Silas is my neighbor’s 3-year old nephew. Silas wanted a dinosaur pull toy. He insisted it be red and that it have a brown knob to pull on. In addition to meeting those requirements I added his name using crushed stone and epoxy, and also I embedded stones, shells and a tiny starfish in the base.

I had Silas help glue the dinosaur to the base and attach the rope.

The last image shows the happy recipient. He played with his red dinosaur for three hours after he and I did the final assembly.
