I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.
~ William Shakespeare


Thank You From The Toymaker’s Workshop!




A Rarity Show

Get your sharpest scissors out.

This toy will take a bit of careful cutting, but you can do it and you can create your own magical scene.

If you look through the peep holes you will see the moon and an angel.

(Computer Tip – If the new toys are not showing up on your screen, try hitting the refresh button on the browser bar. If that doesn’t work try emptying your cache.)


Anyone who donates more than forty dollars to the Toymaker this month will receive a special bunny paper cutout, suited to framing, shipped inside one of my paper toy books with my heartfelt thanks.

(If you would like for me to sign the book to someone special, just let me know.)



Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.
~ James Matthew Barrie

A Talking Rhino

Everybody needs a talking rhino to play with. Write your own silly sayings and have fun rocking him back and forth.




I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. ~ G.K. Chesterton



Hello and hello!

Last month I asked everyone on my mailing list to buy a copy of The Toymaker's Workshop, in the hopes that enough books would be sold for the publisher to change their minds and print bunches more.

You'll never guess what happened. Before I sent out the newsletter the sales rank for The Toymaker's Workshop was somewhere around 55,000. A couple of hours after sending the email the number hadn't changed at all. I was despondent.

When I peeked back after dinner the book was up to number 101! I was flapping like a penguin. Then it went up to number 77. When I got up the next morning my book had climbed up to 48. It peaked at number 37 on the Barnes and Noble website, was number three in all of children's books, number 1 in both paperback books for kids and in craft books.

My book sold out in Amazon US, Amazon UK and Amazon Canada.

Thank you, friends. You made my year!

Best thoughts,

We are three or four times blessed.

A portion of the sales on goes to The Toymaker so I can make more toys for children all over the world. From my friend Steve's new company. Cashmere shawls softer than a kitten's ear. Check it out!
