David Plagerson Noah's Arks
I trained as a painter at Camberwell School of Art. My initial inspiration came from the collection of European folk toys in the Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood where I took my recently arrived Bangladeshi students. They and I responded to the simplicity of design, strength of colour and fluidity of brushstroke decoration. I became particularly interested in the Noah's Ark sets reinforcing my love of hand-held objects and collections that can be arranged as a tableau.

Turner Handel Traditional Toys
Clare Pattinson (Turner Handel Traditional Toys) began making automata five years ago. It is the eclectic combination of skills: humour, illustration, caricature and mechanics that inspire her. With a background in ceramics, illustration and animation, it was whilst training to become a plumber, in 2009, that she began to think in a more mechanical way. She enjoys pulling items apart and examining them, and is not so worried about them breaking or not fitting back together again. In a world saturated with increasingly complex technology, these quirky mechanical toys show off their workings - springs, levers gears and cams. They creak into life and are delightful to engage with. Laughter, colour and movement are the elixir of art and life.

I have always needed to be making things, as time has gone on these get more elaborate. The toys are the commercial side of this necessity. There are many of the earlier toys in the range ( I started in 1981) ,now it also includes items that are only possible with modern computer controlled tools, and many in between: I make small and large arks using David Plagersons animals. Spinning tops with instructions. Colourful moving hanging discs. Oak baby walkers and chairs. There is also a sophisticated sculpture set, a balancing set of 5 dolphins in UK hardwoods and more. Please see the web site for pictures and descriptions.

We have been making wooden toys on our (very) small croft in Shetland since 1998. Our toys are inspired by everyday life here in the islands - crofting, inter-island ferries and aeroplanes. A lot of experimentation goes on in the workshop, especially with automata, and, because work is home and home is work, there is a great deal of discussion about what is possible, what is likely impossible and what could be lots of fun if only there was a way of achieving it.

Working with mixed media, I create pieces from cloth and fibre using a variety of techniques including hand stitching, collage and, most recently, needle felting. Sometimes I make things from wood too. Much of my inspiration stems from a collection of memories from childhood; simple pleasures and playthings of times past are those that appear, reinvented in my work. Creating three dimensional characters is the thing I love the most - currently Mouse, Hare and a huge variety of dogs are in the spotlight - and I look forward to welcoming new friends to my workbench very soon.....I also enjoy work as an illustrator of books for the very young. My pieces are intended as collectables only and therefore are not suitable for use as toys.

Rocking Horse Yard, Main Street, Fangfoss, YORK, YO41 5JH
I have been a full time maker for over thirty years and my work has covered a wide range, from dolls houses and moving toys for children and adults to automata, kinetic sculpture and exhibition design. I try to make things which move in simple but interesting ways: Traditional moving toys have influenced me strongly, and I have travelled in Europe, Indonesia, Mexico, India and Japan in search of them. My work incorporates a wide range of natural, reused and recycled materials. Recently they include driftwood, which I like using firstly because collecting it involves business trips to the seaside, and secondly because its previous uses often still haunt it, and its time at sea builds its character.

Muttley the Toymaker
Toymaking by my own definition is license to exaggerate the silliness and quirkiness of life that appeals to everyone who is a child at heart. I work in toys because I love the fun, the colour and the movement that this gives. My influences are many and varied from every day events to fairy tales, nursery rhymes, in fact anything with humour in it. I work principally in wood but will use a variety of other materials such as glass beads or easily worked metals. I especially enjoy making automata which provides a magic event to the turner of the handle and provides them with a great deal of pleasure.

The Little Toy Dog Company
Little Toy Dogs are fine quality, heirloom toys, designed by artist and illustrator Alice Wood and made by hand in her London studio. Original patterns are created from Alice's drawings and the dogs are sewn in mohair fur, wool felt and other fabrics. Each one has cotter pin jointed legs, glass eyes, and hand dyed and embroidered details which make every dog unique. They also have their own accessories: coats, collars, rosettes and scarves. They are highly characterful small textile sculptures, intended for older children and collectors. Alice trained in pattern cutting before studying BA Illustration at Camberwell School of Art and MA Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art.

Toys With Tools
Beautifully designed toys, handcrafted in hardwood, that encourage children to learn from the experiences associated with taking things apart and putting them back together. The more complex toys come with their own tools set, hardwood case and engraved brass plaque. These toys appeal to a very wide age range. Some of the toys, particularly those targeted at the under 3s, can be taken apart and put together again, without the use of tools, just by using fingers. All of the toys are finished to a high standard and as such may attract the attention of collectors, however, they are designed primarily to be played with. All products comply with the EN71 Toy safety standards.
