My middle son was the inspiration for these crafty wooden cars. As a toddler he was obsessed with vehicles. So to keep us both happy I used his cars in sensory play and painting activities. The car wheels make great patterns in dough and paint so I’ve incorporated this idea into my design.
Each coloured wooden car, features a differently patterned wheel which makes a distinctive print. Use the cars with your toddler to get creative with paint and play dough or just drive them around.
All the parts are hand turned on the lathe, individually painted and finished with a natural plant based varnish. This gives the car durability. without a plastic coating.
