Overview

In Homemade Toys for Girls and Boys the author has brought together a large number of the toy ideas from his former handicraft volumes, and from his published articles, and he believes that as collected and arranged the material will be found a veritable gold-mine of toy-making information. The book is an all-the-year-round handy book with suggestions for every season.

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 boys or girls and much of the value of making is lost. From merry-go-rounds, Ferris wheels, and swings, very many toys in Homemade Toys for Girls and Boys go beyond the limited possibilities of "construction sets".
