Made from "Ngarere" tree (wheels) and Mswaki stick. Used by children of twelve to fifteen years to play along the paths or roads. The one wheel pinned on top of the tree is for the boy to hold and use it as a steering for turning the two wheels. The tree from which the wheels are made must be soft.
