Do you remember those electric cars from when we were kids? The ones you could climb into and ride? Well if you had one of those, just know that I still hold a grudge against all of you. It was one of the toys I most wanted growing up. To be able to cruise up and down the block in your very own ride was the epitome of cool. I imagine everyone who had one of these awesome toys probably peaked at the age of 5. Because honestly, how could your life get any better than that? Well this dad is about to show you. His son wanted to be a Jurassic Park ranger extremely badly. Unable to find a Jurassic Park themed Power Wheel, he decided to convert a Barbie Jeep into the ultimate park ranger SUV! This guy is definitely up for the dad of the year award.
He started with this Barbie Jeep. If you had one of these, you knew you had it made.
He disassembled the whole thing in short order.
The painting began after the whole thing was disassembled. He’s going with the classic gray of the original Jurassic Park SUV’s.
Then came all the little parts. Simple spray paint is all that was needed.
The red trim is an absolute necessity to this Jurassic Park themed Jeep.
More and more masking and painting!
Now the re-assembly starts. This kid is going to love this thing!
And just like that, this kid has his very own Jurassic Park ranger vehicle!
This thing looks almost exactly like it did in the movies.
You can’t get much more authentic than this. It’s awesome to think that this started from a Barbie Jeep.
What an awesome thing to do for his son! I don’t have any kids, but you always hear parents talk about how they would do literally anything to make their children happy. Well this dad really didn’t have to do too much to make his son extremely happy. All he needed was a little paint and patience. I’m in my mid 20’s with an actual car, and I would be jealous of this thing!
