The Toymaker

The Sun Box

Recently I stumbled upon this site The Toymaker and was delighted by its presentation. Marilyn Scott Waters makes paper toys and they are just wonderful! And you can download them yourself and print them out!

The designs are quite whimsical and often accompanied by creative little stories or poems.

If You See A Faery Ring
~ William Shakespeare

If you see a faery ring
In a field of grass,
Very lightly step around,
Tip-toe as you pass,
Last night faeries frolicked there
And they're sleeping somewhere near.
If you see a tiny faery,
Lying fast asleep
Shut your eyes
And run away,
Do not stay to peek!
Do not tell
Or you'll break a faery spell.

She has a whole section just devoted to the different holidays and little gift ideas.

A storybook section...

And even paper dolls!

I can't begin to tell you the scope of this site, Marilyn has put so much time into it, you can easily tell. The stories, props and just plain fun involved are priceless. So if you have a little one who needs some fun...or you're just a fan of paper art and games this is the place to be. I know I dont have any little ones anymore..but I am eyeing that sun box ^_^
