Talking Some new toys

I haven't been around for a while because I was really busy trying to get my wife and my toy business going. I made few new toys and I'm constantly working on expanding the lines.
Here is the new Mini Roller Series, starting with my bug

next the racecar

the bus

and the monstertruck


Also I have made some bigger vehicles, a sedan with two figures

and a pickup truck


All vehicles are made from poplar and have birch accents. The sedan has a bubinga grill and walnut lights and the pickup has walnut taillights.

Last but not least my wife makes really cute stuffed animals including some seasonal specials like santa and a reindeer that are definitely worth checking out.

Very cool. I really like the wheels that are spherical. Very unique, very cool. Do you turn those then?

Nice work! I had wood and metal toys, some of the metal ones would have been worth big bucks today.

Harrison, at your service!

Thank you! The wheels are pre-made, 3/4 " on the small cars and 1" on the monstertruck. I think they are called dowel end caps. The toys actually roll much better than ones with disc wheels, my sons matchbox cars are no match for the monstertruck :-)

I am in my shop again making more of them. If anyone would like some as stocking stuffers go to my website (in my signature) or search etsy for mini rollers

Great looking toys. Nice choice of woods and the designs are clean looking. Fantastic work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
