By reading & following these classic books, parents will soon discover that making toys at home with their kids together not only brings the whole family hours & hours of fun, but also saves the family hundreds & hundreds of dollars. And perhaps mostly importantly, giving a child an opportunity to make things, arouses his interest; therefore, learning by doing is a most effective method in gaining educational ends. PDF Reprint #1 114 Pages Educational Toymaking for Children Educational Toymaking for Children in the School & the Home is intended to be of real service to parents and teachers who are entrusted with the arduous responsibility of child-training. It is with this object in view that the directions, drawings and photographs have been prepared. The experience of almost twenty years as a teacher has convinced the author that only when the child approaches subject-matter with interest and enthusiasm can the best results be obtained. Giving a child an opportunity to make things, arouses his interest; therefore, learning by doing is a most effective method in gaining educational ends. Toymaking incorporates this method, with several vital elements added. It takes into account the child's view-point, his proclivities and his emotions. It is a form of activity that appeals strongly to his fancy, has a direct relation to his environments, and is within the range of his mental grasp and constructive ability. His wonderful imagination endows the creatures of his handiwork with life, individuality and cunning. The toy problem is in harmony with the child's resourcefulness, his powers and his interests. One advantage in connection with the kind of educational hand work presented in this book is that it can be carried on with very small and inexpensive equipment. Moreover, it is light, clean and agreeable in every respect. The tools are safe for a child to handle. The material is substantial and durable. The articles made are firm, strong and of lasting quality. They become an excellent means for providing an abundance of entertainment, and constitute most acceptable gifts, promoting as much genuine happiness for the industrious donor as for the fortunate receiver. Note: This excellent PDF Reprint is a high-quality, electronic facsimile version of the actual book published in 1920s. Contents Covered Tools and Supplies Bow Drill Transferring Designs Woods Laying Out Work Sawing Fastening Bases Fastenings Coloring Toys Knots and Braids Working Drawings and Directions PDF Reprint #2 242 Pages How to Make Homemade Toys Wooden toys, Cardboard toys Mechanical toys, Electrical toys In this classic book, the author has brought together a large number of the toy ideas from his former handicraft volumes, and from his articles published in the Ladies' Home Journal, Woman's Home Companion, Good Housekeeping, the Boys' Magazine, and other publications. One splendid thing about these homemade toys is that the greater part of them require little more than the pick-up material found at home. Few kids are given hundreds of dollars of assortment of toys at a time, yet anyone can own a collection of this value who is willing to spend the time necessary to follow the instructions given in this book. Homemade toys are generally longer lived than store toys because the child who expends a certain amount of effort producing gives them better care. Homemade toys also have a greater value than bought ones because there is as much fun making them as playing with them. Doing something interesting, getting satisfying results out of the work, putting an idea into tangible form, and having a toy to show of which it can be said, " I made this all myself," --- these are the factors in toy-making so fascinating to children. It is no less a child's nature to want to do that which is most pleasing to him or her, than an adult's, so why not encourage this wholesome activity of toy-making to which the child takes as readily as a duck takes to water? It trains the mind to think clearly, the hands to work cleverly, replaces destructive thoughts with constructive ideas, and, in making the boy or girl dependent upon himself or herself for toys, is invaluable in developing resourcefulness. Recognizing how easily the child's interest is attracted and held by anything of a building nature, toy manufacturers have placed scores of so-called" construction sets" upon the market, but, though excellent as these outfits are, the toys they form are merely assembled, not really made by the kid, and much of the value of making is lost. Exactly as good models as those assembled with" construction sets" can be made of pick-up materials, as chapters in this book show. In fact, some of the models in the manufacturers' instruction pamphlets, such as Merry-go-rounds, Ferris wheels and swings, are almost identical with homemade models devised long ago by the author for his readers. Furthermore, there are many, very many toys in How to Make Homemade Toys which are beyond the limited possibilities of "construction sets." This classic book is also a great reference for the toymakers in small business or home-based business.

The making of toys is an engrossing pastime, and the homemade toy is invariably more novel than the shop-bought one and of superior quality, besides which there is always a satisfaction in "I made it myself." The classic book gives simple and easily understood instructions and plain diagrams and sketches for making 100 toys from the odds and ends that are usually discarded as useless. Matches, Match Boxes, Cotton Reels, Cocoa Tins, Cigar Boxes, and even Egg Shells comprise the materials from which are evolved Shops, Working Models, Dolls' Furniture, Boats, Steam Engines, Windmills, and scores of other toys dear to hearts of boys and girls. Perhaps the chief charm of the occupation is that literally dozens of toys can be made at a cost of less than a penny. Every toy described in this book is practicable, and can be easily made by anyone possessing the smallest amount of handicraft skill. At the same time the instructions are such as will prove of the utmost value to instructors of handicraft classes.
