Little Red Trike: A Gift can last forever
Do you give kids gifts that will last a 'lifetime?' This one is on its way; what can we find today?
This is likely the 50th anniversary of the 'Little Red Trike' - our first daughter, Annette, would have been two. It now is 'on display' in the Library in the Garden level of their home here in Wayne County, Utah, where I am on vacation composing this article.
My intent is to try to recommend gifts for kids, today, that they will treasure and preserve in their homes, fifty years from today, and beyond. Do you suppose we can do that? I hope so.
I'll include a couple more trike stories from our family - I do love to tell family stories, of course!
I am also certainly open to suggestions from you, my readers, as well. Have you kept and preserved toys from your youth? Tell us about them in your comments - better yet, make a hub of your own, and share the address with us so we can visit your story! ;-)
Little Red Trike on Amazon
Let's start right off with an Amazon version of their 'Little Red Trike' listing - will one of these work for you? If so, you can order today, right here and now. I hope that works for you. Or, continue to shop... ;-)
Has your family preserved toys from your youth? - Share your story in the comments! Thanks!
Is there a toy in your family received more than 50 years ago?
I got a Trike on my 4th birthday! ;-)
It was neither Little, nor Red! Mom took the photo, on the farm! ;-)
I suppose we each have a story of a trike we got as a gift in our younger days. This is mine.
You can easily see that we did not have nice pavement to ride on... just dirt, although some of is, around this post, was fairly level. Our house was behind Mom, as she took this photo. That was many years before the house was built onto a couple of times, of course. There was later a cement well cover put in, just about where the front of my trike was... a story for another day, perhaps.
I hope you will share your trike story in the comments! Thanks! ;-)
Trial run on his new Trike
21st Century trike on a trial run with Dad close by... ;-)
My Grandson had a trike when he was young, too, of course. I think it may already be gone... his sister has outgrown it, as well.
He doesn't look real excited about it... even though he has nice flat concrete to ride on. He has no idea the 'advantages' he had at the time?!? ;-)
