This story belongs to Jack, Ben
and their daddy, Gordon.
It's a tiny tale about Daddy Gordon's life and the things he used to do.
Now it's time for Daddy Gordon to share his memories
and take Jack and Ben on a journey of discovery.
Wow, great bubbles, Jack.
Oh, no! Jack's bike is broken.
The boys are going to help Daddy Gordon fix it.
What's wrong with the bike?
The stabiliser's broke.
Why don't we get a wee look at it?
-Will we try to fix it?
-Will we? Do youse want to help?
Do you want to get the spanner out of the toolbox?
Look, an old toolbox.
-Get my spanner. Is that the right size?
This was Daddy's first tool box. I used to be a mechanic.
-Do you know what I used to do?
-I used to fix
cars and fix motorbikes.
-And do you know now?
-I used to work in a yard.
Fixing loads and loads of cars all the time.
Ben's got the screw driver and Jack is a big help with the spanner.
Try this and see if it's tight.
Give it a wee push now. Try this one. Is it tight?
-Yep? Right, put the tools back in the tool box, now.
Is there any more tools in the tool box?
-Jack's bike is now good to go.
-Do you want to try that now, Jack?
-Jump on, why don't you try that?
-Do you want me to move the toolbox?
Great teamwork, boys. Now Jack can ride his bike again.
But how did Daddy Gordon become a mechanic?
Jack's grandad loved fixing cars. Daddy Gordon, as a little boy,
liked nothing better than watching him as he worked.
He found it such fun that he decided he wanted to become
a car mechanic when he grew up. And that is exactly what he did.
He went to a special mechanic school just like this one,
where we can see young mechanics being trained how to fix cars.
When Daddy Gordon was a mechanic, it was his job to mend broken cars
and to check that they were safe to drive.
When he's not working, he loves building things.
Jack and Ben have lots of different toys
and they just love playing on them.
-Do you know what I used to play with?
I used to build go-karts, Jack.
We used to get a buggy and take the wheels of it,
and with a rung of wood, and then went down the hill, we did.
-Wasn't that good fun? What's your favourite toys?
-What's your favourite toy, Jack?
-Do you want a go on the quads?
-Go on the quad?
-Yeah? Let's go.
How exciting. The boys are getting all dressed up
in their safety clothes to drive their quad bikes.
Nice helmet, Ben.
And Daddy Gordon is good to go, too.
Here comes Jack, followed by Ben and Daddy Gordon.
Watch out for that camera, Jack! Ooh! Too late.
Don't worry, Jack, the camera is fine.
Jack, Ben and Daddy Gordon are not the only ones
who love speeding around and playing at racing drivers.
Even in the olden days, people just loved cars and racing.
Look at this old film of boys racing go-karts. Doesn't it look like fun?
And to this day, go-karting is still a popular sport.
Daddy Gordon has a great idea. They can build something together.
But what can it be?
I love fixing and building things. You know what we should do?
-We should build a kart and put a trailer on the back.
Would you like that? Know what we have to do first?
We have to draw it and see what it's going to look like.
Will that do? Right, here's your pencil. And there's your pencil.
You draw the kart and Jack draw the trailer.
Wow, getting to design your own kart. That is special.
And they look so busy!
Nice work, Jack. Ben, that looks amazing.
But building a kart is a lot of work, even for this team.
Perhaps Grandad Sammy can help.
This is my Grandad, he's funny.
Grandad Sammy is a carpenter and he can make lots of things out of wood.
Look, he's cutting wood for the boys' kart.
When Daddy Gordon was younger,
he used to help Grandad Sammy to make things.
Grandad Sammy did a great job cutting the wood to size.
When the bits are joined together it will look like Ben's drawing.
We're going to build the kart with a trailer
-on the back of it. What do you reckon?
-Want to use the tools?
-What's this one?
A screwdriver, well done. And what's this one?
We need these. Will we build it up? Let's help Daddy.
-Screw this on here like this.
It goes on there like that.
What's all the glass in there for?
We'll have to watch that, won't we?
Can I have the screwdriver, please?
-Right, will Daddy start them and you finish them?
Using the tools from Daddy Gordon's old toolbox,
the boys will soon fix all these bits together.
-Can I have the big screwdriver?
-You can do that after.
You screw in this one, Ben screw in the next one. All right, Ben?
-Do you want to do this one?
-I'll hold it on for you. OK?
-Hold down and turn at the same time.
-Push it in?
-Yes. Hold it down.
-It's not going.
-I'll hold it down for you.
-There we go. OK?
Good job, Ben. Jack's found a lovely set of wheels.
It's taking shape, boys.
Their kart looks really good.
-Well done, team!
-What do you think of the kart now?
-What do you think of the kart, Jack?
-What do you think of yourselves?
High five, Jack! Yay!
-So, boys, are we going to paint this go-kart?
-What colour's yours?
-Red. What colour's yours, Ben?
Why don't we paint this red, this yellow.
That's yellow, yellow, yellow.
-Are we ready to paint?
Now the kart is built, it's time for the boys to paint it.
Whoa, this could get messy.
The kart is going to be very bright and colourful.
You want to grab that side? Other side now.
-Careful, Jack. Better not get too messy.
Why don't we just finish, Jack?
-Good job. Good job, Ben.
-High five! High five!
The paint is dry. Time to see the finished kart. This will be exciting.
-What do you think, boys? Good job?
Well done. Will we try it out?
Ben gets to try it first and Jack's doing all the hard work.
But he's very strong.
Go on, Jack! You can do it.
-As long as Ben stops putting on the brakes!
-There now. So what do you think of the kart, boys?
-What do you think, Jack?
But now Daddy Gordon has a new job.
He's no longer a mechanic fixing cars, he's a lorry driver.
He drives big trucks all over Northern Ireland.
Driving a truck is a lot harder than driving a car,
so Daddy Gordon had to have special training just like in this
old film where we can see the trainee truck drivers learning the rules.
Once they've passed the test, they're ready to take to the roads.
For Daddy Gordon, driving trucks is his job. But it's also his hobby,
so he's taking the boys to a car and truck festival.
It's a chance to see really old trucks from years gone by.
They all love looking at big, fancy, new trucks, and here's an old one.
-What do you think of that, boys?
-That's a really old one.
-Is that like the one Daddy drives?
-You know something?
-That's older than Grandad Sammy.
When Daddy Gordon was younger, he used to have a trike
a bit like this one and Jack's pretending to drive it!
And their kart is the star attraction.
After a busy time at the truck festival, they are now back home.
And Jack's ready to play on the kart again.
-Thanks, Dad, for making us a great kart.
And we have to thank Grandad Sammy for cutting the wood
and drilling the wood. What was the best part of making the go-kart?
-Painting it? What about you, Jack?
-Painting it, as well?
-No? And what's your favourite toy, now?
-What's your favourite toy, Jack?
-The go-kart. Well done. You've done a brilliant job.
-Will we all have a good hug now and a cuddle?
-Come on, Jack.
There now. Come on!
Get off now.
What a fabulous heap of fun.
That was Jack, Ben and their Daddy Gordon's tiny tale
about the things Daddy Gordon used to do and why he has an old toolbox.
Now Daddy Gordon has shared his story with Jack and Ben,
it's time for them to start their own stories.
Do you know someone who has a story to share?
