Retro Toys and Treasures Bring Back the Pleasures of the Past

Whether you are nostalgic for simpler times or you simply want your kids to experience active play that does not involve a remote control or video screen, retro toys are the perfect way to bring back the pleasures of the past. Below are just a few of the beautifully-crafted, sturdy vintage-style toys and other treasures that can provide hour after hour of safe and wholesome fun.

Radio Flyer Inchworm

A few decades ago, nearly every American child had their own Radio Flyer inchworm; all it takes to make this adorable ride-on “go” is bouncing up and down. Safe for kids aged 2 to 5, this friendly toy helps children develop balance and large motor skills.

American Retro and Airflow Collectibles Pedal Cars and Planes

Let your child’s imagination soar with American Retro and Airflow Collectibles retro ride-on toys, including pedal cars, planes, and trains. These stainless-steel ride-ons meet or exceed all current safety standards; the durable construction ensures that your child, and even your grandchildren, will enjoy these fanciful toys for years to come.

Radio Flyer Retro Rocket

The Radio Flyer Retro Rocket pedal toy sports vintage styling, along with realistic “outer space” sounds (activated by rolling the wheels) and under-the-seat storage to take along everything your child needs for the next important “mission.”

Airflow Collectibles Tricycles

Airflow retro tricycles are stunning reproductions of the original Sky King Trikes of 1936. These steel trikes boast fabulous powder coats, chrome insignias, solid rubber tires, sealed ball bearing, rubber handles, and light that really does work. Why spend over $3,000 for an original trike that is in bad, as well as, unsafe condition, when you can buy a perfect replica in pristine condition? For even younger children, Airflow makes junior-sized tricycles that are exactly the same in every way, just scaled-down.

American Retro Coke Machine

While you may not be old enough to remember the first Coca Cola machines, back when a cold one cost only a few cents, you are sure to appreciate the retro feel of this authentic reproduction of the Westinghouse original from the 30’s and 40’s. This vintage-style treasure really works and is perfect for the family room or patio.

Coca Cola Bubble Clock

The classic “double bubble” Coca Cola advertising clocks, made from the 1940s to the 1960s, are among the most attractive vintage clocks available. Add one of these fully-functional electric clocks (no batteries required) to your den or family room to give your d├ęcor a genuine retro look and feel.
