Dolls' House Do It Yourself: Toys and Games

Front Cover
David & Charles, 2003 - Crafts & Hobbies - 64 pages
From building blocks and a blackboard in the nursery, skipping ropes and tennis racquets in the garden, and draughts and quoits in the parlour; toys and games are an important part of daily life in a dolls' house. Here are 35 step-by-step, illustrated projects which show, in detail, how to make a variety of toys and games, and ideas are given for further variations. An illustrated section on the basic materials and equipment used offers practical guidance, while the basic techniques, such as working with wood, using glues, and painting and varnishing, are illustrated with step-by-step photographs. Easy-to-use templates and diagrams are provided where necessary, including colour photocopying pages with a selection of pictures and patterns, and inspirational colour photographs show the toys and games being enjoyed in situ.
