" My nephew is obsessed with making the monsters in this book. Kids just need a gluestick or some clear tape to put together these cute and challenging paper dolls. A must for rainy day fun for bored kids. " said.

" This is a very fun book, but I can't see how young children could handle this without a lot of help. In fact, many of the designs will require parental hands-on even with older children.I used glue; it worked well. Several of the designs were off-printed and so the folds were less than optimal, but still worked. Only one design was beyond help. (There were about 2, maybe 3 that didn't have slots where needed. A razor blade took care of that. ;) )Recommended. " said.

"I found this book at one of my favorite bookstores in San Francisco, and I carried around in the store with me for the better part of an hour while I contemplated purchasing it. The book contains fifty different paper monsters, each ready to be created with the addition of glue and a little bit of time. The monsters are pre-printed on the paper and perforated, and there are directions for each monster's folding and gluing. I have only made one of the monsters so far, but I found the directions to be clear and easy to follow. This is a great gift idea for the kid or kid-at-heart in your life. " said.

"This book has 50 paper monsters that you punch out, fold and glue. My five year old and seven year old had a blast putting these together with the help of their dad. My seven year old could put some of the easier monsters together almost all by himself but the five year old needed a lot of help with all the monsters he put together.

The book recommends using glue to adhere the tabs together but that requires patience to hold the tabs together while the glue dries before moving on the next step. Since patience is not a virtue my boys have mastered, they used scotch tape. The monsters still turned out looking just fine.

This book is great to pull out on a rainy day to have fun projects to work on with your kids.

"Made some paper monsters with my niece!!

What it's about: It's approximately 200 pages. The left page has a little 'story' about the monster, the right page has the monster dye-cut. You punch out the monster, glue the tabs and put that thing together.

They are about 50 monsters, and 10 blanks which you get to design yourself. Each monster is set for a different level (ex. easy, intermediate, etc.)

My thoughts: Love the book!! I totally dig the little monster stories (and all three kids enjoyed listening to me read them). I think the idea is very creative, and the monsters ARE infact fun to put together. They are also all different, so there is something for everyone.

Highly recommend it for all ages. I helped my 4 year niece (she did all the folding and gluing). Once done she ran to get jewel stickers and personalized it a little more!

Note: we used a good glue-stick and had absolutely NO problems. And I had no problems punching out the pieces.

" @papertoymonsters The monsters are so much fun to make. My kid friends always want to make them when they come over! Each monster has a backstory, too. Fun, funny, loveably weird characters that evidence ingenious design solutions! " said.

" Silly, fun, wacky, gross, and sometimes utterly ridiculous monsters fill the pages of this book. The colors are bright, the directions are simple, and there’s no cutting involved! Each papertoy punches out of the page and is accompanied by directions for creating your wacky 3-D monster. Blank templates are provided at the back of the book so that you can create your own monsters. " said.

"PaperToy Monsters is a book full of punch out paper monsters that can be assembled with nothing but glue. There are four sections of monsters: Monster Legends, Earth Ocean and Space Monsters, Mutant Food and Thing Monsters, and Human Monsters. There is also a nice paragraph describing each monster's story and a set of templates in the back of the book so you can design your own monster. The PaperToys come in Intermediate, Easy and Advanced difficulty and I was able to complete both an intermediate and an easy monster without much trouble and I'm one of the least crafty people ever. It was a lot of fun.


Appropriateness:
I would recommend this book for kids ages ten and up (although younger kids will be able to help and play with the monsters). Any younger and the parent will end up doing most of the work. How to books are great for kids to work on reading carefully and following directions.
