Miss Marilyn who is The Toymaker has the jolliest website I’ve discovered in many a year! Marilyn also shares children’s stories called ‘Firelight Stories’. These stories are whimsical and endearing in ways that only authors from the British Isles know how to create. Just listen to these titles: Whimbit, Moon Weaver, Patrin Busby, The Royal Toymaker’s Apprentice of the Lone Isles, The Violin Cat, The Return of Doctor DragonWagon and Miss Marilyn’s own When a Griffin Comes to Visit. (delicious titles, don’t you think?). Just gazing at the book covers is a pleasure. Brings to mind my beloved Visit to William Blake’s Inn. There is a page devoted to two otters named Charles and Brook, whom you can print paper dolls from. The otters go on adventures and there are printable clothing for them, suitable for many occasions.
By simply adding your email address, Marilyn, The Toymaker, will send you links for free toys to share with family and friends. There is a confirmation email, but no cost and nothing to download. The Toymaker makes her paper toys and crafts available free. All she asks is that we might make a few extra and share them with a child who could use some Christmas magic.How wonderful. I plan to do just that. After our 10 year-old spends some time in The Toymaker’s fairyland, I will bring some to school. As a substitute teacher, I sometimes need a little perk to share with students. The Toymakers free printable toys will be just the golden ticket. Happy Christmas!
