These kids reminded me of something we enjoyed as kids in the 1960s.

The karetan kåhon.

A kåhon was any old wooden crate that you found lying around.  It didn't cost any money to find.

You put wheels on it and handle bars, and you had a karetan kåhon to take kids for rides around the neighborhood.

We rarely bought toys from the few stores we had back then.  Our toys were the pieces of junk we found lying around the yard or the jungle.
