Find out about the Who What Where and Why of Toy Tinker Tim

Toy Tinker Tim circa 1976
“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct.” -Carl Jung

Toys were  a big part of my everyday life growing up.  They’ve fueled my imagination and helped start conversations when I was shy. They gave me a way to work things out and help make sense of the environment.

Here I share repair tips and info that I’ve developed from my education and work in fine art, and commercial art.  There are also collector tips on vintage toys that I pass on as well.  It’s a way to reflect and appreciate the design, creativity, and evolution of toys and through them observe our society as interests and topics change and evolve.
