So some friends are leaving town permanently for Vancouver and we are getting together this weekend with them and their two boys, one older and the other younger than The Dragon. I’ve had it in mind to make a Dino-Train set so I decided to make a couple of dinos for the boys as going away presents.

Took about three hours to make the two and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out as tests. I’ll do them again and I think they will be better from what I learned on these two. Bigger feet to support the axles, longer legs and probably not a Dimetradon. I was told it looks like a turtle.

These are pretty cool to give the boys as going away presents, and the Dimetradon does look kinda like a turtle. He is still cute though!

these are great…they will keep these forever as opposed to some store bought toy that they will grow out of…thus your bond/connection will always remain for generations!!!

Great looking toys for kids, and great thoughtfulness. No matter what they look like to the kids, they will look like a toy to them. Mike

The kids will play with these while they are young and cherish them as the grow older. Great gift.
