This is my Kangaroo Ride-On Toy, think 'stick horse / hobby horse'...but as a cute bouncing kangaroo!

This is my original design/pattern, hand designed by me then put into a professional digitized format.

This kangaroo is deceptively easy to make...approach it step by step and before you know did it!

Prints on standard 8.5" x 11" printer paper. Some pieces need to be joined with tape to create the full size template.

You will need to download the digital file which will be available immediately after purchase and then print what pages you would like.

I am also available via e-mail for any questions you may have along the way...I stand behind my products and will help you through any steps the best I can.

Make it with or without the applique markings or even paint it for some colorful fun!
