Hello. Does anyone know of a source for toy handplanes? I tried google and couldn’t find anything. I am between shops right now or I would make one. Any ideas?
Thanks.

I have seen really teeny planes at Harbor Freight.

Check on ebay. Seems there is usually one by Marx for sale. Added bonus…..they will cut wood, too.

I built my kiddo a hand plane, but it really is just a full sized hand plane that I replaced the blade with another piece of wood. Maybe just buy an el cheapo wood plane off ebay like this one and swap out the blade?

Nice Bandit. That Marx one is better than I was expecting for a toy handplane. The black and decker hand tool set, I think for home depot has a hand plane, but it’s pretty bad.

Marcus’s option is pretty good. Either ebay or a local antique shop/flea market, etc, should get you a cheap wooden plane with a missing blade that you could replace with a wooden one.

Are you looking for toy tools without sharp edges then ebay Little Tikes tools. If you are looking for jr. tools that actually have sharp edges that’s a different story.

My grandson and granddaughter fight like crazy over the little tikes drill we have.

I was hoping to find one for my 3 year old. He uses blocks or any shape thing he can find to plane things. I looked up Little Tykes and bid on a couple but did not see any planes. I think I might take my #3 and take the blade out. Good ideas. Thanks.

The new Stanley planes they sell at the BORG are pretty much toys.

How about grabbing a handy andy toolset off of ebay? Depending on completeness you should be able to get one with a plane and other tools for under $50 shipped.
