Wooden toys that are small in size, but BIG in fun!

Over the past century, no toys have been more popular, or were made in greater numbers, than die-cast metal vehicles. They were small, about 2" to 5" in length, and included cars, trucks, boats, and planes. You no doubt played with them, collected them, and bought them for your children or grandchildren. Modern names inclufr Corgi, Matchbox, and Hot Wheels, but before those brands landed on any kiddo’s wish list, there was Dinky Toys leading the charge of metal die-cast cars and trucks taking over many a playroom floor.

In Wooden Dinky Toys, Les Neufeld, a professional woodworker and wooden toy expert, redesigns the favorites of the Dinky Toy line, so anyone who enjoys working with wood can make beautiful versions of these iconic toys. All the projects have been chosen by historical popularity, as well as the ease of conversion to a wooden counterpart. They’re simple enough to make in a few hours, require only basic tools and minimal materials, and can be enjoyed by all skill levels.

While there are wooden toy books covering larger conventional toys, Wooden Dinky Toys is the only one showcasing these classic little toys that always deliver big-time fun. 174 pages, Softcover, ISBN: 978-1-940611-82-2.
