Toy car, constructed from found material, including a metal sardine can, cardboard, scrap wood and plastic bottle lids. It was made by an eight year old boy from the Douar Ouaraben village, in 2007.

The name 'Jawal' on the card inside the car, with a barcode and recharge code, is probably a phone card from the Jawwal Palestine Cellular Communications company.

It is part of a group of traditional toys collected in the Anti-Atlas area of Morocco by Belgium Socio-cultural Anthropologist Jean-Pierre Rossie, during the period 2005-2011.
