Big Wheel Keeps On Rolling

When we were kids, my baby brother, who came 10-years behind me, had a Big Wheel.  It was a much coveted possession and one that almost every kid in the neighborhood took a turn on, no matter how old we were.

When Boy was old enough for one, he had a Big Wheel and once he outgrew it, we kept it at his grandparents for all the younger cousins to have some big-wheelin-fun.  Again, didn’t matter how old someone was, everyone seemed drawn to lowering themselves into the oversized seat if for nothing else but to relive fond memories when they, too, could spin out with the best of them.

You remember the Original Big Wheel, (this one is made in the USA!) right?

Speedy, squealy, memories!

There is also a Radio Flyer Big Wheel that is one step cooler (how can anything be cooler than the original?!):

I can’t imagine one kiddo or grandkiddo that would say NO! to the childhood awesomeness that is a Big Wheel, but what about us grown folk…WHAT ABOUT US?!

Um, how about this ADULT-SIZED BIG WHEEL!

I will leave it to you to decide if I’m serious or just havin’ some fun here, but one take-away could definitely be this: do not underestimate the Internets and all that is available out in the world o’fun!

(Dear Santa…)

Here’s the question: If you woke-up Christmas morning to find this beast under the tree with your name on it, would you take it out and burn rubber?

I think we all know what I would do…





Share It!


  1. This post brings back a lot of memories and wow, that adult sized big wheel looks fun. I would have trouble sharing though 😉

  2. Years ago a friend of mine moved into a new house with a sunken living room and old hardwood floors. While they waited for furniture to be delivered, they let their kids ride big wheels around the room. It was the middle of winter and provided the perfect inside playground!
    The adult sized big wheels is hilarious. Not sure it will find its way into my shopping cart, but you never know!

      The adult inclusion was mostly for fun…or WAS IT?! Love the idea of an indoor Big Wheel arena. Your friends were thinkin’!

  3. Hello and visiting from the Wondering Brain Hop!

    The original Big Wheel was my fave as a kid and my youngest also had one. He finally ran it into the ground: the wheel cracked, then the handlebars, I was so sad!

      I think Bog Wheels must be the #1 run-into-the-ground toy in America! They are so beloved.

      I’m not on bloglovin, but appreciate the invite.

    My kids had a big wheel–grandkids still have a newer version–one of our favorite toys. I am in if I can get down that close to the ground. Know I will need a lift to get me up–but should amuse everybody.


  1. […] and I go together like cupcakes and brownie chunks, like Big Wheels and Radio Flyer, like pistols and vodka; we’re made for each […]

  2. […] ride too. (If the last part of that sentence confuses you, then you obviously haven’t read THIS […]
