TOY-MAKING AT HOME
MAKE A HUNDRED TOYS FROM ODDS AND ENDS
FREDERICK A. STOKES COMPANY
This work has been compiled
with the assistance of Mr. Walter Higgins, the
well-known instructor in woodwork.
The volume fulfils a
long-felt want in that it supplies fascinating amusement
for evenings at home. The making of toys is an
engrossing pastime, and the home-made toy is invariably
more novel than the shop-bought article and of superior
quality, besides which there is always a satisfaction in
"I made it myself."
purpose of the book is to give simple and easily
understood instructions and plain diagrams and sketches
for making toys from the odds and ends that are usually
discarded as useless. Matches, Match Boxes, Cotton

comprise the materials from which are evolved Shops,
Working Models, Dolls' Furniture, Boats, Steam Engines,
Windmills, and scores of other toys dear to the hearts
of boys and girls......................
