How Toys Are MadeThe Spanish Toy Research Institute (AIJU) has produced a video that outlines the main manufacturing processes, different materials used, and other questions relating to toy manufacture and its history, in a simple straightforward way. The video is divided into two parts; the first is brief and simple and aimed at children, with a duration of ten minutes; the second is longer and goes into more detail, lasting about half an hour.
