I've made a few visits to The Toymaker this week in the office after quite a long break, and I've been struck once again by the wealth of amazing toys there are to make at Marilyn Scott Waters' magical site.
It occured to me that some of you mightn't know of this wonderful resource, and my mum always says it's nice to share...
The Toymaker is an incredible website full of clever toys, dolls and beautiful things all available for free download for you - or your kids - to fold yourself.
Here are some of our faves:
The Chocolate Truck We made this and filled it with Smarties as a gift for a friend.
The Toy Shop We turned this into a little dolls house with door and windows.
Dizzy Koalas A koala merry go round
Three Billy Goats Gruff These occupied a certain young lady for hours yesterday...
A Little Triangle Box ...and she's working on this at the moment!
There's heaps here for you to explore. Don't forget to share what you make...you know what my mother says!!
Marilyn also sells a book full of number of her toys printed on lovely thick cardstock. The Toymaker - Paper Toys That You Can Make Yourself is available from Amazon.
PS I'll be back properly next week ... my septimana horribilis is almost at an end!!
