This is the first in a series of wooden toys that I will introduce in the craft store where I sell most of my product. Made entirely from wood, it has three coats of child safe paint and will get two coats of child safe gloss finish. It is about 5 inches long, 3 inches wide and 3 inches tall.

The unit requires no batteries, is designed to stimulate the mine to think of creative ways to use and play with the wide car. The tires were left a little rough as those on an off-road racer.

Other items simular to this will be out next week. Thanks for looking.

When I was a kid most of the toys we had were homemade wooden toys. Many of them were made by my dad who was also an avid woodworker. They do not have the finess of present day toys but they are just a joy to have. I don’t have anyone of them now but whenever I see one I always get the feeling of nostalgia. They outlast those hi-tech toys of the present. Nice work, Jerrells, you just transported me to the past.
