Toymaker (3.5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Toymaker [Item Creation]
You are adept at creating minor wondrous items
You may imbue an item weighing no more than 1 pound with a prestidigitation effect. It takes approximately 20 minutes to make one of these items. There is a cost of 20xp and the value of the item to be enchanted. Items made with this feat are not capable of inflicting damage or granting bonuses of any type. There is no magical backlash if one of these items are broken. On high magic worlds there are probably millions of these minor items about, either being used as toys or useful household articles. Items created by this feat are scarcer on lower magic worlds.
Wizards may select this feat as their first-level bonus feat instead of Scribe Scroll.
Most of these items cost anywhere from 10 to 100 gp each (more for sets), this is due to the fact that these items are not made with high end material components, i.e. the Magic Mortar and Pestle is simply a normal mortar and pestle that has been enchanted as opposed to a mortar and pestle carved from dragon bone.
