5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous 25 July 2011
By Sonia
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is a perfect gift for children from 3 to 10 y.o.. My 7 y.o. daughter spent ages building up boxes and monkey's chain.

Very well designed. Each piece is easy to assemble , no scissors are required.

From the description i was expecting great things from this and to be fair it's very pretty and nice quality card.
However, inside there is;
1 game (a quoits style game)
1 mobile (6 shapes to attach to string and suspend somehow)
1 fold out scene with partially cut car shapes and trees and buildings to fold up. nothing moves.
1 set of hanging monkeys and an elephant
2 picture frames
lots of finger puppets
14 boxes

the quoits game is nice, in a flimsy way.
the mobile is ok (i could have drawn this myself tbh).
the hanging monkeys and elephant are fun.
the picture frames are ok.
the finger puppets rip too easily and are a bit unwieldy.
the fold out scene is pointless (i may turn it into an xmas scene).
14 boxes?

this book should be called A Lot of Boxes and a Few Other Bits.

save your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful rainy day book 27 Oct 2010
By lucien
My daughter and I have always enjoyed Taro Gomi's wonderful Doodle books, and so decided to order this to keep for a rainy day (didn't realize this would come along so quickly).
I have always loved cutting out and creating from paper and cardboard, was so pleased that this book was so much fun for both of us (my daughter is 4)
The designs are beautifully simple and we enjoyed seeing the characters come to life as we punched them out and they became 3D. The book is such a lovely idea, and even inspired us to create some finger puppets of our own.
I really recommend this, most of it is not at all fiddly and we were able to make things quickly enough for my daughter not to lose interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars My kids love it 7 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My kids love this book so much that I bought lots more to give to my children's friends when for their birthdays. Unlike many craft books, this has everything that you need in it. Apart from adding celotape occasionally all the bits push out, fit together and make great creations. It's a great rainy day book or book to take away on holiday to keep the kids busy.
