A new toy! Here is a paddle steamer to take you on imaginary adventures.

Back when my great grandmother was a little girl, people traveled in boats powered by steam engines. They would puff up and down rivers and across lakes to visit new places.

Stop by my blog and read all about our merry adventures.
And do say hello! I’d love to hear from you!

March is right around the corner! Spring is just starting to peak in here and I hope that it finds you getting ready to bloom and grow in new ways too. Things have been busting out here as well. There have been over a million and a half toys downloaded so far and I'm hoping to hit two million by the end of the year. So... my sincere thanks to everyone that passed on www.thetoymaker.com to their friends and family. My goal is to help grownups and kids spend time together making things and I appreciate your support.

Best thoughts,
