Wow-these are pretty cool for a first build or for someone who has been a toymaker who has been making wood toys all their life! Great photos and great colors. We love them!

Great looking toys. 
Looks like you made the wheels yourself also, which came out really well.

Thanks for sharing your work

Cheers

Play Pals are simple to make and the kids seem to love them. They are easy to resize and the variations seem to be endless. Search the forum for Play Pals and you will see a lot of them.

Great job.

Love them!  I made a set of these for a friend's son and he told me the other day that his daughter plays with them more than his son.  Definitely surprised.  You've done a great job!

A great first build.
I like these and the colors add a lot of class to them.
When I first made these for the grandson I tried giving them to him non painted. The first words out of his mouth was can we paint them, LOL

I still make some to give away from time to time as they are quick to make and roll out the door.
