process transform it into an impossible object: two unbroken cardboard rings that end up linked through one another.
So, you may ask, what sets Conjunction apart from the multitude of other effects that have bits of card linking together? Simple: You do it for real.
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!
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!).

I wonder if the Founder, Danny Resnic, has actually done any origami?Latex condoms were first introduced around 1918, just 15 years after the Wright Brothers' first successful flight at Kitty Hawk. Airplane technology has advanced to a landing on the moon and another on Mars while the condom has essentially remained the same.Today, almost 100 years later, condom technology has now advanced with radical re-design ideas, new materials, and significant functional changes for the 21st century. Three patented silicone innovations began US clinical trials in the fall of 2011, with clinical research funding from the National institutes of Allergies and Infectious Disease, and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.

26 wonderful horse-themed models from John Montroll and an international group of contributors. Models range from mythical (Pegasus, Unicorn, Centaur) to useful (Horse Bookmark and Pop-Up Horse Card) to various horse breeds (Quarter Horse, Clydesdale, Mustang, Lippizzan). There are easier models (Stick Horse, Simple Pony, Ponytail Pony) and more complex models, such and a painted horse that uses both sides of the paper to achieve the color effect, and a horse and rider from a single sheet. All models are folded from one square sheet of uncut paper, except for one horse folded from a dollar bill. Each diagram includes interesting facts on the model. Color photos and color diagrams with helpful text descriptions.
