honk! BEEP! vroom! Book Review
Being a mom to two girls doesn't give me much knowledge about what the boys are into these days. Stereotypically, girls are into barbies and boys are into cars. However, it doesn't mean boys can't play with barbies and girls can't play with cars. A fabulous book that caught my eye that's great for both boys and girls is honk! BEEP! vroom!
The neatest crochet patterns are about to land in your lap! Cathy Smith was one brilliant designer when she came up with these moveable crochet patterns. That's right, these cars have moving parts! With beginner-friendly instructions you can easily work up these designs in no time. From a dump truck that lifts and dumps to a police car that can actually roll along the floor, you're going to be amazed at what you find in this book. Not only can you make these cars moveable, but if you'd rather keep them stationary for nap-time cuddling purposes, there are alternative instructions for that as well. Cathy called it out that these aren't just for kids, but adults, too. The dump truck specifically can be filled with goodies or candies and given as a gift; such a cute idea.
Once you get the green light and you choose your favorite pattern you'll quickly want to finish so the cars can race each other. Each vehicle is 13 inches long and 7 inches high, including the wheels. You can easily personalize each vehicle to match your town or create them in your favorite colors. There are so many cool details in the book; it even has a convertible.
Make one or make them all; you will be your child's new hero. With crochet toys that move it's guaranteed to keep the kids occupied for hours.
