    Neat collection of riding toys you have there. Thank you for sharing the photos! Some people prefer the patina look on older toys and bikes. Myself, I like them to look as they did when brand new. Though I know there's always a balance to be maintained if it comes down to ruining the item's value by restoring it.

    Haha! What memories!
    I used to sell those darned things at Christmas time in my McCrory 5&10 store back in the 1950's and 60's!
    No telling how many of them I put together before putting them on display.
    Now they're worth many times more than they sold for new back then!

    I also was there when the first Barbie Dolls came in. If only I had known then........
