3. Reddit user inexplorata knew a bed would be the perfect birthday gift for his daughter, who was very quickly outgrowing her crib. When he came across free VW Beetle parts on Craigslist, he knew exactly what kind of bed he would be making.

Not wanting to build the bed from the ground up, inexplorata had the brilliant idea to instead build it around a bunk bed, which he was able to find for cheap on Craigslist.

4. Over the next four months, the bed came to life.

The bus has working headlights, as well as a dashboard with buttons and a horn that make driving sound effects.

Though not pictured here, the bus’s colorful interior also comes with a kid-size hammock!
