Updates

Prototype of the Bad Bob Motors Coupe coming soon to Odin's toy factory. This one is currently being tested by Qualtiy Assurance aka grandson. There is also a Sedan in the works. Eight of them will be for sale.
A new car body is being sanded to rough shape using a spindle sander. Sanding machines only get you close the final sanding has to be done by hand if you wan a quality finish. Some you makers just rough them out to make them fast. I can't do that.

About

How I came to Etsy

I have been making toys since I was a kid. In the beginning, they were quite crude. My only tool was a Boker pocket knife my Dad gave me. I remember my Dad teaching me how to make slingshots and willow whistles. I made all sorts of toys with that knife. It lasted until I was a teenager and the blade finally wore out.

After my kids were born the world they lived in was diffrent. I made small toys and other items for them, but no slingshots, bows or willow whistles. They got older and didn't care so much for toys anymore. About the same time my military carrier ended and I had to start over with a new career. Toy making went on the back burner while I worked on learning new skills.

Four years ago, my grandson, Odin was born. As soon as he started pushing thing around the floor I made him a car and truck. He was fascinated with helicopters (wop-wops), so I made a helicopter. The came stacking toys, puzzles, a rocking horse, and more cars and trucks. Now everything I make gets tested by Odin. He is my Quality assurance tester and now picks colors for painted toys.

I have always loved making things. Toys probably more than anything. I wanted to work some craft shows, but the startup cost was too high. When I discovered Etsy, it seemed like a perfect fit for me. I have woodworking skills, I love making toys, know a bit about photography, and I have 35 years of computer experience. Add the low startup cost, and it is a perfect match.

My first goal is to make the best quality toys. Toys I am proud of and hopefully some toys that will be family heirlooms. Not models or art but real toys that kids can play with. Not toys their parents put on a shelf.
