I made this one from pine. No really good reason other than some one mentioned here mentioned that they made Play Pals out of scraps of 2x4 that they had left. I got small pieces everywhere. So here it is.

This one is also finished with hand brushed shellac and sports red hubs which I think works good with the shellac. You may have noticed that I am using round windows on the thicker toys. I had a really hard time getting the windows cut right on my scroll saw in the thick stock I ruined a few bodies but I think I have it figured out. You have to use new or nearly new very sharp blades on the smallish size.  If they are cut right the scroll saw cut windows look better. However, if you mess one up its very hard to fix.

I just look around at what I have and try to make some thing from it. A few years ago I bought a large box of wheels at a yard sale and I'm always looking for something  that they will work on. I had a few wide body Play Pals cut out and was looking for the wheels for saw the big ones and thought I wonder. Glued them up and my grandson spoted them and said mine and took off with them. He loved them and every adult that saw them liked them so I started playing around with the idea. So far I have made around 15 of them all of them different. I have one really wide body laminated body with clear shellac on it that I'm going to have a hard time letting go It's very nice.
