I'd like to share a personal experience.

My father had come back from WWII with a deep distaste of any kind of weapon. So, when his male son was born, he had this resolve about not letting toy guns enter the house.

Then one day - I think I was three years old - I walked straight to him, pointed out my index finger, clicked my thumb and said 'bang'.

And then, my father went and *built* me a toy gun. Out of a wooden plank, he cut the shape of a tommy gun, then he carefully smoothed all the edges to make it reasonably child-proof. Finally, he wrapped the wood in colorful plastic tape - yellow, red, and green.

I couldn't tell how many battles the tommy gun has been through... In the end, I outgrew the toy; I am grateful to my mother who set it apart, it is a cherished memory to me.

I wonder how many kids are as lucky as we were, nowadays.

Daddy: Toymaker

Found your site
at the Yahoogroup:
"Assemblage Artists" -
With my dad, brother and me well into the early fifties' TV series,
"NAVY LOG", and having played the grooves out of a Mono LP of Richard Rodger's "Victory at Sea" (goosebumps just typing this...), we thought it well to have a sub and a subchaser, made of pine and dowelling, painted by the boys, finishing touches by Daddy. Nothing says 'love' like a home-made toy! Thanks for sharing yours!
