Pottery Barn Kids Knock-Offs

My dad has talent when it comes to music and woodworking. I wanted to show off his woodworking skills today with some pictures of some toys he made for my boys at Christmas.

The inspiration came from these Pottery Barn Kids toys I saw in this picture:

Using that picture for inspiration, my dad made a few extremely cute vehicles for my boys.


These two were the ‘prototypes’. IMG_3686 IMG_3688

Then he deviated a bit from the PBK inspiration and made this enormous fire truck. My dear two-year old has a great interest in “Pirepighters” [firefighters].
