So he went to work building a room of their dreams.
Edgar Escobar – Mack Daddy
Edgar Escobar’s 3-year-old son is crazy about semitrucks, so he transformed his electric truck into the character Mack from the Pixar film Cars. Escobar did an amazing job and even made a few other stars from the movie. In addition, Edgar really enjoys creating things for his family. He does a lot around different holidays around the year. In case you were wondering, Mack is motor powered and his kids can drive it around the neighborhood.
Meanwhile in the Garage – Tank It Up To Eleven
A dad who goes by the online, Meanwhile in the Garage, built his son a tank. Yes, you read that right. The take was inspired by World of Tanks. This project was a lot of fun and for him and his son loves it. For a very long time he wanted to build something awesome for his son. In addition, he got help from the developers of the World of Tanks game. This tank has tracks, a turret and even shoots paintballs. That is so cool! Nice work.
Jose Peralta – Making A Dress For The Beehive
Geselle Valera was excited to attend Beyonce’s Renaissance World Tour. Valera purchased tickets a few months before the concert. The problem was that she didn’t plan her outfit until the last minute. She turned to her dad to help her out. Jose learned to sew when he was a 3-year-old boy growing up in the Dominican Republic. His fashion sense has saved his family from various wardrobe emergencies. When Valera’s sister got engaged at a last-minute family function, her dad tailored Valera’s outfit minutes before the event, along with the groomsmen’s suits for the wedding. Going back to his daughter’s dress was an accurate re-creation of Beyoncé’s designer look.
