Thousands ofMoreHaving sold over 25,000 copies in hardback, this classic woodworking book is now available for the first time in paperback. When Richard Blizzard first showed his toys on BBC TVs Pebble Mill at One he was astonished by the response. Thousands of requests reached him within a few days asking for details of how to make his toys.-It quickly became evident that there was a great need for a book showing a wide range of toys with cutting lists and clear step-by-step instructions integrated with the carefully designed plans. What was important was that at least some of the toys could be made by anyone, however inexperienced in woodworking. This book is the result. It includes both simple and more complicated toys so that people who have not made wooden toys before can do so confidently. The rocking-horse and go-cart are full scale so they can be ridden by children.The toys included are:-Escaping robber Snooker game Somersaulting clown Rocking-horse Paddle boat Roundabout with horses Sand engine 6-wheel lorry Sand digger Windmill Puppet theatre Go-cart Wooden toys not only give hours of pleasure to children but also to those who make them, reflecting Richard Blizzards motto I too will something make and joy in the making. All measurements are both metric and imperial.
