This is so much fun to fold. It's a 3D puzzle where you folded the pieces yourself! Once you have made two or three of these you'll get the hang of how the pieces weave together, but it's definitely a challenge the first time! The units are very easy to make, so I recommend this to someone who maybe doesn't have a lot of folding experience but enjoys a good exercise in spatial thinking. Some origami is like a paper sculpture, dragons, snails, etc. but this is like those wooden puzzles that only fit together from certain angles. There is immense satisfaction in putting it together and the final product is pleasant to look at. Makes a great gift for your math teachers too.
