Where did your love for Willys Jeeps begin? If you’re like many of us, your passion may have started early in life, perhaps with an adventurous trip into the countryside in your “Pap’s Willys“, or on the family farm…
The Willys culture is not just for adults ~ there are many children’s books, jeep comics, coloring books, and cartoons out there that are just for kids (and for the young at heart). Ever watch The Adventures of Tin Tin or Tugger, the Jeep 4×4 who wanted to fly? If so, then you probably couldn’t help but point out the presence of your object of pride and affection. Or, if you enjoy reading to your kids, you may have already picked up a copy of Sheep in a Jeep, a popular children’s book by Nancy Shaw.
If you really need another project to work on, there are many wonderful ideas out there for infusing Willys Jeeps into the lives of children with furniture, decor or anything fun and related to Jeeps. For more bed ideas like the one below, check out Pinterest and type in Jeep Beds.
A few of our members have even submitted photos of various manufactured or handmade “mini” or “pedal” Jeeps as unique as their young owners…
While we’re on the subject of kids and their love for jeeps, we would like to congratulate Boden Evans, the winner of the 2013 Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival Coloring Contest presented by Kaiser Willys Auto Supply and Live Offroad Jeep Supply! Boden did a great job coloring his MB/GPW and we would also like to acknowledge all the other kids that entered – the pictures were all great!
If you would like to share your Willys Jeep Story please send us a line. We ‘d love to meet your Jeep.
