GIFT NAME: The Original Big Wheel

What is it? The iconic ride-on toy we know and love!

Why do I love it?  Who doesn’t love Big Wheel.  I love it because it it’s a timeless toy.  I love that it’s now Made In The USA!  I love that Big Wheel encourages outside play.  And I love that at around $50 it represents great value as it’s built to last and will be a go-to toy for years.

Who would you give it to?  Ages 3-8.  There’s a pink/purple model for girls too.

When & where can we buy it? Available now at retail stores everywhere.

What’s the retail price? Around $50


BONUS:  What do you think of a Big Wheel for big kids?  Here’s a adult size Big Wheel.  Will they make this plus size Big Wheel in the future?  Hmmmmm…who knows….
