Overview

It's vintage fun! This follow-up to The Boy Mechanic-Popular Mechanics' collection of can-do ingenuity from the early 1900s-features more than 200 unique toys and games that anyone with a basic tool kit will want to make, plus the unusual and attractive rounded, flexibound format. Charmingly designed to capture that old-fashioned flavor, every imaginative project remains as engaging today as ever, with its appeal fully intact. There's amusement for little kids, including a toy donkey that nods and wags its tail; a child's playhouse and a miniature windmill; magic tricks, such as an "X-Ray" pack of cards and mystery coin box; items for the great outdoors, which range from a homebuilt canoe to a diving tower; plus gizmos and gadgets, "scien-terrific" motors and engines, and entertaining objects for an older child to create and play with.
