PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns are on teeny weeny grids that take about a sixth of a page at most and have no markings to aid the crafter. There's not a single photo in the entire book, so there's no way to tell if the actual toys will look like the illustrations. I like the idea of some of the toys, like the Autograph Hound, but enlarging the patterns to a useful size will be really tough.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating The instructions are broken down into numbered steps, and there is some illustration(though not a lot) to go with the instructions. Illustrations are on the same page with the teeny gridded pattern, so there is some page flipping involved when you want to match up instructions and illustrations.

SUMMARY- This is a disappointing book overall.
