This author has invented his own unique toy system: six basic types (Boats, Trucks, Houses, Planes, Road Vehicles & Ships) each of which have a number of easily interchangeable components that give children (and adults!) endless assembly possibilities, much like Lego or a wooden version of Meccano. At the same time, the components are finished to a high degree, so that the assembled toys look realistic, much like Brio train sets. Clever and beautiful toys: use six basic toy systems to make and endless number of different toys; Clear instructions, step-by-step measured plans and colour photographs. Unique: there is no other toy-making book like this one on the market. Market: woodworkers with children, grandchildren, nephews & nieces. Top author: is a retired industrial designer and toy maker. His previous book Making Heirloom Toys (Taunton 1996; 1-56158-112-7) has sold 24,000 copies.
