Pedal Car Plans

DIY project

Amazing pedal car plans you can build. Surprise that someone special by building them a custom toy car. It does not really matter how old they are because everyone loves surprises. Imagine the look on their faces when you present them with your beautifully crafted custom toy car

Can it get any cuter than this? How to build your very own pedal airplane. 

Father and Son Project

A pedal car project makes a great father and son project, or grandfather and grandson project. They are having so much fun, soon the whole family wants to become involved. What better way to learn how to make things.

It is so much more fun when you invest some time and effort into a project like this, a way of spending quality time together and making memories that will last forever.

Sure, it is easy to just go and buy one, but it means so much more to a child if someone close to them actually made it. There is nothing to compare the sense of accomplishment of making something unique that will be treasured forever. Unique designs that look like cartoon airplanes.
