DIY Toymaking in These Our Modern Times

by Alisha K.

Using a hodgepodge of items, like an Altoids tin, and enough coding knowledge to get the job done, father and DIYer Paulbo put together a homemade traffic light for his daughters to use when they played with their toy cars.

As neat as this project is (and neat is really an understatement, all I can think is: please don’t let my car enthusiast toddler see this. Mommy doesn’t even have the mint tin, much less any sort of ability to wire things together.
