My boys have a bit of a fascination with garbage trucks right now. In fact, right now, Kenny wants to be a garbage man when he grows up (as well as a fire fighter and a storm chaser...). The boys especially love front and side loading garbage trucks- the kind where arms on the truck come out, pick up the dumpster, and then dump the garbage and set the can back down- like in our city.
Aaron is way into Legos and has also always been intrigued by moving mechanisms. So, this is what he made. I think this is incredible!!!
This is a front loading garbage truck with 4 dumpsters. It really works by spinning the wheel on the top. I realize a side view may have been more helpful, but here you can see inside . (And pay no attention to the random Lego head in the black dumpster......didn't notice it until I loaded the pictures...)
And, here it is in action:
I frequently joke that I have "5" children. This is one of those times that I am grateful for that.
