The Flat Frog
This page attempts to record what is known about the origin and history of the origami design which I call the Flat Frog (in order to doistinguish it from the Blow-Up frog). Please contact me if you know any of this information is incorrect or if you have any other information that should be added. Thank you.


As far as I know the first appearance of the Flat Frog in the historical record is in 'Die Frobelschen Beschaftigungen: Das Falten' by Marie Muller-Wunderlich, which was published by Friedrich Brandstetter in Leipzig in 1900.
