There comes a time in toddlerhood where kids are too small for a tricycle or balance bike but are enamored with the idea of propelling themselves on something with wheels. The ride-on toy is the perfect fit for this stage of development. Here is a handsome one that you can build yourself and customize however you see fit.This design at Made By Joel couldn't be simpler and it looks absolutely refreshing for that very fact. Made from basic materials available at any home center, it can be constructed in an afternoon. It is sturdy, low to the ground and small enough to tuck away in a corner when not in use. We especially like the red stripes and the super-thoughtful place for toy storage in the back.
In a world cluttered with overdone, commercially-linked toys, this one stands out for all of the right reasons.
