Big Wheel

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

The Big Wheel was a three wheeler with a big wheel at the front. It was made entirely of plastic and was low to the ground so there was no chance of hurting yourself falling off.

The seat could be altered so you could always reach the pedal.

I had a Big Wheel in pink and white and I rode it until I didn't fit in it anymore!

    Mine was purple and the Easter Bunny brought it for me one year. I loved it and rode it till I couldn't fit anymore. I used to ride it down this huge hill in my yard and my mom always got freaked out.

    Here's something for Marx Green Machine lovers--a Shadow has been listed on eBay--item #120494919665! For nostalgia's sake and/or display, this belonged to our sons, and we have another not yet posted without the spoiler. Now's your chance to own a bit of history!

    I cried the day my Big Wheel was taken away in the garbage truck. I absolutely loved that thing!

    I had the Cabbage Patch Big Wheel at my grandmothers house. I just remember riding it around her backyard a few times, then it just disappeared.

    Boy do I used to play with these cars when I was little! I combined this and my bicicle to make my first serious girlfriend, Noemi. We lasted four years big wheeling, biking, and yes, kissing and holding hands. Until we were nine and ''too big'' for that. Then the Menudo and Dukes of Hazzard era began and that turned into the thing to talk about and Big Wheels went out of my life. Luckily, they returned......when I was 17 and in front of a national television audience! I was competing for a trip to Venezuela, among other things. I had to race on a Big Wheel to pass to the second round. Luckily, I won, which helped the embarrasment go away..lol

    Hey danny!! I remember the Green Machine! A kid on my block had one and we use to love to play on it!! I had the pink big wheel too. I rode it so much the handle bars finally tore off and we would just sit on the seat and fly down our steep driveway!

    My friend and used to ride our Big Wheels from morning til night on a little alley with a hill between our houses. We each went through about five or six of them because we would melt holes in the wheel from sliding them around so much. Great Fun!
