Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Storygami comes in a lovely box that turns into awesome storage for papers and booklet. Moreover, the presence of a video and story immediately brings down anxiety as if it wasn't all about the beauty and precise folds because that is why kids shy away from origami." —Toys Are Tools blog

"I have always been fascinated by the art of Origami. I am also not that great at it...until now. I am still not an expert, but with Story-gami, I was able to share this fun and exciting art form with my daughter. Story-gami is a fantastic way to not only learn the art, but tell a story." —Product Mommy blog
