This is a replica of an old toy. After some try and err I was able to remake a working climber using few tools and scrap materials.
Hope you enjoy it  ;-) .



Step 1:

Materials :
  1. Wooden sticks or tong depressors.
  2. Toothpicks or bamboo sticks.
  3. Some felt for the pads (you'll see later on where to use them).
  4. Cotton string.
  5. Rubber band (small size).
  6. Glue.

Tools :
  • Hand drill
  • Exacto blade/knife
  • Scissor
  • PC and a Printer (optional)
<p>Hi Franky,</p><p>Nice instructions. I've made this however it doesn't climb. Something to do with the felt i guess. The string doesn't seem to feed through. Can you share as to what the felt does and how its expected to work?</p>
Very interesting, thanks for sharing.
So what exactly does this do?
Hi Chris, you are too young to remember this toy !<br> <br> It does what the title says.&nbsp; If you pull down and stretch the line, the toy will climb up in a very life-like manner.<br> <br> Franky
Always love the traditional toys!
