New Police Car and Ambulance plus a coupon code for this week

I had an etsy message this morning from a loyal customer who wanted me to make an ambulance for her daughter. I’m pretty sure this customer has asked me before to work on an ambulance, though it could have been someone else. At any rate, I decided there was no time like the present, and I got right to work on it.

While I was thinking about how to make it, I thought that I really wanted to have a police car too. I’ve been contemplating these two vehicles for years, to be honest.

For the police car, I wanted it to have a back seat for the bad guy, but there had to be some kind of barrier to protect the policeman. It also needed to have siren lights. So after some consideration, this is what I came up with:

My customer suggested that I make the ambulance just like my mail truck, just with the back open. Years ago, I actually did make one like that, and I wasn’t happy with it. There needed to be something in the back, so the patient wouldn’t just slide out. It also needed to look a little more comfortable than just an empty truck bed. This is what I came up with:

                                                  The pillow just makes it seem homier, doesn’t it?

To celebrate my new toys, I’m going to be doing a coupon code for 10% off anything the shop. APRIL15 is the code.

  1. It’s the little details on these trucks that make them so inviting to play with — the lights, red cross, the bars between cop & robber. Charming! You invite empathy with the pillow and little foot-stop to keep the patient from slipping out of the ambulance. Just what the world needs more of.
