Dreyer’s Ice Cream Truck

November 20, 2008

Dreyer's Side

I’m sure you are all familiar with Dreyer’s (or Edy’s for those of you on the East Coast) Ice Cream. When I was working at LEGOLAND, one of my first design jobs in the Model Shop was to make a Dreyer’s Truck. It was a combination mosaic and car model. It was quite a challenge to make a mosaic that small and still keep all the details of the company logo. Working on this truck is part of the reason that I am so good at Mosaics now.

Edy's Side 1

Although I didn’t actually design the truck itself, I copied one of the existing models, I did modify it quite a lot to make it look like an actual Dreyer’s Ice Cream truck. On one side it is Dreyer’s and on the other side it says Edy’s for the West and East Coast brands of the ice cream. It is on display at LEGOLAND California in the Southern California area of Miniland USA.
