This book was awesome. I used a little bit of the birthday money daddy gave me to get it in November. I did a few of the projects, then did one a day through Christmas, and called it an advent calendar thing. I ended up hanging the projects on the Christmas Tree. And this way I can store them carefully in a box and use them as ornaments again next year. This way I don't have tons of origami projects just taking up space I can't spare on the desk and various shelves. Also, I have something else t ...more

It's a folding frenzy in my house!!

My two young Jedis are already pros at folding an Origami Yoda and Origami Vader, thanks to Tom Angleberger's books, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back. In fact there is a foreward by Tom Angelberger in which refers to himself as a Padawan, and Chris Alexander as the Jedi Master of Star Wars Origami.

As the Master will probably tell you, in order to make one of the 36 - yes, 36 - Star Wars origami figures in the book, you need to go

I love Star Wars! And this book is full of classic characters and ships, and even the newer ones! I have yet to master any of these projects, due to my lack of folding skills, but this is so much fun to do! Especially with my 7 year old son, who is a huge fan too!

Always looking for some crafts to do, this one is right up my little boys alley. Not only is it a great idea for him to do and learn, it's a great family project as well! The instructions are clear, and while you might need to practice

Whoever set the difficulty ratings in this book should be taped to a wall and set upon by rabid badgers. I have now attempted to "Padawan" level models - aka "medium". The Vulture Droid Starfighter involves a TRIPLE SINK FOLD. This is medium difficult in the same way that a tsunami is a medium sized wave. I've folded a fair bit of origami, and I've never even heard of a triple sink fold until this "medium" difficulty model. I shudder to think about the "Jedi Master" aka "very tricky" models. The ...more

For fans of star wars, this is a fun activity book. I decided against adding it to my media center because the origami paper at the end of the book will disappear and a big portion of the book will be missing and would end up needing repair. It would be great for an individual who would be able to keep it safe.

I love Star Wars. I loved origami when I was a kid, still enjoy it today. Out of all the origami books I have, this one is simply the coolest! My 7-year-old couldn't wait to start folding the Padwan level projects.

The diagrams and instructions were confusing and frustrating. There are better demonstrations online.

Some of the explanations and demonstrating figures are not as clear as they could be but on the whole this is a fab collection, with a mixture of difficulty levels and some really fun Star Wars projects!

With the popularity of the Origami Yoda children's fiction book series, I was excited to see this book. Sadly, it's not so great. The character faces are already drawn onto shapes for the reader to cut out and fold (although the folding illustrations are quite clear and easy to understand). There are so many incredible options for making the Star Wars characters in origami--why waste your time with this watered-down version on book paper that can only be used once? 3 stars only because it will h ...more

The idea is appealing, but 1) it's not origami sensu stricto; 2) a lot of the projects are ugly; 3) instructions are detailed, but not clear; 4) the book is for ages 9 and up, but a 9 year old would need help, which is a consequence of 3. Overall, not something I'd buy.
