My advice, buy them. If not, make a cylinder on the late, cut on the thickness you wont and rout them, if you wish. If you know how, make them completely on the late. If you put them on the router first look my topic-Toy’s wheel routing, not finger routing-. Also, try to find old topics with search.

It can be as simple as putting the axles off center so that the wheel lopes as it goes around. If you do all 4 corners with different offsets the action will be really wobbly.

Put the axle fractionally of centre on the wheels and you have a CAM action wobbly .Why not read a few books on puppet making and toy making and you will see this over and over again it was part of the old Cam action of making beautiful toys work where arms and legs of stationary diaorama type set ups would move out of sunch with each other or even in synch.i forget the correct term tonioght anyway have fun.Alistair

You forgot one, which might your best solution:

Actually, this might make it more humpy, than wobbly. But I doubt the child would care.

Have your say...
