Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Its vintage fun! This follow-up to The Boy Mechanic—Popular Mechanics collection of can-do ingenuity from the early 1900s—features more than 200 unique toys and games that anyone with a basic tool kit will want to make, plus the unusual and attractive rounded, flexibound format. Charmingly designed to capture that old-fashioned flavor, every imaginative project remains as engaging today as ever, with its appeal fully intact. Theres amusement for little kids, including a toy donkey that nods and wags its tail; a childs playhouse and a miniature windmill; magic tricks, such as an “X-Ray” pack of cards and mystery coin box; items for the great outdoors, which range from a homebuilt canoe to a diving tower; plus gizmos and gadgets, “scien-terrific” motors and engines, and entertaining objects for an older child to create and play with.

Synopsis:

The Boy Mechanic--bigger and better! This handsome hardcover features every one of the fantastic vintage projects and handy advice from both The Boy Mechanic and The Boy Mechanic Makes Toys.
 
Taken from the turn-of-the-last-century volumes of The Boy Mechanic, these 359 projects are still doable and delightful today. Like a miscellany for the home how-to crowd, the book offers instructions for making toy boats and planes, hammocks, sleds, skates, and special equipment for your own spy lab (such as periscopes), as well as fortunetelling tricks, illusions, games, and more. Charming original illustrations throughout make this an appealing, nostalgic, and fun guide for everyone.
