Inspired by others who have made toys for Christmas charitable toy drives, I decided to make some small wood toy cars. This is the first batch of probably three for this season. These are easy to make and quite inexpensive with the wheels accounting for 80% of the cost. I have been able to purchase a few dozen small boxes (6”x4”x3” and 7”x4”x4”) and have made custom box labels for each type of car – these should be a very nice addition to the hamper of the local toy drive.
