A really good kit. Lots of types of flowers, also comes with paper. Haven't even watched the dvd yet and I've had so much use from it

1.0 out of 5 stars One basic type of flower, 15 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really terrible book - there's only two sets of instructions at the back and the rest of the book is just showing you different types of paper! If you know how to fold a kusudama and a lily already do not buy!

This review is from: Crease + Fold (Paperback)
This is one of favourite origami books. Yes the representations can be simple and a couple are very difficult but they are all possible to fold with patience. Not made for beginners at all but an excellent book

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 15 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Origami Boxes (Paperback)
There were no ratings for this book, but the other ones I looked at had poor ratings so I chanced this

On first viewing it looked great - lots of interesting things to make

However on reading the projects some of them are not origami and some are not boxes. Wrapping paper stuck to a cereal box is not origami, and tissue paper wrapped around a pot plant is neither a box nor origami. Whilst the playing cards folded into a box looks nice this isn't origami either - it's paper slotting at best.

Then there's the boxes which are origami, of which I'd say there are about 15. Some of them don't use paper squares, but strips or even A4 paper. So the origami paper I have is no use

Difficult instructions, even for me as a novice with a bit of practice the 'simple' box made no sense. She keeps using the same impossible to understand instruction on every box. 'Twist' is not an instruction I've seen before using paper

They're also far too small when made up to hold anything when using average origami squares. Looking at the instructions her paper squares are much bigger than mine. Aren't origami squares usually uniform?

Because she's made up a lot of these boxes, it's impossible to find a video tutorial even, so it's even more annoying

So if she'd called this 'paper boxes' I'd have been less annoyed. As it is I'm fuming.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap versions being sold as the 'real thing', 3 May 2011
I purchased this, and it didn't arrive over-packaged as someone else reviewed, and it doesn't come with a pouch. This seems to be a cheap version of the alupen. it does work, BUT i'm concerned at being sold a cheap chinese made version of the real thing

UPDATE - I questioned the authenticity of this item and received a refund immediately and without question. This seller obviously knows they are selling a cheap imitation otherwise there would have been more of an argument about the refund

BEWARE

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy just because you're a FOTC fan, 6 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Diagnosis: Death [DVD] (DVD)
I got this for christmas after wanting to watch it for ages. I cannot believe they've got away with this repackaging. It's just an old film with a new front after the success of the TV show. The film is appalling, and cannot do either the comedy or the horror very well. Didn't laugh once.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect, 9 Jun. 2009
this is a perfect bag - just the right amount and size of pockets, very comfortable strap, which is long enough for across the body, or can be made shorter for the shoulder.

very hard wearing, i've had loads of stuff in it, and it hasn't shown any signs of strain. I particularly like the bits at the front for my pens.

It does get a lot of looks though - with people trying to work out what it says

1.0 out of 5 stars IT MADE ME FEEL ILL, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!, 16 July 2001
Absolute pap... lasted about 2 hours at the most, so very expensive. No challenge whatsoever, as silly bint follows you around telling you what you should do next. Even made me feel ill while playing it, as movement very weird, and gameplay nearly impossible as you control where you look with the mouse, and where you move with the cursors. Obviously made for the whole family so ultimately satisfies no-one, as puzzles not hard enough, and no-one gets killed, they just surrender when you've hit them twice. If Crichton actually had anything to do with this, he should be ashamed. I cannot honestly describe the disappointment we felt at this game, and cannot urge you strongly enough to avoid it.
