This was a gift for our neighbor, who had just started walking. The legs move together as the rear wheels turn. From a plan by Jim Makowicki. The most difficult for me was actually the eyes, which are the first time I’ve made anything with a lathe. I should have just bought a ball and sawn it in half, but I already had the dowel stock.
It’s maple, with purchased pegs and beads for the legs and antennae.
