This kit will provide hours of fun and excitement for the whole family!

Everything you need to create 36 exciting paper airplane dinosaurs is included in this kit. The airplanes range from simple models that can be folded up in a few minutes to slightly more complex ones with superior aerodynamics.

Most of your favorite dinosaurs are included here:
  • Stegosaurus—whose thick, bony plates double as wing stabilizers
  • Velociraptor—a clever nose-lock dart that's designed for speed in flight!
  • Tyrannosaurus Rex—whose muscular jaws provide ballast at the front of the plane
  • Plesiosaurus—with a long, fuselage-like neck which is surprisingly stealthy in the air
  • And many other impressive flying dinosaur airplanes!

The full-color, step-by-step instructions in the accompanying book are very easy to follow and flying tips are also included to help you coax the best performance from each model.

Paper airplanes have never looked this good!

Together with fellow folder Shrikant Iyer, Paul holds the Guinness World Record for folding the largest origami dragon from a 24-foot square piece of paper.
