We are expecting our first, and got to know several couples in our birth classes. I made a toy car for each of the new babies. Most were freeform sketching on scraps I had laying around with 1” holes for little fingers The fanciest two tone car was from this plan
I hate the wooden pegs that serve as axles, I couldn’t get them to line up right so that all four wheels would be on the ground. I found by using 1/4 threaded rods and epoxying lock nuts (avoid choking hazards) the axle would float enough that all wheels would roll. This way they’re less likely to break when being roughly played with, and I actually liked how the nuts look.
Thanks for looking!
