In the free project that is offered here you can find drawings to help you make stacking rings toy, possibly one of the best toys ever made.

The Stacking Rings toy is an educational toy for children aged 1-2 years. At this age, the child starts arranging objects on top of each other, practicing skills, getting to know of aspect ratio, and solving small problems. The Stacking Rings toy is one of the simplest stackers - constructional toys, and it gives the child a freedom to experiment and practice precision. It gives a task to the child to arrange 10 circles of various sizes and colors on the conic mast, while there is only one, correct arrangement that makes it possible to put all the rings on it, and to place the sphere on the top.

Since the stacking rings toy is designed for really young children, much attention should be paid to wood finishing. The wood should be completely smooth, and in this way, the risk of splinters in the child's fingers will be avoided. Only child-safe wood and finishing should be used, because at this age, the child still puts many things into his/her mouth. The dimensions of the Stacking Rings toy parts are small enough so that the child can easily hold them with his/her small hands, and large and safe enough for the child not to be able to swallow them. We recommend that you make this Ring Tower of light wood, which can be finished easily, so that the surface remains completely smooth.
