Can You Dig It?

In my day job I’m a construction worker, part of an earth-moving crew. I work around heavy construction machinery all day.

And my three-year-old son loves construction equipment, especially excavators. For Christmas we got him the Juniors construction site set, figuring that since he already has the manual dexterity and pattern-recognition to do multiple-hundred-piece jigsaws, we could safely skip over the whole Duplo thing.

So I built him this little wheeled excavator to play with.



It has a grabbing arm, like the excavator he likes to pretend he is. In real life this is used for clearing trees and brush prior to construction. I’ve never seen one put onto a wheeled excavator like this before, but there’s no reason why not.
