My youngest daughter just loves horses (as many girls do) and asked me to make one for her ... so I did :) .
Because one horse ain't enough I needed to make another one ... carrying a rider this time.
Kids love animals. They don't have to be naturalistic Schleich figurines. Made from beech plywood and glued together in three layers you get wonderful toys. This kind of realization is especially suitable for pachyderm like elephants.
The pack contains tow different elephants, a rhino, a hippo, a bear and a camel.
The Triceratops become extinct 66 million years ago and might be one of the most popular dinos (besides the T-Rex). The most remarkable feature, the three horns is very suitable for the three-layer-technique. The neck frill demands a creative variance of the design idea.
The Stegosaurus is pretty famous because of the striking back panels. The spikes at the tails were sacrificed because of the simplification.
Inspired by the instractable submitted by WombatMorrison I merged the my 3-layered style with the hopping construction. For easy usage I designed a simple ramp.
The penguin was created for my aunt who's a "penguin lover". The expression puzzle is not really suitable, as it could be put together by a three year old.
