Papertoy Glowbots: 46 Glowing Robots You Can Make Yourself!

We rated this book:


Papertoy Glowbots by Brian Castleforte is an activity book. You make “robots” out of paper, but they don’t move. This book I found to be okay. The robots were hard to make because the instructions were not clear and so were very hard to follow. But I liked the robots. Some of them were really hard to make, and I think they could have added more detail. I really liked that they added glow-in-the-dark stickers, and some of them use little battery-powered tea lights (that don’t come with the book but that you can usually get at a dollar store). But the problem with the stickers was that they did not tell you where to put them on the robot. I really liked how they had some story about how the robot was invented or how it was made.

The book has two parts. One part is all the instructions and the other part is the heavy paper to make the robot. On the instruction page, there is the robot’s story and how to make the robot. There is also a corresponding page number that tells you where the paper to make the robot is. I found that kind of confusing. This book would be good for readers ages ten to fifteen who like crafts.
