    Very disappointing

    My daughter loves this kind of thing so I was excited to purchase this book for her. Almost all of the designs require a considerable number of towels along with other items like safety pins, felt, paper, etc. The few designs that can be created with only one or two towels look lame or don't work at all (at least without starch or something else to hold them in place) and I haven't bothered with the rest. Origami isn't the right description when so much else is required.

    Fun and Creative Activity

    Our daughter received this book as a gift and is having alot of fun creating the clever characters and creatures. Using props and different colored and patterned towels adds to the creativity.
