Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
10/15/2013
Necessity may be the mother of invention, but "fun" is also a valid reason to invent. In his latest collection, Gilsdorf (Zany Wooden Toys That Whiz, Spin, Pop, and Fly) presents nine new wooden-toy projects that will delight and entertain children and adults. Most of the projects combine wooden components with basic mechanical ones, turning the everyday into something whimsical (e.g., transforming a crayon holder into a mechanized crayon dispenser powered by a lever system). Other highlights include a modern, homemade take on the classic Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, a foot-powered "pirate coin maker," and a desktop flickerer that would be a hit at most offices. Children are bound to be intrigued by the process of inventing and building toys, so Gilsdorf provides tips for getting young people involved. VERDICT Gilsdorf's projects have built-in appeal for woodworkers who enjoy making toys for the children in their lives, but adults will also appreciate these lighthearted creations.
