Introduction: Dump Truck Toy Using an Ordinary Matchbox

This was one of my favorite childhood DIY toys. This is very simple to make and children will play happily for hours with this. I am not sure, in this age of Kinect and Playstation, whether children even care about making their own toys or not :).

This is one of the common DIY toys in India, it might be the same elsewhere too! Do put a comment, you had played with this one in your childhood! 

IMPORTANT NOTE: As matchsticks contain hazardous chemicals, please make sure to take proper care of kids if they are making one of these. I have pasted a sheet of paper as a layer on top of the matchbox to avoid any such direct contact but I strictly advice parents' guidance.

    All the best! :) If you have access to old rubber caps of bottles, you can add that to make wheels. I will try to find few caps and will post an update :)
