A toy designer for over 40 years, I would like to present my new and innovative line of wooden toys which include "Wood Toys On a Stick" ,"Wooden Whistles with Wheels" , "Puppet Theater" ,"Little Whirligigs" and "Animated Music Boxes. The toy featured is a colorful "Green Monster" that has movable head, mouth and tail that bounces up and down. The child makes the Monster come alive simply by sliding the wood bead on the handle. I have included a photo of my five year old grandson demonstrating how easily this is with just one hand. My grandson's name is Jimmy and he is has been my best helper and inspiration. My goal is to design toys that encourage pretend play, which helps develop imagination and a sense of humor. I believe these are important in everyday life. The Monster is 12" tall, made out of Birch Plywood, and handcrafted here in my workshop in Dyer Indiana. Every toy is shipped with instructions for both care and play. My grandson and I are designing more "Wood Toys on a Stick" so if you do not see a character you like please check with us next month. We welcome your comments. WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD- Small parts.
