Thanks to TopamaxSurvivor for the original post

Each Labor Day, we do a large pig pickin in a log cabin community in the NC mountains. Every year the kids get a little bored/antsy whilst us fellas babysit the cookers. So I borrowed TopamaxSurvivor’s design and made a few tractors. I took the un-assembled pieces, glue, paint, and screws and the kiddies had a blast. They did all of the painting and glueing, and I helped them tighten the screws. They pushed several tons of dirt before the paint dried.

Fantastic idea.I’ll bet you were driving one as well when they started pushing the dirt. (I know I do)

I love it, and I have sonother thing to keep the kiddos busy in the neighborhood. I hopw you don’t mind if I copy them for the kiddos.

Great idea, and very satisfying I am sure.

Nice job. They are always a hit with kids. Thanks for the plug, but credit has to go to my cousin Bud about 60 years ago for the original model:-))
