  1. So cute! My nephew (newly 3) is all about "tucks" if it has wheels, it's a "tuck" and don't try to do anything silly like tell him something's a car (even that sweet cherry red 1965-era Corvette convertible he found in the toybox!) I think I'll use this and modify it to other kinds of "tucks" before He outgrows them!
