Do you want to build a toy for a child – or someone else why is young at heart? Can’t find any well-designed plans?
Toys and Joys may be the place you can find what you need. Founded in 1981 by archetecural draftsman and industrial arts teacher Phil Vander Ploeg, the site features numerous plans for sale.
While the site does feature plans for bookshelves, desks and riding toys, the vast majority of the plans are for exacting replicas of vehicles. Cars, trucks, tractors, trains… the list is extensive and the completed projects are impressive.
There is also a customer corner featuring projects built by satisfied clients. It’s amazing to see the variety of woods used in the toys – no doubt there are many satisfied ‘customers’ receiving the gifts.
