Kiddie-mobiles

 Fire engine pedal car

Ding, ding, ding. Make way for the fire engine!

Remember driving when there was much less traffic and most people obeyed the speed limit?

In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I  am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

You just activated some old memories that were locked up in my brain.

I am sure these created a lot of childhood happiness.

My cousin had a fire engine like this one. Such fun! Love the tractor, too. My brother and I needed on of those to play farmer. We used a tricycle. lol

Sharon Wagner said...

Oldies but cuties.

Rose said...

Love these...and yes, I do remember less traffic and people driving the speed limit. It is amazing at the amount of traffic there is now compared to say 25 years ago. It is a constant stream of traffic almost anywhere we go.

Birdman said...

I wizzed around in a firetruck just like that.

see you there! said...

Oh boy do I like that tractor.

Judy said...

Those are both cute and kind of unusual too.

TexWisGirl said...

Pedal cars are highly collectible these days fetching good prices although the fire truck looks as if it may be a repop (reproduction).

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I bet you there wouldn't be many kids who could resist these gorgeous little cars EG.

Marie said...

They are so wonderful. Cute memories!

Sylvia K said...

Oh, how fun, EG!! My sons would have loved driving these around when they were little guys -- my daughters probably would have, too!! Great memories indeed!! Thanks so much for sharing these! Have a beautiful new week!!

Lois Evensen said...

How cute! My brothers had a similar red fire truck. :)

Linda W. said...

wonderful pedal tractors.

Amy Burzese said...

Love seeing the old petal cars. The two wheels on that little tractor and just great!

RedPat said...

I love these, EG! Wish I had one when I was a kid.

Gail Dixon said...

I remember riding a pedal car when I was little, but I don't think it was mine. What wonderful memories these images bring up.

Mascha said...

How lovely and funny!

Ginny said...

These are awesome, more like showpieces than toys. When there were only four cars in the whole country, two of them wrecked into each in Ohio, injuring both drivers. This story is totally unbelievable, but apparently true.

Photo Cache said...

if i were a kid, i'd want one. on second thought, i'm no longer a kid and i still want one :)

W. Latane Barton said...

any kid would love to have one, old or new, they'd love it.

A young child's dream.

By the way--the bunkers under the Denver airport are vehemently denied. :-) Just FYI, a lot of people don't understand why the murals are allowed to be in the Denver Airport, but the airport is privately funded, as I mentioned, and the people who control it believe that there will be a cataclysm and then a new world will emerge (New World Order) when most people will be gone and the children of the world will inherit a time of peace, but with the elite in charge. This is one of their ways of telling us what is going on, without trumpeting it loudly. It's like the Georgia Guidestones (look them up if you don't know about them). We just had to go see them for ourselves.

So cute!

LV said...

Those were the days.

Randy said...

Those are so cute.

Jack said...

Actually, EG, I can't remember any time when people obeyed the speed limit. At least in Boston, it has always been considered a suggestion.

"Don't trust anyone over 30." Oh, do I remember that. My first job out of college was working for the budget director of the City of Boston, who was 29. He had a wife and two kids and was both mature and a big influence within Boston city hall. We had a 30th birthday party at his townhouse in Boston, and he seemed like he was of a different generation.

Stephanie said...

Wonderful finds for old stuff.

Cranberry Morning said...

I like that tractor!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I love all those old vehicles. I didn't have one but the more well off kids in our neighborhood did.

colleen said...

I want one! I always wanted a dollhouse and only got one when I was around 50!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I loved these as a kid!

Those are adorable. I love the tractor.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

So cute! I will take the tractor!

Small City Scenes said...

I like that tractor. My eldest had a red Farmall Cub tractor when she was young. I don't know why we gave it away before the others got to play on it. MB

Susan Anderson said...

These are neat! I love a throwback kiddie car.
