Having Fun with Inventions!
Did you know that Play-Doh originally only came in white and it was used to clean wallpaper? Did anyone ever tell you that the Slinky was an invention created when an engineer was trying to invent a stabilizing device for Navy ships? Toys! Amazing Stories Behind Some Great Inventions by Don Wulffson, explains the strange and interesting stories behind some of the most familiar and popular toys. It could have been an invention that originally didn't work or something that was created by accident. This book takes us on the adventures behind such great toys as the bicycle, Toy Soldiers and the Super Ball. The author not only gives the history but also completes each chapter with fun facts about the toys. It has great comic illustrations (as you can see from the book cover) and is fun, interesting and educational to read. You will enjoy this book. I sure did!
