AmiGami Monkey – I want the pony one next!

Written by on November 18, 2014 in Product Reviews, REVIEWS, Toy Reviews - No comments

We were sent an AmiGami set a couple of weeks ago.  We’ve been meaning to play with it but just been so busy that we haven’t managed to.

Until that is today when the ten year old was off school poorly. Except we’re still not sure she ACTUALLY was poorly.  No sooner had her brother gone to school there was a certain level of recovery associated with someone who just wants a day off school. I’ve always tried to make sick days THE most boring ever and quite often they backfire.  Like the time I decided to make her watch the musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.  Little did I realise that it would end up being in her top ten films of all time.

Because The Husband and I both work from home we ended up with her pestering us, not knowing what to do with herself. She read, she pretended to sleep, she ate her packed lunch at 11am and just as she decided to start twanging her Dad’s guitar behind me – as I was trying to write something incredibly important for a client I decided to put an end to the madness so that I could actually do some work.

Enter AmiGami! It kept her quiet for a whole hour … which if you know my daughter is amazing. So I hand you over to the ten year old who wrote down what she thought of AmiGami.

What is AmiGami?

Amigami is an origami type set that you can play with. You get an animal and lots of different pieces of coloured paper ans stickers.  You clip the pieces of paper to the animal. There are over 500 combinations you can make.

What didn’t you like about AmiGami?

Zilch

Would you play with AmiGami again?

Yes, yupidudar. I want the pony one next!

How many stars out of 5?

100% (Note from editor : I would suggest this means 5!)

From my point of view this is a great little toy which sparks the imagination. The endless combinations make it a great toy which can be used over and over again. I can imagine if you buy some other sets then you can be EVEN more imaginative.

AmiGami will be officially launched in January in shops such as Sainsbury, Amazon and John Lewis, and then in February in Argos, Toys R Us. Asda.
