    Most Definitely!

    Let me start of by saying that I have actually had this set before a couple years ago. I loved it so much that when I saw it online I knew I had to get it again. It's by far one of my favorite kits. It was easy to understand great for a beginner and even good for those who have been doing origami a little more than others. This kit is a great way to spend your free time.

    Fun and satisfying!

    This is an very good origami book a nice boxed-set with loads of papers...the models are well diagramed and even the most difficult (a beautiful 3-D vase, the last model in the book) can be folded successfully with a little practice. Nothing too tricky here. The best models are the tortoise and Verdi's Vase, both are amazing in that they sort of pop-up into 3-D form during the last fold.- Good qualtity papers are included. A great value!
