So I made these after the sand/water tables were made. These, and some boats….. that don’t like to stay upright :) The boats didn’t live very long, but these little guys are still going strong and get played with quite a bit.
The dump truck and dozer have been made before, but the scoop crane thing is new. New, and not exactly my favorite. Maybe I should have looked at some pictures and done some research first. What can I say, I got excited to get them into the kids hands. It was a fun one to make, and I’ll for sure be trying another generation of this little guy. The moving parts are a challenge that I think have a great payoff. So I’m excited to see where this sort of toy making takes me, and when the next ideas will hit me.

I hope you all enjoy them, and thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Who’s having more fun? You’ve got to test them first, right? Atta-boy.
