Toys from Trash
Look Inside the Book
Description
Back of The Book

Get the junk out of the trunk and fashion it into cool toys that promise endless hours of fun.

Create over 50 toys—a cool stick figure from ice cream sticks, a snazzy goody bag from an old plastic bottle, a simple spoon propeller from plastic spoons and even a complicated water turbine from a water bottle and drinking straws. All out of readily available material.

The step-by-step instructions and simple and clear illustrations make this handy book to have at home to tide over long vocations.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA
I have received the book Evolution II.  Thank you so much for all of your assistance in making this book available to me.  You have been so helpful and kind.

Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
