Trip down memory lane
One fall afternoon several years ago, my husband and his friends were talking about one of their favorite toys growing up … the Big Wheel.
In fact, they were so excited about it that within days my daughter had one – although she had only recently mastered the art of walking. She rode that thing all around the house and back porch, with her little buddy Derick racing alongside her.
Now someone is tapping into that nostalgia with the High Roller … an adult-sized Big Wheel that features a seat made of four-inch thick foam. That’s likely a little more comfortable than the Big Wheel’s molded plastic seats.
But the adult-sized toy comes with an adult price tag … $599.99.
That seems a little pricy for the average adult to wander down memory lane, but I do like the mental image of a dad and his child riding their Big Wheels down the street side by side.
