The Twig Racer is an old fashioned folk toy that is powered by a thin bendy branch you find in your yard. Look for a hardwood twig that is already on the ground like under a maple tree or oak. It should be thin, curved, and about 18"-20" long. Be careful when you whittle the thick end of the stick to fit into the stick holder on front of the Twig Racer.

To build the JEMTOY Twig Racer you will need the curved 'C' shaped stick, about 18" of string, white glue, paper towels and cotton swabs to clean up glue blobs, and 1/8" thick Proof Grade Medium Plywood or MDF. Put a small toy inside to give it a ride!

This turned out so cute and was so easy to assemble! I made one and gave it to beekeeper friends for Christmas! Thanks for the great file!

The file loaded easily into the Glowforge program & I cut the game out of PG draft board. I am still deciding if I will take the time to paint any details, as I like the clean design on draft board more than I expected. The pieces fit together well with minimal glue. Though the design of the board was modified (slots + peg disc holders) from the original shape, there was a design intent behind it that keeps the game more organized. "Form follows function," and I felt that the changes made in this design were well thought out for gameplay. We are currently studying Ancient Mesopotamia for History, and this was an excellent activity to add to our studies. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the video of Tom Scott vs Irving Finkel playing the Royal Game of Ur. Watch it... it will make you want to play the Royal Game of Ur.
