    Yes, unfortunately we parents get too involved in the sport of pinewood. Maybe it is our own past failures as young scouts within this event that drives us to build exotics for our own children. My Pa never had a workshop, power tools, etc.. Besides, If the kids are going to win, the parents need to help …”ALOT”.
    I look at like this… The ultimate Championship reward is HEAVEN.. only God our father can get us there . …. I love seeing the kids win.

  7. The green truck with the mowhak was made and designed by my 8 year old son. His dad helped him cut it and he did the rest and won 2nd place and best in show. So yes some kids are capable of doing these cars themselves.

  8. Love the sandwhich


  10. A cub can learn by involvement in the building process, how to use tools, techniques, apply finishes, safety measures etc. I wouldn’t want my son to try using power tools or spraying paints without first knowing how to do it and wear a proper mask. A parents involvement also allows for the interaction to help build something together that he can be proud of and learn from. Isn’t that what the intent of the Derby is?

    • The intent of the Derby is involvement with your child teaching the child about all the safety involved the construction, rule & common application this knowledge in everyday life.
