Though your wife may not be thrilled with the idea of having the sheets on such a bed I bet your kid thinks you’re the year’s best Dad.
I’d be inclined to agree with the kid.
Well done.

Great project! Does it roll? Steering? Bong holder? (It is a microbus!)

Love all the detail, like the headlights, and front VW chrome, and the stickers on the back. I bet the steering wheel is a big hit. Working horn? too cool!. Very nice project!

hub caps, steering wheel, headlights – It’s hard to imagine how thrilled your kids are and most likely too young to understand the thought and design involved. A great great job well done.
Did you have to make a schedule for turns with the steering wheel ?

Drive me to the bedroom!....
