Make your own traditional wooden toy car.

This complete kit contains everything you need to make a toy car. Decorate it any way you want to make a truly unique toy!

Great activity to complete with children; just for fun, or to develop skills in planning and making.



Make your own wooden toy car with this complete wooden craft kit. This model is styled on 1950s big-finned cars like the ’57 chevy, but it could also be a futuristic space car or whatever you want! See other listings for kits including bus, pickup truck and hot rod.

Designed for adults to assemble, alone or working with a child to develop early woodworking (and other) skills, these kits include the same components we use to make our traditional wooden toy cars. Suitable for finishing with a wide variety of paints, pens, varnishes, stickers – whatever you want. We even include an extra test block to so you can try your ideas out first!

The kit includes:

  • 1 x Body – Classic Car. FSC certified pine
  • 4 x 32mm (1 1/4″) Wheels. Maple or Birch
  • 2 x Axles. Sycamore or Birch
  • 4 x Washers
  • 1 x Abrasive – coarse
  • 1 x Abrasive – fine
  • 1 x Glue. EN-71 child-safe Bindan-P “propeller” glue
  • 1 x Assembly notes
  • Test/practice block

No tools are required to complete the kit.

The body is supplied cut to shape but will need final sanding to final profile, for smoothness – or to modify the shape if you wish.
Axles are cut to size and wheels are ready to use.

Dimensions: the finished car is 120mm (4 1/4″) long x 50mm (2″) high x 42mm (1 3/4″) wide.
We post in a padded envelope that fits through a letterbox.

Please Note:

This kit is not a toy. It is designed for adults to assemble, alone or working with a child to help them develop skills.

The components in the kit are the same as we use to make our toys, which are certified safe to CE EN-71 standards, but your construction methods and how you finish the kit will affect its safety as a toy. This is your responsibility alone.

If children are involved in assembling the kit, they should always be supervised. Due to the small parts in the kit, it should be kept away from children under 3 years old.

  1. Ben

    Really enjoyed making this kit.
    Simple but satisfying to sand smooth and stick wheels on, and my son’s been very keen to play with it. Bought another as soon as I was finished.
