Kiddicraft Master Mechanic Truck

Words & Images - James Ross

The discovery of my boxed Kiddicraft Master Mechanic was the result of another rummage in my parents attic. This 1984 construction truck from Hestair Kiddicraft (later part of Fisher Price) is a brightly coloured plastic vehicle with cord attached screwdriver and box spanner. The included tools allow small children to fasten and loosen the attached nuts without any completely seperable parts.
