Toy Horse Barn (with working hay bale hoists)

I built this horse barn for my grandkids to play with last Xmas time. Besides the normal sliding stable doors, I added 2 co-axial rotating shafts to the hay loft area of the barn. Each shaft has a sewing machine bobbin which serves as a pulley and 2 external knobs for the kids to hoist the hay bales. It turned out to be a big hit with the kids (and even with their parents)!
