Toy Land Express
The Toy Land Express was inspired by “Wicked Goodies Santa’s Workshop Gingerbread House”. The design concept started with a 2’ x 2’ x 2’ cardboard model, built as a dry-run. The cardboard pieces from the model were used as templates to cut shapes from (6) 16×24 sheets of gingerbread provided by Bliss Bakery. The project took 40 man hours to build from concept to finish.
