garywisbey - That is a super looking gliding rocking horse. It looks like you can get up to a real gallop on that one. Your pull toys must be a great hit also. Good job Gary - Udie

Gary,

All toys are so beatiful but the glider horse is amazing. I would like to make a glider horse like yours and I'll try to make it, but, here in Brazil we don't have the hardware like this iron glider, I have to get some locksmith to make one.
Congratulations on the beautiful toys.

Hi Gary

Again you did a great job with the rocking horse.

I really like the pull toy duck.  I need to find a signature toy for my business.
My business name is FuzzyDuck Creations, so maybe I could steal you pull toy duck for use as a signature toy for my business.  Would that be OK with you, if I started making a pull toy just like yours?

Nice work.
Ken

hi all ken thats fine to make and use the pull duck sounds just right for you. the push duck sdaupanner is talking about i have also made many years back i used bits of leather for there feet i got hold of a book years back on toymaking from a junk shop at southsea not sure if i have still got it not realy sure were to look. the one bad thing on a lot of my ealy toys is i don't think i have many pics as i was making them for feands and family members not selling them i might find more on the back disk i found you never know.

hey that looks great love the colours did you use plywood for the base what i done on the cord on mine to stop the cord coming loosh  is open up a paper clip then heat it up a bit then lay it over the cord were its tied it melts a bit but it will stop the cord  coming undone.

Yes Gary it's a plywood base and turned the handle wheels and axles from different size dowel rods don't know how the ply will hold up before it splits, Guess I'll take it for a walk and see. lol
