Reviews

"Made by Dad: 67 Blueprints for Making Cool Stuff by Scott Bedford is so good it hurts--'cause you know that if your own dad had had this book in his hands, your childhood would have totally rocked. "Chock-full" doesn't even come close to describing the teeming nature of this tome. The fun photos, cool diagrams, clear instructions and handy cut-out templates run the gamut from wacky home decorations and gadgets (like setting up a Bunk Bed Communicator) to subversively educational science projects (like getting sucked into a Gravity-Defying Black Hole) to zany party ideas (like making Radioactive Sports Drinks)."

"Hey, dad, want to ratchet up your coolness quotient? Pick up a copy of Scott Bedford's new book."

-Chicago Tribune

"I made the mistake of leaving this book on the coffee table recently where my nearly 5-year-old scooped it up, spent 30 minutes paging through it and then cornered me in the kitchen with a list of projects from it he wanted to make. . . .Moms, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friendly neighbors would all make good ring leaders for these projects. . . .My son was enchanted."

"A treasury of 67 clever, exciting and imaginative projects. ... Getting kids to make and create instead of simply consume and use is a challenge for parents. ... Made by Dad provides a good place to begin."
-Wall Street Journal

"Remember all the crazy things you made as a kid, like ramps for toy cars or contraptions for pulling pranks? In his first book, illustrator Bedford, who also blogs at What I Made, gets in touch with his inner child. With a host of silly projects, this title is directed at parents looking for interactive activities for their children. . . . What's not to love? This engaging compilation is clever and entertaining. A fantastic book."
