And a Happy October from the Toymaker’s Workshop!

The weather is finally cooling off a bit here and we are settled into the rhythm of school. The leaves are beginning to change colors and soup is starting to sound like a good idea.

I’m still drawing away on my hospital help book. I took the reference photos at the local children’s hospital last week. Everyone was so helpful and now I know what an X-ray machine really looks like. If you know of anyone that is planning a hospital visit go to You will find lots of good information for children there.

We are planning a little trip up the coast of California next month to Monterey. The Wonderhusband is teaching at a conference up there so we are packing the boy in the backseat and driving up to see OTTERS! (They have one of the finest aquariums in the world there.) If you would like about more of our adventures (most of which involve a very small stuffed dog) go here: The Toymaker’s Journal

New Halloween toys on!

In the Holiday section there are two new Halloween toys, Doctor Skelly's Magic X-Ray Camera and Professor Pumpkin's Boo Bus.

(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.)


Men say that in this midnight hour,
The disembodièd have power
To wander as it liketh them,
By wizard oak and fairy stream.
~William Motherwell


Wishing you a month of new adventures!
Keep using your superpowers for good!
