Noah’s Ark was made for my granddaughter’s day care school. The plans came from Rodney Peppe’s book Moving Toys. I modified it some for hard extend use of a school and eliminated the small animals, replacing them with a couple larger ones of my own design. Non toxic red paint on the roof and natural finish on everything else.

I like it, pretty cool. I was thinking about making some toys but I am a little hesitant because of the new law on the books requiring wooden toys to be tested for lead and certified. That makes it a bit expensive for ordinary joes like us when it costs 100’s or 1000’s of dollars to get it done.

Pretty darned cool though.

Also, thanks for putting the reference in your post. I am checking out that book now.

The top lifts off and you stack the animals inside 2×2. Noah and his wife too.

This is beautiful piece of work, and appears to be built rugged enough to hold up with lots of little fingers playing with it. Any Sunday School in the land would love to have it. Nice job!
