Some of them are quite easy and can probably be assembled quite quickly assuming some preparation the night before. Most of them, however, are fairly involved and a lot of those require specialized equipment (egg presses, nori/hobby punches, etc) in order to get an effect similar to the book. The nori punches in particular are almost required as tiny pieces of it are used for eyes and other accents on a lot of the creatures.
In that way I've used the book mostly as inspiration for some of the dishes I make my daughter - I have not attempted to follow any one of the recipes all the way through as spending an hour to make a kid's lunch seems excessive. But that's okay, because it's given me creative ideas for ways of using rice and food colouring and what and how to shape in order to craft animal faces and other objects.
Food can be ... fun and it can be interesting. This I thought is amazing.
As I wrapped it up to give away. You should love it.
