My roommates and I spent so much time putting these together and we enjoyed EVERY MOMENT of it! We still have them all displayed on a shelf and had even hung them on our Christmas tree. It was the perfect bonding activity! I wish I had more children in my life to gift this book to. Just get this book.. You WILL love it.

This is full of awesome (and awesomely cute) monsters. You fold on the dotted lines and glue and voila. I gave it to some 8 year olds who thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. They enjoyed it so much I gave it to my father and brother last Chanukah, and they loved it too. There are a variety of levels of difficulty in the book, ensuring that there's a monster for everyone!

I am a teacher at a school for kids who have bevahioral issues. It is rare that I get a chance to see the kids sit and really focus on an activity, this book is one of the rare moments that I can see them sit and focus. Also, when my boyfriend broke his leg he enjoyed doing them. So weather your a kid with attention issues, or an adult whos stuck in bed, this is a book full of enjoyable activities.

I dare you to flip through Papertoy Monsters and not think, "Holy cow, this is perfect for [insert kid's name here]." Lurking within are 50 easy-to-assemble creatures, complete with detailed dossiers. Prepare to be enamored with the likes of Squidbeak, Rottenbottom, or Zombunny.

"Publishers Weekly Review"
by Publishers Weekly,
"Twenty-five 'papertoy' artists contribute 50 original monster designs made of colorful cardstock that can be punched out and glued together to form three-dimensional cartoon characters, each with its own quirky backstory. The menagerie includes the tentacled OctoPup, who devours small boats; Yucky Chuck, a serrated-toothed 'mutant lunchbox monster'; and Lester Rottenbottom, a teacher-turned-mad-scientist. The designers' enthusiasm for their subjects should inspire readers to invent their own monsters on the blank templates provided. Ages 9 — up. (Dec.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
