Klutz Clothespin Cars

April 21st, 2009 | 2 Comments

Do you love Klutz? I love Klutz. I have an eight-year-old daughter who also loves Klutz. Klutz is the publisher of those activity sets and books you can't help but stare at when you're in a decent book or toy store. I've done a lot of work for them in the past for some of their books like "All About Me" and their window art project kits. But last year they called up and asked me to help them produce an entire book/set. Originally it was going to be about ships and boats, but then they changed their minds and it became Clothespin Cars. The idea here is that you can make cars out of clothespins. You get that? Ok.
Hey look! Klutz Clothespin Cars
There are six different kinds of cars you can make. You can see here the ice cream truck, the police car, and the bus. There are also two race cars, a taxi, and a fire truck. If you are a seven-year-old boy, you are in heaven. If you are not, you will like it anyway.

As you can see here, I not only drew the cars but also instructions and diagrams.

There is another part of the book wherein you cut out these buildings and make a diorama in which your cars can race and drive around.

While my daughter was slightly disappointed that I didn't do a project that involved fairies or flowers, she quickly opened up the set and built everything. So don't be fooled by the boys in the pictures.
Thanks to Stephanie at Klutz for the design. According to the Klutz website, this will be available in May.

    This looks awesome! I'd love to buy this for my son. We bought him the Air Land & Sea puzzle game for Mudpuppy you did and he has a pretty good time with that!
