    IMG_3114.JPG IMG_3115.JPG IMG_3116.JPG Picked this up the other day. Don't know anything about old trikes. I liked the red wheels and pedals and I thought the lady painted on the head badge area was cool! Is she common? Anyone know what make this is? How about when she was born?

    Looks to be possibly late 30’s early 40’s
    Possibly made by american national toy corp.
    Very cool brick red pedals.
    Cool trike.

    When you type @ before a name, that person gets a notification to look at this thread, usually to help. When you put @Ada this little screen pops up. abc.png
    Then you just click on a name, like so... @Adam1231 . Hope that helps.

    Would sound right.
    Torrington manufactured a good majority
    Of peddles during this time frame.
