Origami, the art of paper folding, is a pastime that has existed in Japan since at least the Heian period (794 – 1185 AD) and is enjoyed all over the world to this day. True origami only contains folds, though there are some who use glues and other modelling sprays to create smoother and more complicated designs. For a great range of origami books and paper for practitioners of all levels, take a look at Japan Centre's Origami section.

Very cute. You need a glue stick and scissors but there's not too much to glur or cut, it's not difficult. The directions are clear to understand and it contained a full 2nd set in English. Plenty of paper, the level is not so difficult, easy for most children to do.
