nope! your bro would be wearing a helmet, and the springs would be covered so no fingers would be caught, and red paint, and and and...
And he survived
I remember those rocking horses with springs. Oh so dangerous really.
Great photo. And you're not kidding about that rocking horse!
behind him is a glass tree shaped ornament, it is on the tree in our living room
I had one like that, b it it wasn't red.
matched his hair - when he had hair
Ride 'em, cowboy!
I can't remember if it was still around when I was tiny,
Those ornaments look very familiar to me. My grandparents had those striped ones and for many, many years I had two of them on my tree every year.
I have probably a dozen from my parents, some dating to the late 1940's.
That a great picture!!!!! When I was home we went to Hummelstown where they had a toy store, which was a shock in to itself. You hardly even see toys stores anymore. Town Toys sells all those wonderful old toys...not this new stuff that I think looks like toys. Apparently they do very well my aunt tells me.
Not sure there this came from, but, The difference between the men and the boys, is the price of the toys.
I remember having one too and falling off it without lasting damage
