Home made toys are not as common now as they were long ago. The toys that you see at present are nearly all bought ones. The toys that are made at home are usually, "Dolls and "Teddy Bears" When making toys you first buy the cloth, then you cut it into the shape of a Doll or a Teddy Bear and stuff them with cloth, then you sew it up and it is finished. Children derive great pleasure in the making of those toys cutting them out and trying to make them a success.
