The Most Incredible Cardboard Toys in the Whole Wide WorldBook - 1999
17 superbly designed toys to make, enjoy, and admireArtist and illustrator Stefan Czernecki presents a how-to book filled with primary colors, first-rate designs, and fun.Each toy is inspired by a particular country and accompanied by a charming tale to introduce the toy and the culture. With everything from a Mexican Butterfly and an Ethiopian Ostrich to a replica of a Peking Opera House, there's a whole world to explore.The 17 toys are made from the simplest materials -- cardboard tubes, corrugated paper, two-ply cardboard, wooden dowels, and paint. While the tools are equally ordinary (scissors, glue, a handsaw, an electric hand drill), these are projects for an adult and a child to make together -- or for an adult to make for a favorite child. Step-by-step instructions and detailed, color-coded illustrations make the construction easy to follow, and full-color photos of toys and kids display the delightful results.
