Stacker Toys

I have always enjoyed the idea of stacker toys, you know the ones we had as kids! So I decided to make Brooks one that was a little bit different than the typical stacker you see and it sparked some ideas for some other styles too!

Finishing the flowers, with Tung oil finish.

I started with the square stacker and then tried the gears and flowers! I’m loving how all 3 turned out!

Stacker toys are great for teaching about colors and sizes, as well as practicing sorting skills biggest to smallest and smallest to biggest!

I designed each stacker with Easel and then cut each piece using the X-Carve, measured the dowels and glued them to the biggest piece. I finished the dowels and bottom pieces with Tung oil. Then I chose paint colors for the stacker pieces and painted each with Old Fashioned Milk Paint and finished them with Tung Oil.

I think Brooks has decided for himself!

Now, I’m trying to make the hard decision of which we will keep for Brooks the gears or the square stacker.
