I love wooden ones, or the ones with a wicker basket and wheels.
Yet they are way too expensive to buy new.
I could probably figure out how to make something... just wondering if anyone knows of any instructions for something like this.
I'd also like to make a high chair for dolls, if anyone know about that too. Thanks!

I put one together a number of years ago. I could scan in the drawing I made and take some photos.

It was just four pieces of 3/4 inch maple, held together with wooden dowel. It wasn't that hard to make, but a drill-press is pretty much required (to make straight holes). I also made some wooden wheels. My wife sewed the seat.

Please contact me via e-mail, if you are interested, or visit my website and leave me a comment.

You could probably just make a frame with legs and a handle of some sort, put a basket in that and fasten it to the frame, then put some wooden disks as wheels to the legs with great big screws or something. Then I'd use wire to fashion a hood of some sort, put some fabric over that. I've never done it, but would if I had a little girl!

Not sure what I'd do to make a high chair...

I was thinking of making a little stroller for ds.
I will get a wicker basket and 4 wheels. If I can't figure how to put a handle on it, I'll just add a decorative rope and it can be a wagon/bassinette on wheels.

Have you considered a play sling or meitei instead?? I make them for a bunch of kids and they LOVE them.
