A Vintage Cart – Recognize it?

What is it about this little toddler cart or bike that is so fascinating to me? I wish I could answer my own question; However, I can’t seem to put it out of my mind. I purchase this little gem from a Facebook Selling Site for $20. Whether its worth the money or not is yet to be determined. I just find it so intriguing.

The wheels are similar to a few items I found from the 1940’s. There are no pedals and that’s another mystery to me. I’d like to find out f they are missing or if they were not made with them. The front of the cart has some sort of name and little wooden beads that a child would have push back and forth.

Have you ever seen a cart like this?

Do you know what they are called or who the manufacturer was? Here are a few more pictures to help jog your memory.

Lastly but real fun are the wheels on the cart. Look at the covering of the tires, such a unique shape. I love the probability and images of children giggling as they rode along while a big brother or sister pushed from behind. Or even little feet as they piddle paddle trying to go, go, go.

Please share your thoughts and maybe a name if you can make it out. Thank you so much. Cheers!

  1. Well, I’m actually old enough to remember these. It’s an old baby stroller, looks like the push handle is missing. Luckily I didn’t have to use these for my children, but i might have ridden in one.

    • Oh thank you, I now have a different way to research… I’m still trying to get the manufacturing information… I love to share and post when I have all the details, this time I don’t. Thank you so much for sharing. I love my little cart, stroller, … stay tuned for more information. 🙂 Have a wonderful day!!
