TOYS AND TALES works on three different levels - for young children it gives step-by-step instructions on how to make traditional folk toys with everyday objects. For older children it explains the scientific principles behind the working of these toys, and for parents and educators it places toys and the value of play in a larger social context, taking a look at pedagogy, consumerism and the toy industry. Including hand-pasted, full-colour photos on almost every page, TOYS AND TALES takes the craft-book form to a new and unprecedented level.
