I wanted to give a present to my nephew with less plastic than commonly in toddler toys. It was made largely with reused/repurposed materials: the picture is an old one that got scratched up, the plumbing was no longer needed and the metal wire was something I garbage picked. With a little cleanup and adding them together with some bolts and wooden bobbles, I made a play station for improving his grip and dexterity and having fun at the same time.
