Extract from back cover of book:

Speed Toys for Boys is a classic woodworking guide featuring old-fashioned four-wheeled projects for carts, scooters, pushmobiles, and more! Also included are projects for winter, such as a sled, bobsled, scooter sled, and toboggan. The book was originally published in 1928, a time when tens of thousands of kids were involved in manual arts classes and pushmobile contests.

Included are timeless projects with complete plans and instructions, many simple enough for older childen and teenagers to follow, and all appealing to the hobbyist woodworker. These nostalgic projects will also be of interest to grandparents looking to construct the carts and wagons of their youth for their grandchildren.
