Product Information

Originally published in the 1950s, this book shows a number of designs of nursery toys, such as Rocking Horse, Metal Swing, Stepped Slide, See-Saw, Rocker and Scooter. All the toys have been tried out in a large number of nurseries and the methods of construction were thoroughly tested. Throughout the book the descriptive matter has been kept opposite its illustrations and the latter have, as far as possible, been made self-explanatory.

The designs have been prepared for workers with widely varying degrees of experience and craftsmanship. The expert will need little more than the suggestions contained in the drawings; the inexperienced worker, however, before commencing the construction of any toy, is advised to read the text carefully and study the illustrations until he has a clear mental picture of all the operations involved.

Whether, therefore, he be the boy working in the school handicraft room, the home craftsman satisfying an urge to construct by making toys for his children, or the expert "in the trade", the user of this book may follow its suggestions with confidence.
