Last minute gift for my daughter. I decided to make her a Santa’s workshop style toy every year. All credit goes to David Wakefield for the design. If you’re interested in making something like this his book is great.

The wheels I ordered came a little undersized, so he kind of drags instead of rolling, he might have to take a trip back to the workshop.

Very Nice !!!

Both your hippo and your design attribution. David’s a good friend of mine and I’ll be emailing him the link to your post.

Great job! I really enjoy and appreciate David Wakefield’s toys as well as John Hutchinson delightfully complex designs.
