Wooden action toys

£4.99

Product description

First published in 1987 in Great Britain by David and Charles in hardback with dustjacket, 134ppIn this exciting collection of toys, the accent is on action: each item is designed to stimulate constructive play and to keep children happily occupied for hours. Bryan Mapstone provides meticulous instructions, which will even enable someone who has never worked with wood before to produce a perfectly presentable toy that will last for years. Step-by-step guidelines, detailed drawings, cutting lists and colour photographs are provided for each project, together with helpful general advice on the use of various tools, methods and materials, and a guide to reading the drawings. Many of the toys can be made from scrap pieces of wood, old furniture, cupboards, etc, and there is plenty of scope for finishing touches to personalise the projects by incorporating your child's initials, favourite motifs or colours. Readily available accessories will match the scale of the projects. Includes diagrams (drawings) with measurements given and colour plates illustrating some of the toys built.
