Ride on Toys
Is it easier to lift a bag full of toys with an inclined plane or a pulley? Readers will see how a group of kids compares two simple machines and decides which one does a better job.
Did you ever want to waddle with a colony of penguins? Wriggle with an army of caterpillars? Or march with a troop of monkeys? Legendary illustrator Lane Smith takes us on a colourful adventure through the natural world, following a child as he weaves through the jungle, dives under the ocean and soars into the sky. Along the way he makes friends and causes mischief with a dazzling array of creatures both large and small - but can he find his own kind? Full of warmth and humour, There Is a Tribe of Kids is a sumptuously detailed portrayal of wild childhood to be pored over for hours on end. A witty and playful exploration of curiosity, discovery and what it means to belong, ideal for sharing with children of all ages. Sprinkled with beautiful gold flecks and specially designed peek-through flaps at the front and back.
Since the dawn of children's television in the 1950s, toy companies have been keen to capitalise on the success of these programmes. Toy historian and collector Anthony A. McGoldrick here charts the history of the most successful TV toys from Muffin the Mule in the 1950s to Star Trek: The Next Generation in the 1980s. The colourful illustrations - whether of Daleks, iconic cars, action figures or spaceships - evoke the excitement of the programmes and also of playing with the toys that allowed children to recreate them. Whether you grew up in the days of Andy Pandy, The Saint, Kojak or Knight Rider, this book offers a nostalgic look at some of the most appealing toys of the late twentieth century.
