8 Years

We love eight-year-olds! They’re just the right age for all kinds of fun. They still love the pretend play they’ve been enjoying for years, yet they’re also ready to move ahead into more advanced toys and learning. All of these toys and activities will appeal to their natural sense of fun and wonder.

My First Origami Kit is the perfect introduction to the joys of origami for kids of all ages. Featuring sheets of stickers along with folding paper, this kit is sure to keep them engaged and happy for hours!

Included are whimsical origami penguins, foxes, pigs, airplanes and more—even a cute teddy bear that "talks" when you open and close its arms. All of the papers are colorfully decorated on both sides with a different design for each of the 22 models! There are feathers for the duck, metal plates for the airplane, scales for the cobra, and so on. In most cases, it doesn't even matter which side of the paper kids use—they'll still end up with a great-looking model!

Kids will love to add sticker details to their models—eyes, noses, paws, and many other cute features. They can make the finished models look as silly or as serious as they want. Your child will proudly display the finished handiwork—their very first origami!

Projects include:

  • Diablo the Cobra
  • Clarence the Mouse
  • Magic Box
  • Barkley the Sea Lion
  • Edward Elephant
  • Cootie Catcher
  • Soaring Sam

Includes 60 sheets of 6" 2-sided color designer paper, two 8" x 8" sheets with 150 stickers, and a 48-page 6" x 8" full-color booklet

By Jessica Prescott

Learn how to play chess, the world’s most popular board game! It’s easy to learn, and anyone can play it. Jessica Prescott teaches you how you can get good at it and start winning. Improve your skills through 35 fun activities. This isn’t just a textbook about the rules of the game! Why not have a game of Pawn Football (pawns line up at their starting rank and race to the other side), or do the Queen Dance (make a checkmate using only a queen and king)? Try Scholar’s Mate: the four-move checkmate every beginner needs to know, and when you’re really good, play Bughouse, a crazy four-person game with two chess sets. All the activities have clear, colorful illustrations so you can see exactly where pieces should be on the chessboard. There are also helpful hints and tips throughout, and if you’ve ever forgotten how a piece moves or need to brush up on a rule, look at the Starting Out section for a reminder.

A fresh spin on a drawing revolution! Back in the 20th century, kids used plastic gears to draw geometric designs. When the process worked, the results were beautiful. But, too often, sprockets didn't mesh, gears stuck, and drawings were crumpled in frustration.

At Klutz, they see this kind of kid frustration as a call to action. So they created The Spiral Draw Book. Gratifying stacks of letters, drawings, and sales figures showed how kids loved the meticulously designed gears and draw-right-on-'em pages. Now, 9 years later, this book has earned a fresh new spin!

The gears have been engineered (and tested, tested, and tested again) for maximum ease of use — they're even translucent, to eliminate the "where was I?" of other spiral systems. The frame's rubber feet grip the lay-flat book pages securely. Updated project ideas show how to create and combine the 65 different shapes into stunning spirals, while a pen with six different ink colors guarantees every one of them will be rainbow bright. And now, everything packs away into a neat new format with tons of workspace and storage — perfectly sized for a zillion and one spirals!

Hardcover containing 48 pages.
