I saw this toy in Landskrona museum sweden. It was i guess around 100 years old. I liked it and made this design. Not identical to the toy in museum, this is quite a new design. But everything is tested and simulated in solidworks. It will run nice.

front and rear legs are made of identical parts, just as the front and rear axles & wheels. metal-plastic pins or screws would be needed to assemble moving parts together.

I’ve made some modifications to make model easier to print (for some printers at least); in version 2, axes and wheels are separate and need assembly, they are one piece in version 1. All wheels are identical as are the front and rear axles.
