Cardboard Ambulance and Fire Truck

OH MY CARDBOARD BOXES!!!

When we moved in our new place last January we have a pile of big cardboard boxes that I just couldn’t dispose of.  My imagination have completely gone wild.  I even created a list of projects that I wanted to do with them and it was only last month that I found the time and space to start my projects.

Check out the Biggest Ambulance complete with a little hospital clinic inside!  To be honest it was not an easy project.  The designing process is the hardest because I wanted it to look cute and fun instead of “too realistic” since my Youtube Channel is about toys.  And I also want it to be very interactive so I made a little hospital inside where doctor Bug and nurse Peppa can do her check up.  The rest is moderately easy because you just need a lot of patience cutting cardboards and papers and then sticking them onto the ambulance plus covering the whole thing with masking tape to make it more durable.

At the end of this funny video I gave a short tutorial on how the whole thing was made so please watch it if you’re interested in making one.

 

And here’s the Coolest and Biggest Fire Truck!

The main procedure here is the same as the ambulance.

And the challenging part, is always the designing process the rest is just patience and muscle workout because you’ll be using the cutter a lot and bending a lot hahaha!  You’ll know what I mean once you’ve tried this.  (Detailed tutorial and more pictures towards the end of the video)

Bug’s cousins found this video super funny while it teaches them/kids about the jobs of firefighters and what to do when there’s a fire.  It’s about two fire fighters, Peppa Pig and Bug, on a mission to save everyone in the burning hotel.  Spiderman also helped in catching the enemy.

COSTUME

I was already about to give up searching for a fireman costume and was ready to order one custom made for Bug which was btw so expensive and then one weekend in the mall out of the blue while looking for some stationaries with Bug we saw this!

Wow it was so cheap ( P700 / US $15 ) and it already includes the costume and the helmet, bonus the axe, whistle, badge and the walkie talkie.  A great deal! This fits kids 4 years old and up.

 

Good luck Guys !  If you have any questions, hit me in the comment and I will surely get back to you. 🙂  Thanx for watchin!

  1. Wow, you have taken the humble cardboard box construction to a new level! Our daughter had one for a playhouse when she was little, but nothing on this scale! You are so talented!
