Fire truck is finished

I have finished the fire truck busy board.  (Well except for a few idealistic finishing touches).  The best part is,  both A & S LOVE it!!

The gear wheels work great,  especially after I screwed them on (vs just glue). The key door latch is A’s favorite part.   Right now the door bell just clicks,  but it is wireless so I could make it work.

The board is made mostly of 1/2″ plywood (because that is what I had)  and then on the back I attached four  2″x2″ boards to create a frame so the truck sits away from the wall.
