Mechanical toys transcend categories of age with their universal appeal. Whether the mechanism is hidden or revealed, simple or complex, the cycle of movement allows you to simply turn a handle and see the magic work.
Making Mechanical Toys explains how to make these wonderful and fascinating toys through a variety of bright and exciting projects.
Seventeen original â€˜galleryâ€™ mechanical toys have been designed and made especially for this book. Step-by-step instructions with over a hundred and forty colour photographs and plans for making the toys. Advice on tools and materials, priming and painting, and tricks of the trade draw upon the authorâ€™s wide experience.
