Most the bears I've made are on the next page
I've been making miniatures as long as I can remember, and selling what I make for more than 25 years.  Since I'm constantly coming up with new ideas, I never have everything in stock, and any catalogues I offered were full of things marked "Not available."  Now I'm taking a different approach, and I'm offering first a survey of  the miniatures I have made over the last 25 years.  If I have any of these available for sale, I will mark them "AVAILABLE," and you can find out more on the page Things for Sale.

If something is pictured here, it's because I enjoyed making it, and usually I would consider making another one. So if you see anything that specially attracts you, e-mail me and we can talk about possibilities. .

Frances Armstrong: Toys in Miniature
1. Toys
These are in 1/12 scale unless otherwise indicated, suitable for children three or four inches tall.  Usually the photos show them at life size.  I don't usually keep these next items in stock, but will make them upon special request.
Ark, which I make in sizes from 1/4 inch long to 1.5 inches long.  The roof is hinged, and animals are provided with a gangway to get on board.

I carve my own animals, in various sizes and various types of wood.
Bears that can climb up the strings they are hanging on. Carved out of various woods.  A working toy, though human fingers are a bit clumsy when they try to make the bears move .
Soldiers, wooden, 3/8 inch or 3/16 inches high.  Two kinds of uniform.
This little village was very popular, and I keep on meaning to make some again.  The houses are in various woods, and they fit on a board inlaid with a similar woods.  This, like the ark, is not a miniature of an existing toy, but my own interpretation of a miniature village.
