This lego food truck was a multi-day, cooperative project as both boys worked together to build various parts of this truck. I had to laugh at how accurate they were in creating the pizza oven and walk-up windows. I can’t remember the last time we actually ate from a food truck, but apparently my boys are keen observers (when they want to be, anyway).  I am most impressed with the sense of detail that went into the design. Check out the following pictures as we explore the world of legos, food trucks and creative design.

My favorite part of this lego food truck (besides the walk-up windows) is the intricate design of the brick pizza oven. Many years ago, we used to be regulars at a Sunday farmer’s market near Tampa (we’ve since moved from there), but oh, the pizza from the brick oven was fabulous. So amazing, apparently, that five years later my oldest son still remembers it fondly.

Although I didn’t get a picture of it, the outside part of the oven is removable for maintenance (I presume)? That way, no one has to be disappointed by a poorly cooked pizza. Just head up to the window and pick up your order – no box required!
