Bought this for a birthday party activity for 9 year old girls. First tip: practice folding all designs before you hand the papers to children to color....Due to time constraints, none of the girls tried to fold their papers. The rooster never seemed to stand, no matter what angle I tried. The butterfly is an utter frustration. On step 8 are 8 arrows (steps?), and no matter what I tried, things were wrong by step 11. It would help if there was a visual of what one side would look like with perhaps half of the arrows followed. My husband and I both have advanced degrees, and this outsmarted us both. I managed to create something sort of butterfly -like, but it took way too much time to do so. Haven't done any of the other designs, so can't comment on them. I know some involve a scissors, which will be rather unforgiving if you fold things wrong. The wrong side of the paper has the fold lines marked, but these end up inside the design almost immediately, where they will not help you. Not sure I'd choose this again for a party activity. Maybe I would enjoy it if I was in a body cast and had nothing else to occupy hours of time.... The designs are sort of like adult coloring book pages, so that could be fun.
