Ha, Ha, Ha, and a huge smile is the reaction people have when they see this in action for the first time, the Joy it brings is worth the time and effort it takes to get them , “just right.”
Thank you all for your kind comments.

Hi Pie, Jim Makowiki’s Book “Making Heirloom toys” has detailed plans for this charmer, as well as a whole lot more, see my latest post.

Good Looking Bug!! I have this book, and have made close to a dozen of these little critters myself. The articulated pull toys are always a big hit at craft fairs.
