James T. Stasio
Expensive electronic toys come and go, but the toys children really like best are the simplest. The plain handmade wooden train, doll cradle or circus animal is most often the key that unlocks a child's imagination.
This book makes it easy to create toys that will win a permanent place in any child's
heart. After years of working with young children, veteran wood crafter and
educator James T. Stasio has distilled his expert knowledge into a handy,
inexpensive guide to making 12 wooden toys of enduring appeal:
Rocking Horse and Squirrel
Circus Animals and Acrobats
You don't have to be a master craftsman or purchase expensive materials. If you can use a saw and a screwdriver, you can make any of these charming toys quickly and easily.
For each project, a list of materials indicates how much wood and the kind of hardware you'll need. Exact-size templates for every part make cutting out the wood simplicity itself. And a large, easy-to-grasp exploded diagram shows precisely how to fit the parts together. The introduction also provides handy tips on selection of wood, finishing and more.
Best of all, these sturdy toys will stand up to almost any amount of rough handling. And there are no batteries to replace!
