Jim has always been quite artisitc. His latest outlet is making wooden toys. He has such fond memories of playing with his Little People Playsets with his Sesame Street Little People. He has been making his own characters (and some Sesame Street characters) for his own boys for years now and has recently started selling them on Ebay. Lots of people still have their Little People Playsets (we do) but they don't make the characters to go with them anymore. Now the Little People playsets and characters are different, quite a bit bigger. I told hubby he needs to figure out how to make a playset to go with his characters. He is thinking about it, he might start out with a car they can sit in and go from there.
Here are some pictures of what he has made:
Oscar the Grouch
McDonald Land Characters
Laurel and Hardy, in black and white!
Kermit and Fozzie Bear
As you can see, my boys love Starwars. They play the Starwars Lego game (computer and Wii) all the time and that is the inspiration for these Starwars characters.
Here are a few of my husband's original characters:
These are the current characters for sale on Ebay right now:
