Need help with an 80's Toy (October 25, 2007 6:49 PM)
Posted by: Mike Santos
As as child, I had this wonderful toy, that now I can\'t remember. It was a large red seat, like a molded plastic bike seat, in the shape of a triangle and contoured for a body. There were wheels under the two back corners and in front there were two wheels attached to a metal bar that went from the middle of the bottom of the seat that was attached to a pivot, out the front and between the legs. The end of that bar had large handle bars that wrapped around the sides of the seat. You put your feet on the handle bars where they connected to the metal bar in front and held onto the bars on the side. Then you moved the handle bars from side to side and it propelled the toy forward. I used to ride it all over the place! I never went too fast, but it seemed a logical thing to do as I was only five or six. I got the toy at the hight of its popularity, so that would be around 1985 or 1986. It\'s catch phrase on the the commercial was, \"How does it go?!\" Thanks!!!
