I have had no time to make toys lately but i decided with dad to make a truck, but i wanted something different, as usual :)

found the basic idea on the web and then i tough to make it a little more interactive, so i painted it with chalk paint that i did myself with grout and paint, as the blackboard paint here will cost me like 15 USD ( that a lot here) and for a little project did not see the need to buy it.

the paint seems to work quite well, it erases as any chalkboard will do and there is plenty space in the truck for chalk.

Dad did the main body and i did the wheels, the only thing i wish is that i had a better way to put the wheels other that screws, i could do the pins for them but that will take to much time and we would have to charge more for it. maybe for a gift i would do it a little bit more detailed.

thanks!

N.
