    Everything seems to come full circle in life, this is another great example. Simpler times. What scale are these toys? They look great.

    yeah, there is a little toy store in Tacoma that sells them,
    I'm at a toss-up as to buy some for my grand daughter who is too young for them,
    or for myself who is too old for them :)

    Wow!! Very cool. Need more info!!!
     
  10. I totally agree with the "real toys", I made a car hauler for my nephew 2 years ago for his first Christmas, he seems to really like them. For his 2nd Christmas i made 2 more trailers for the truck, a box and a flat bed. They are out of Hickory, so they should be tough enough to last a long time. I even turned some steel spacers for the axles to ride on.

    My dad built us many wooden cars/trucks, and trains when we were little. He kept many of them for grandchildren and are still in great shape today. When I have a kid one day I'll do the same.
     
  18. I've had this one since I was a kid.

    I made my son a roadster for his first christmas, and a dual-cockpit runabout for his second. Next will be a trailor, so he can pull the boat with his car!

    I surfed the PlayForever website. Their designer toys are made from ABS plastic with rubber tires. $60 for a plastic designer toy!
     
  26. These look really sweet! My only concern with anything overseas is are they Chinese with the lead paint. If they are made in Japan or Europe they should be fine.

    Cool! It reminds me of working in my grandfather's little home shop downstairs when I was about 6 or so. The first big tool I learned to use was the band saw to cut sections of my Great Grandfather's old cane to make wheels for a toy truck we were building. Who knew that I would be using these same skills everyday 40 years later? For that matter, who in this overly safety consious world today would tell a 6 year old kid that it's O.K. to use a full sized band saw?! I miss my Grandpa....
