Comments (0)

Create a brand-new toy or your version of a favorite toy, and enter it in the Wooden Toys Challenge contest sponsored by Woodcraft and Instructables. For details and to enter from Dec. 5, 2016, through Jan. 9, 2017, visit Instructables.com.

This contest is now closed. Click here to see the winners' announcement. 

“Wooden toys have delighted children from earliest times, and this contest offers the ‘creative makers’ out there an opportunity to discover a new toy or a different way to make an existing toy,” Vince Grlovich, Woodcraft vice president for sales and marketing, said. “In the process, some of these toy makers may be introduced to wood for the first time, while others may improve their woodworking skills. In both cases Woodcraft’s goals to inspire new woodworkers and help existing woodworkers become more skilled will be met.”
