They're playful and delightful, and they'll redefine your idea of what a toy can be! These charming mechanical contraptions will surprise and engage anyone who operates them-and they'll entice the creative woodworker too, because these whirligigs are as much fun to make as to maneuver. Take Grandad's Night Out, for example. Over 6000 kids have already wound up this wild and wonderful gadget with its handsomely dressed dancing figure on a box. Musically inclined woodworkers might make the pianist at his instrument. Turn the handle and his hands move up and down the keys. The secret to these movable marvels: propellers and other action-filled parts made from wood or metal. Full size schematics and drawings, plus detailed written instructions, will guide you smoothly through building, carving, and assembling such enchanting projects as Politically Incorrect Weather House (it contains a hygrometer to measure humidity) and Mr. Muscles & Little Ms Threemore, two exercise buffs who will work out for you!
