Oh. My. Word. This book is SO much fun, and not only this particular one but anything by Marilyn Scott-Waters! While looking for information online about The Toymaker I was beyond thrilled to find that there is an entire website full of online printable toys to make yourself! And they’re so detailed! Visit the free printable toys category, and be sure to sign up for the email newsletter (I did!) so you’ll know when new toys are added. So exciting!
Now back to the book I’m supposed to be featuring (I got a little excited there). ;-) The Toymaker’s Christmas is full of holiday toys and dolls for me kids to play with! Here’s a “table of contents” in pictures:
What I especially love about this book is that you don’t have to spend hours cutting them out yourself – just tear out carefully and put them together. Some require a little glue but that’s no hassle at all – and a great project for kids to do themselves. The artwork is truly gorgeous, detailed, and printed on heavy glossy paper.
Don’t you love them already?
Emma and I chose a page and set to work, carefully tearing the adorable little people from the page. It was so easy and Emma played with them for quite awhile before I set them up so we could look at them. :)
I may have enjoyed trying different combinations a little too much. ;-)
