Hitch’s Pedal Car Memories

Hitch's Pedal Car Memories

Pedal cars have come a long way since I had one as a child…

Back then, a rusty metal model was my pride and joy. It was red in colour with a few stripes added, freehand and in crayon, to make it go faster.

Actually it was about as sophisticated as a foot powered Flintstonesmobile!

Never the less I loved it and played in it all the time!

These days there are up-market pedal cars aplenty for kids to nag their parents about – we all know the power of nag-power – and of course it allows car manufacturers to start attracting potential buyers to the brand early on.

They are elaborate and alluring, but I wonder whether they are any more enjoyable for children of today to play with than my humble little model was, all those years ago.
