The smiles and joy this project brought was well worth the 30 hours in making it. It is made from solid Poplar and is a substantial piece. It weighs in at @ 90 lbs so it’s not something you want to be moving around.

I would sometime like to make a rocking CBR900, but a camel? Now that’s cool!!!! Good job and sustainable too makes it even better!

Who gets to ride it?

I’ll bet adults are tempted to try it out also.

I have to say, I’ve never seen a rocking camel, but this is pretty cool.

we’ve now seen elephants, motorcycles, trucks, goats and now camels. Some very lucky children out there!

How fun! It looks like it would be a lot of fun to ride on this. But, I’m a bit leary as to asking where the “hairy stuff” came from . . . Who’s chest?
