I have made this wooden toy before but instead of painting I relied on using different wood species to add color contrasts. This time the toy is painted using non-toxic water based paints. When pulled, the two guys pump the handles so there is quite a bit of action to it. It will be donated at Christmas along with others for children of needy families.

Thanks for looking.

I like theese kinds of toys but have been reluctant to make them for my own kids becuase I am unsure if they can take the abuse they would surely get. Very cool though!

For sure kids abuse toys. However, my approach is to hope that some child will react to a “nice” toy by taking care of it ( development of a sense of responsibility ). If that happens on a ratio of 1 in 10 then the effort of making the toys has been worthwhile.
