The first one of these I built, it only had a few pieces for my grandkids to assemble and then dis-assemble.

The 2nd one I built had 23 pieces, but I gave it away as a gift.

My 5 year old grandson loves to take stuff apart and put it back together… I decided to build a 3rd one…...and paint it.

You can the details about this project on my woodworking web sight here.

I uploaded my design to the Sketchup Warehouse and you can download it here.

Well done! That’s complicated enough to keep a child busy for a while, but simple enough that they’ll be able to do it with a little thought.

Great way to keep a kid busy! Love it! And I would have loved to have this little red truck as a kid also!
I’m still taking things apart to make them work again!
