Do you remember that scene in the Brave Little Toaster where the dog drives off in the crazy repair shop guy's monster truck? If not, that's ok, but take my word for it, as a little kid, that was a pretty wicked moment. That little lighting in a bottle is exactly what I am trying to convey in the below design. Dubbed the Rad Off-Roader, this jacked play-set truck won't take up too much room or time to build, but will put a huge grin on every little boy who gets to play with it.
Little brother to the Monster Truck Play-set, the 9x14 Rad Off-Roader incorporates two levels, with two ladders, one in the front and one in the back. The rear is left open so that a slide can be installed. Up front, an option plow can be constructed for times when times really just have to get out of the way. The cherry on top is really the large tires that stick way out of the sides for a real aggressive/off road look. Cool details like a front grill, exhaust stack, front bumper and mirrors make this play-set stand out from the rest. Download yours today!
