Rarely can you still find an old fashioned peddle ride on toy that will last for generations.
At one time a ride on peddle toy was the most popular outdoor toy.
Be it a peddle car, fire engine, or an old fashioned hand car, kids could spend hours as they were also building mussels and core strength.
As time progress the all plastic big wheel shoved the market to a cheaper alternative that often ended up in a landfill.
Absolutely no plastic parts in this peddle cart kit.
The cart kit also includes metal wheels, and ball bearings in the steering and drive shaft.
A Perfect project for a grandparent who loved these type of projects but may only be able to paint and assemble now. There’s no cutting required.
Everything is cut and already glued together, including the seat made of ¾” wood and the horse made of ¾” laminated pine plywood.
Pony cart comes with the two wheel cart hitched to a wooden pony. The peddles not only connect to the drive shaft, but they also connect to the horse legs to simulate the horse trotting along as the child rides.
Pony cart is built in an Amish blacksmith shop and ships already assembled ready for paint, stain or varnish.
Cart is used by Amish children from the ages of 5 up to 11.
The cart and horse measures around 40” long, 24” wide and 18” high.
Surfaces are sanded smooth but may need a final sanding before finishing. Metal hardware will also need to be painted.
Pony cart is sold unfinished so that it can be painted, or stained and varnished to match a child’s image of their favorite pony.
This also means the finish can be hand selected for those who are concerned with what is in the finish.
