DIY wooden robot - wooden toy for kids (woodworking)
If you want to make a simple wooden toy with a minimum of tools or are looking for the first woodworking experience for older kids, try this robot! While this little robot lacks realism or fantastic articulation, he definitely possesses all the charm of a toy made with love. Why else would he be wearing his heart where everyone can see it? The final result isn’t an elaborate toy, but it’s made of natural materials and safe for babies and toddlers to handle and teeth on (of course, under reasonable parental supervision).
