These ten smart origami challenges will send your hands racing, folding, unfolding, twisting, turning, and flexing to find the solutions.

Fold and refold a colorful square to create twelve intricate patterns. Layer and weave strips to complete an amazing outer space picture. Fold strips one at a time to build a star in four different colors.

    Great old fashioned toy!
    Posted 11/30/2014 by DB

    This is what I've been looking for. We do not do much electronics (TV, iPad, Wii and DS), even though they are all available. My 7-year-old loves to read but also wants to play. FOLD had kept him busy all the time, especially during Thanksgiving break. We love it.

    Not exactly what I expected
    Posted 11/10/2014 by Anne Blackford

    I ordered this a s a gift for our 13-year old granddaughter. When it arrived, I realized it would be better suited for her 9-year-old brother. He seems to enjoy the creativeness of the item, and it is helping him to enhance his fine motor skills. My only concern was that the item was a suggested gift for a teen. It was not the right thing for her.

    Bought this for my 13-year old who enjoys origami and puzzles. He's been playing with it regularly since he opened it last week. The puzzles seem to be appropriately challenging. Would be great if they could extend use further by perhaps indicating the minimum possible number of steps to solution.

    Totally addictive. Leave plenty of time to figure these out. It's hard to walk away until you do.

    Product review of FOLD
    Posted 12/26/2013 by Norma Dellosso

    Gave this to 11 yr old grandson, he was fascinated with it, my 10 yr old granddaughter and 15 yr old grandson also all fun with it. My only complaint is that within an hour of different folks folding it one of the puzzles tore. Not sure how to improve the durability.
